Belgium Offends Albinos

Posted on November 21, 2012 8:00 am

To avoid offending anyone, government officials in Brussels, Belgium are calling their Christmas tree the “Electric Winter Tree”.

Say, wasn’t that the Edgar Winter Group’s original band name?

    Well, I didn’t really have to click on this to know that Muslims were involved. But, I did anyway.

    No…it was his brother Johnny’s original band name.

    When any country, state, city or business stops referring to something as Christmas and switches to holiday or winter I am offended.

    The Electric Winter Tree featured, in addition to Johnny Winter, Debbie Harry (using her original name of Debrah Hargenfelder) on vocals, Mark Stein (who’d go on to play for Vanilla Fudge and later become a political commentator) on keyboards, and “Iguana” Jimmy Osterberg (who’d later be known as Iggy Pop) on drums.

    The band, in 1966, made its only American tour opening for The Yardbirds and The Doors.
