A twist on the classic holiday song, complete with FDA condemnation.

With Christmas rapidly approaching, Dr. D hopes all of the readers that celebrate Christmas have completed their shopping. FYI, Dr. D has not but will begin shopping with a vengeance ASAP. For this week’s guidance, the doctor will change things up a bit and share a song with the readers. Please remember to keep the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas” written by Frederic Austin (English composer) in 1909 in mind. The doctor is quite sure that my version will have Mr. Austin rolling over in his proverbial grave as Dr. D revises this objet trouvé (look-it-up) and gives it new meaning. Enjoy!
