A Visit From St. Bubba - An RUA Christmas Fairy Tale - 2022

A Visit From St. Bubba - An RUA Christmas Fairy Tale - 2022

It's that time of year again, and, keeping with tradition, I repost a (slightly updated, also keeping with tradition) version of "A Visit From St. Bubba - An RUA Christmas Fairy Tale"  Happy Christmas to all!

A Visit From St. Bubba - 2022

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through RUA, 
Not a creature was stirring, not even a Markje
The thigh-highs were hung by the chimney with care, 
In hopes that Снегу́рочка soon would be there; 

Cufflinks and Bill have "Biden Fatigue",
While Steveboy scowls at the Tories and mutters, "Fcukin' prigs!",
AvHdB pondered another Christmas yacht,
And Contrarian sleuthed out Chinese Covid plots,

The n00bs were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of toned popkas danced in their heads; 
Andrew and Manny shared a nightcap, 
And Shakey, and Herrie and Orchid played craps,


Then from the corner arose such a clatter
Everyone stopped to see what was the matter
It was B/B, that jolly old chap,
Jolted awake from a long winter's nap

He snorted and blinked twice, eyes open wide
And a limo screeched to a halt just outside
Two black suited men burst through the door
A red carpet, between them, rolled out on the floor

I thought maybe I'd had too many martinis,
But the next thing I saw was 8 girls in bikinis!
Each with long, slender legs, and a tiny flat belly
That most certainly did NOT shake like a bowlful of jelly!

And down the red carpet they came
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name!
"Now Sasha, now Dasha, now Galina and Vika,
now Yana, Sofia, Marina and Nika!"

B/B looked at me and gave me a wink
"It won't be their *stockings* I'll be stuffing, I think"
They grabbed him and carried him outside of the bar
and dropped him into the hot tub in the back seat of the car

And as the tires squealed and he drove out of sight,
I heard him exclaim, on that cold winter's night
"Whether 'write many or few or just one' (which I think is insane)
The best thing you can do is to get on a plane!"

Merry Christmas to all my RUA friends!

May 2023 bring us all health, happiness and prosperity. And hopefully an end to international hostilities.  tiphat

Incidentally, I hope you will all consider making a little Christmas contribution to the forum. Manny never makes a big deal of soliciting donations but if you enjoy RUA, show your appreciation to the owner.

The same to Uncle B/B.

Worth noting he was where the Good Wives are and not Beantown. But now is in a somewhat warmer climate called Florida, where some in a bikini are crunchy, the food is spicy and mostly common sense rules.

I agree with that sentiment.

Hoping all here had a good Christmas and wishing you a happy forthcoming new year.

Andrew and Manny shared a nightcap,

Funnily enough, we are doing just that this evening.  :coffeeread:

Look what the American media makes some people believe:
Putin often threatens to strike US with nuclear weapons.

Warning do not check out these videos. You will be exploiting brainless
girls if you do.



Don't watch this it has Russian women dancing that are not properly
clothed. It will rot your mind
FSUW are not for entry level daters. FSUW don't do vague FSUW like a man of action so be a man of action  If you find a promising girl, get your butt on a plane. There are a hundred ways to be successful and a thousand ways to f#ck it up
Kiss the girl, don't ask her first.
Get an apartment not a hotel. DON'T recycle girls
