Merry Christmas everyone! (no matter what side of the issue you live in) and Congratulations for surviving the Mayan Apocalypse!

Light posting for the next few days, WUWT will resume regularly scheduled programming on December 26th.

Were the 11 twits meant to be invisible? Not sure how to represent a twit, but if anyone could, that would be Josh.
Thanks for the seasonal merriment!
REPLY: Hit refresh to see the Twits

patrick

Hehe. Very cute. Anthony, you need the pics for the twits a tweeting.

RobertInAz

And may you and your have a blessed holiday season.

wouldrathernotsay

Merry Christmas! That was great!

Lance

Merry Christmas everyone.

Kev-in-Uk

Very good! – I expect I’d probably have been far more unreserved had I written the lyrics! LOL
May I respectfully take this opportunity to wish all a Merry Christmas and Prosperous New Year!
regards
Kev

Roger Dewhurst

Humour and ridicule are always the best weapons.

geran

Funny.
Fantastic (and educational) site.
And, yes, Merry Christmas to all.

“Nine models tripping”

Josh and Anthony, that was absolutely brilliant and thoroughly enjoyable! And even though Josh’s .sig is missing in action – again! – I know it’s the “real thing” 😉
All the best to you both (and to your respective families) for a joyous festive season.
Hilary

Wonderful! I laughed so hard, I had tears running down my face. That is a keeper! Thank you!
A Very Merry Christmas to you and yours, Anthony, and to everyone out there, whichever side you are on. Cheers, all. 🙂

dave ward

Excellent! I think Minnesotans For Global Warming could make use of that…

Reblogged this on Iain Hall's SANDPIT and commented:
This just begs for a you tube clip!
Cheers Comrades

And in addition to Happy Holidays, I’d like to sing the Universe Electric for having the gumption to ignore all the prognostications and cycle through another day and another (for the NH on the 3rd planet in this system) wonderful Winter Solstice, and for those of a SH bent, wonderful Summer Solstice.

michaeljmcfadden

Wonderfully done and a Merry Christmas to all!
🙂
Michael, cuddling up next to the fireplace with three low-wattage colorful CFL Christmas Tree bulbs in it…. a yearly extravagance.

Mannic!

Clev-Ah!

Ho! Ho! Ho! (Not Hayhoe) Marry Christmas.

ColdOldMan

Having just crept out from under my bed, safe in the knowledge the world still existed, I’m pleased to wish a Happy Christmas and a benevolent New Year to Anthony and all visitors. Even warmists.
Well it is the season of goodwill to all men. Don’t shout at me.

John West

Wishing everyone SHIRU!
[Safe and Happy Interruption of Routine Undertakings.]

A happy holiday to Anthony and family and to those reading this thread,
From a merry old soul.

There is a like minded one about CAGW on utube but I didn.t save the link. So sorry.

spangled drongo

Great stuff Anthony and thanks for all your efforts for the year. You really make a difference.
BTW, you can add to that the warmists’ serenity prayer:
God grant me the BIAS to reject the facts I hate, the BLINDNESS to embrace the ones I love and the BAD MANNERS to address those who try to show me the difference.
Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

Gunga Din

That was fun. Thanks!

Nup! Didn’t do anything for me. I think I’ll stick with the original! :-O

RockyRoad

The difference between a green Santa and a red Santa is the guy in green takes; the guy in red gives.
CAGW will prove to be as fictitious as the Mayan prognosticators.
Merry Christmas everybody!

Lars P.

Thanks for the good laugh! Now I understand why climatologists prefer to stay in house and study models instead of going out in the cold and get real data!
Merry Christmas!

gregole

Priceless! Thanks Anthony and thanks for keeping up the good fight.
Merry Christmas everyone!

Again, Anthony ; your numbers are right on!

Tommy Roche

Thanks Anthony. After being very reluctantly dragged around today doing the xmas shopping, that laugh was sorely needed. Nollaig shona agus athbhliain faoi mhaise daoibh. Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year to you all.

Goode 'nuff

Merry Christmas everyone,
REP especially to the family of Uncle REP.
Uncle REP will be on our minds this holiday season.
He’s probably smiling and chuckling about this, looking down from up there.

Fred from Canuckistan

You have made my Christmas . . . Wonderful take on events.

And something wet in every cup.

…Five oooold tree rings……Gasp!
Have you ANY idea how difficult it is to mop up the mouthful of Jack Daniels i just sprayed across my keyboard?
It`s been a grand year.Thanks to you and all your contributors for making the argument that so few would dare,and making SUCH an effective fist of it.(With a few well earned chuckles along the way)
Merry Christmas!!

I suspect ‘da Mann’ may be one of only a few folks who didn’t get a chuckle from this post … Thanks for giving us something to chuckle about during this ‘joyous’ season …

Thank You! Humor is always good for the soul.

A Mayan shaman, Harold Camping and Michael Mann walk into a bar. The bartender recognized them, and immediately started shouting “NO NO NO, GET OUT, WE DON’T SERVE YOUR KIND IN HERE!”
Michael Mann indignantly looked at the other two, realized who they were, understood the connection the bartender had made, and started protesting that he has nothing in common with unscientific doomsday kooks, saying “I never said the world WOULD end. I said it COULD end.”
The bartender thought about this for a moment, then said, “You’re right. You never did say when. Mann, get out, or I call the cops. But the other two can stay, and their first drink is on the house.”
Michael Mann, now livid, wailed “but they’re just crazy. I have science on my side. I have SKILL!”
The bartender said, “well, you may have skill, but at least they had the cajones to pick an exact date.”
Merry Christmas to Anthony, and all WUWT readers and contributors. Thank you for all you do.

gcapologist

Love it, thanks. Next ICCC you must all make a video. Perhaps the Minnesotans for Global Warming can add their panache too.
Happy, healthy, holidays y’all!

RoyFOMR

You guys are costing me more than UK Green Energy taxes. Here’s $25 into Josh’s Xmas sock!

10 Lord Moncktons? That really is wonderfully perverse! 🙂
Thankyou and Merry Christmas!

RoyFOMR

Correction: It was 20 gbp but, as I refuse to pay the BBC £140 pa by not watching live TV for the last 1000 days, I have a small stock of savings available!
It’s not quite Big-Oil or other Fossil-fuelled investment but, at least, it’s given honestly as a small ‘thank-you’ to those tiddlers who provide entertainment well above their weight!
Thank you Josh, Anthony, Andrew and others for attempting the impossible, to beat the big,bad guys, and keep us happy AND honest.

Jimmy Haigh

Excellent. The team and their aplogists and acolytes won’t like it though. Very like their “science’, a sense of humour isn’t their strong point…

RACookPE1978

I like that proposed
“Nine models tripping …”
But also:
“Ten Lords O’ Monckton” …..

Grey Lensman

A Christmas present from my place. For those glad to see the end of doom

Isn’t that
God grant me the BIAS to reject the facts I hate, the BLINDNESS to embrace the ones I love and the BAD MANNERS to address curse those who try to show me the difference.

Yep that’s Climate Alarmism. Nothing but a punch line now. Merry Christmas all!

Mique

And once again, Anthony and Josh take us out of the old year on a high note. Well done, and Merry Christmas to everyone.
