This week’s bit of brilliance comes from Royal Dutch Airliner KLM’s Marketing Team.

Memory Lane Monday: Double Washington

Sometimes recognition isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.You know when George Washington said he could never tell a lie? Well, that never happened. Yeah, that story is a lie.Sure, usually our Monday segments land squarely on the depressing side, but in the interest of a less morose 2014 we decided to go with a double batch of Washington quotes this week.

Memory Lane Monday: Snowden Christmas

For everyone out there listening, thank you and Merry Christmas.” Double standard? Uh, yeah.Apart from having had the worst make up job since Joan Rivers, what Snowden had to say was quite interesting.Tis the season for every media outlet to look back on the year to select and list the biggest newsmakers. Interestingly enough, the man behind the biggest confirmations of our most paranoid fears is strangely missing from many lists.

Odd considering, that this person even just gave a Christmas address which should have jogged their memories.

Mom & Dad’s Worst Nightmare: Daughter Brings Eliot Spitzer Home for the Holidays

The ultimate troll? “Hello!” Ugh, for the love of God, put it back in, BACK IN!While the American Embassy in Kabul was given the Benghazi treatment and bombs ripped through Baghdad killing 37 yesterday, the Media Powers that Be decided it was better to focus on the Honey Man, Eliot Spitzer’s Christmas celebration with his new(?) girlfriend Lis Smith, the now (we’re guessing) former Communications Chief for the soon to be New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, and her loving family.

Memory Lane Monday: 12 Days of a Rob Ford XMAS

Santa Ford.It’s important to keep in mind that he’s not an alcoholic. On Friday some Activist Santas (hey—we mentioned before how it takes all kinds) brought a few wheelbarrows full of coal to the Toronto City Hall care of yes-he’s-still-Mayor Rob Ford.

Sarkozy Santa

Ten to one, the Obamas gave him Rosetta Stone French on 8-track.Le ho ho ho.With François Hollande forcing both the French and Africans into the streets, things have never looked better for the Sarkozy comeback.

Not only was he streaks (or was that strikes?) ahead of Hollande and the First Girlfriend, Nicolas Sarkozy sure did know how to woe opposing parties. Whether it was envelopes full of EUROs delivered by his right hand elf, Claude Gueant, or the over $41,000 he spent on the Obamas, Sarkozy really gave Le Père Noël a run for his international title.

He’s Mean, He’s Green, He’s Herman Van Rompuy

Big Government Grinch.A perfect match.The Grinch of the EU, or at least the incumbent President one, received a lovely and of course much deserved dressing down last month, by PD’s favorite and sexiest libertarian, Nigel Farage.

Nothing is guaranteed to warm the cockles of your heart and get you into the holiday spirit more than looking at what he said.
