    if you don't mind a moment of levity:

    "Doug's Greatest Christmas Ever" by Uncle Bonsai and Mel Cooleys (borrowed from

    Look at the streets of the city all covered in snow
    Passels of people with presents and places to go
    Filling the sidewalks with carols and holiday cheer
    Forgetting who makes it all possible year after year

    Families flock to their friends for some fruitcake and fun
    A fabulous, flavorful feast for their favorite Son
    But back at the office there's plenty of work to be done
    And there's only one person to count on when everyone's gone

    Doug will be there whatever the means
    Doug will be there to man the machines
    Doug will be there to hold it together like glue
    Doug's dependable
    Doug's commendable
    Doug's determined to be there for you
    Doug's the man of the hour, the company Jew

    Doug goes down to the 7-11 at ten
    Perfectly proud to be working on Christmas again
    Doug grabs a donut a lovingly loosens his belt
    Yoo-hoos and Yodels with the last of the Chanukah gelt

    Santa Claus smiles and ushers him into the store
    Right to the Santa with nachos who smiles some more
    Santa Claus bags up the goods for the Santa Claus clerk
    So taxi-cab Santa can get Doug right back to his work

    Doug will be there whatever the means
    Steam the letters or clean the latrines
    Doug will be there when nobody else can come through
    Doug will make the pitch
    Doug will throw the switch
    Doug is one of the proud, brave and few
    Doug is the man of the hour, the company Jew

    And Mom's in Miami with dozens of cousins and wives
    Picking over the final remains of their lives
    But there's Kreploch and cake in the kitchen and plenty of each
    And a long list of numbers in case she should need to be reached

    Doug cracks the thermos and quietly fills up his glass
    A toast to the masses amassed at their holiday mass
    So remember the people like Doug when the service begins
    Especially since you will need them when Easter rolls in

    Doug will be there whatever the means
    Pack the programs or stack magazines
    Doug's so reliable, that's undeniably true
    Doug's desirable
    Who else can do the things Douglas can do?
    Doug is alive with the power of the company Jew
    Doug's so sensible
    Light the menorah, there's thanks overdue
    Doug is the man of the hour, the company Jew
