“I think all of them [Christmas songs] are good, but if I had to pick the worst, I think it’s the ‘Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.’ It gives that oldie, classic kind of thing.”

“‘Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer.’ It sounds bad; the song talks about she’s drunk and got run over by a reindeer. It also talks about drinking beer … that’s why.”

“‘Jingle Bells.’ I used to live in the Philippines … I should love it because it’s used to be one of the main songs that a lot of kids would sing for caroling. But it’s pretty repetitive to me.”
