BIG changes to a classic Christmas carol

It is no secret that a lot of our loved ones could really use the gift of intelligence this Christmas.

With that in mind, I present new lyrics for the 12 Days of Christmas. Pour yourselves some rum and eggnog, belt this out around the fireplace, then visit BIG Media to sign up your loved ones for the BIG gift they did not request but truly need.

We suggest opening one of these treats each day but understand that some will feel compelled to devour all 12 immediately …

On the 12th day of Christmas, my true love sent to me

Twelve drummers drummin’ … to the wrong beat  Science and morality – ethics and judgment

Eleven pipers piping up without knowing the facts  Do you ‘believe the science’? How about starting with understanding the science?

Ten lords a leapin’ … over giant gaps in logic  Mounting COVID frustration is no reason to abandon fundamental principles

Nine ladies dancin’ … around the truth  Manipulating science – activism and advocacy

Eight maids a milkin’ … jokes that perhaps should never have been uttered   BIG Media Labs announces latest game-changing invention

Seven swans a swimmin’ … in a sea of misinformation  Top 5 Ways Mainstream Media Pull The Wool Over Our Eyes 

Six geese a layin’ … down the law when it comes to personal accountability  Assigning blame in the latest Facebook fiasco

Five golden rings … of protection through natural infection  Protective immunity after recovery from SARS-CoV-2 infection

Four birds calling … for reduced emissions with a realistic approach   What the International Energy Agency is actually telling us

Three french hens … and a bunch of North Americans too chicken to put any effort into making a difference   Join us in the fight against apathy

Two turtles dove … into the beautiful ocean without getting caught in a giant plastic patch   Taking a critical look at the ‘Great Pacific Garbage Patch’

And a BIG Media membership in a pear tree!    BIG Media. Intelligence. Logic. Respect.

Happy holidays from the BIG Media team!
