Twelve Days of Christmas

I went to the door today and the postman delivered a partridge in a pear tree. What a thoroughly delightful gift! I couldnt have been more surprised darling!
With deepest love, Agnes.

Today the postman brought your very sweet gift. Just imagine, two turtle doves! Im just delighted at your very thoughtful gift. They are truly adorable!
With all my love, Your Agnes.

Oh! Arent you the extravagant one! But I really must protest, I dont deserve such generosity. Three French hens. My goodness. You are just a darling of course, but I must insist, youve been too kind!
With Love, Agnes.

Today the postman delivered four calling birds. Now really, they are plainly beautiful, but I really have too many birds as it is. Youre being too romantic, dear.

Dearest darling John,
What a surprise! Today the postman delivered five golden rings! One for every finger! Youre just impossible darling, but oh how I love it! Frankly all those squawking birds were beginning to get on my nerves. I am glad you thought of something different.
All my love, Agnes.

When I opened my door there were actually six geese a-laying on my front steps. So youre back to the birds again, huh? The geese are nice, dear but where will I keep them? The neighbours are complaining and I have had a little trouble sleeping through all the racket. Please stop.

Just what the hell is it with you and fucking birds!? Seven swans-a-swimming!! What kind of sick joke is this! !?? There is bird shit everywhere! The little bastards never shut up, I cant sleep anymore, and Im a nervous wreck. Its not funny you weirdo.
21st December, 1997.
The birds were bad enough, but what the hell am I going to do with eight maids-a-milking? If thats not bad enough, they had to bring their goddamn cows! ! There is shit all over the lawn, and I cant move in my own house! ! Just lay off me smartass or youll be sorry!
22nd December, 1997.
What are you, some kind of sadist!?! Now theres nine pipers playing! Christ do they play! Theyve never stopped chasing those maids since they got here! The cows are upset and theyre stepping all over those screeching bloody birds. The neighbours are getting a petition against me.
Stop, Stop, Stop, STOP! Or youll get yours!
23rd December, 1997.
Now theres ten ladies dancing! But theyre not ladies! Those broads are screwing around with the pipers! The cows cant sleep and theyve all got diarrhoea! My living room is a river of shit and the landlord is threatening to evict me because of all the commotion. Im calling the police on you: Creep!
One who means it!
24th December, 1997.
Ill castrate you, you motherfucking asshole!
Whats with the eleven lords-a-leaping?!? Theyre leaping on and off those milking-maids and dancing-ladies!?!?! Some of those poor girls will never walk again!
Those pipers went through the maids and ladies and have started sodomising the cows. At least the birds are quiet: they were all trampled to death in the orgy. I hope you are satisfied you sheep-shagging, self-flagellating, bishop-basher!
Your sworn enemy,
