The Cycle | December 12, 2012
>> look at what we have here. a christmas card from lainie. thank you! you didn't have to go through the trouble.
>> no trouble. my assistant did the whole thing.
>> i didn't see the picture .
>> it's a picture .
>> looks good. they did a good job.
>> hour hard is it to take a picture .
>> did you look at this picture carefully.
>> because i'm not sure and correct me if i'm wrong, but i think i see a nipple.
>> you might not be getting cards with nipples, but you would rather get a christmas card than a bill. both are lame. the american greeting card association expects 1.6 billion card this is year and that's a lot of trees used to express love. the holidays a huge business for the card industry, but since 05, there is more and more coal in their stockings with a 19% drop in cards being sold. amen. it looks like young people are not into buying cards. per chance because they are not cool. only 1 in 4 send cards and the rest use e-mail or facebook and if you really love someone, you spend time with them. i personally hate cards and hope that none of them send to me because corny pieces of paper are poor substitutes for love. bah humbug . i am the scrooge of cards nj i hate them. they are lame. go.
>> you are not getting from me, but i love christmas cars. i sent out 100 this year. i love getting them. i put them up. there is my card. happy hunting and happy holidays . i put christmas cards i get up on the mantle. i love it. it's a nice way to say how are you doing and love the ones with picturings so i can see the families. live it.
>> did you send a card to the family of the bear?
>> please. no.
>> they got left off your list? interesting.
>> i have a lot of deep emotional feelings about this segment. i have a lot of holiday card guilt. there have been years when i was running for congress that i sent out literally 5,000 cards. it was so many. i'm overwhelmed by the thought if i sundaysome out, i forget other people. will they be offended and i can't deal with the emotional turmoil. i shut down. i'm paralyzed and don't send out any. if you are out there and don't get a card, don't feel bad. no one is getting a card from me. i still love you.
>> this is your card.
>> for you get a card from me, it doesn't mean i love you.
>> if you are out there.
>> i got no cards from her.
>> she doesn't necessarily love you.
>> i'm not sure how to interpret that. greeting card sales are down and think i know why. i figured the out how to game the system. i do believe in if you find friends and loved ones you send them holiday acknowledgement. i am mostly cheap.
>> and weird.
>> the super saver tip from the holidays, take a look at this. my grandmother sent me a birthday card and i took grandson and i changed it to amy, the name of a friend and changed it to hanukkah. it said grandson said amy, you are the hanukkah champ. there is a complication because you have to be smart. this was a male basset hound so we had to femmeinize it. we draw a pony and labeled it in case you can't tell an i carly stamp. a female dog playing sports would like that and the ball said girl ball.
>> what are is girl ball? what is that? that's not a thing.
>> if you have a better suggestion for femmeinizing a basset hound , i am all ears.
>> that are is some sexist crap.
>> no such thing. recovering from that --
>> it wears a hat that identifies it as a grinch.
>> you are so weird. that's like a cereal killer would do that.
>> i saved 3.99.
>> last night was the holiday party and we had a great time with the staff and the cyclists were there. there was some dancing and some of it solid and some of it embarrassing. let's show the picture of the ballet dancer and the robotic dancing . do we not have that picture ? there we go.
>> what are is that?
>> that was awkward. because we are ultimately dorks, eszy invented and showed us this game she invented to have fun doing it. some people were good at it and some people not so good.
>> they got my wrath.
>> eszy was and it's a movie game. we will do it really quick and you name an actor and a movie that actor was in and another actor in that movie and a movie that actor was in and you try to go around, steve.
>> it works better.
>> it's a drinking game and the fcc won't allow you to drink on tv. they are skrajing our game. okay.
>> i'll start with russell crow . go.
>> russell crow ? really? i thought we were doing easy ones. russell crow .
>> he's an oscar winner .
>> fine. you do it.
>> l.a. confidential.
>> who is in that?
>> nor clue. never heard of it.
>> kevin spacey .
>> usual suspects.
>> gabriel burn.
>> the thing with the kid and the -- yeah. steve martin 's kid. a simple --
>> so steve?
>> should i start now?
>> hector alizondo.
>> pretty woman.
>> there you go.
>> richard gere .
>> crist american league ?
>> moving on. i told you the weak link.
>> i don't have a lot of time.
>> as we discussed, not everyone is into sending out photos of themselves. this is something i can get behind. the vatican released this picture of pope benedict with his first series of tweets. we made it a caption contest where jennifer dropped this gem. how do i find angry birds? can you do better? we want to know. send that to us on facebook.com. we say the real world , tell a friend. the holidays are all about family. up next, the new research on the most important relationship. we are talking in-laws and public enemy. that led to a rap
