Very early yesterday, we were warned that Rand Paul would be celebrating the secular holiday of Festivus, created by that crotchety old man on Seinfeld as a day to air grievances.

Dan O’Keefe, the Seinfeld writer that came up with Festivus, wasn’t super pleased about Paul’s take on the holiday.

“When Rand Paul tries to seem relevant with 15-year-old pop cultural references, it reminds me of when Bob Hope used to dress up as the Fonz, but that’s just me,” O’Keefe said on CNN’s “New Day,” quoting a joke from another 1990s program, “Frasier.”

But you know what? I thought it was hilarious. So, here’s a play by play just in case you are bored on this, the Eve of Christmas.

And so it begins:

Then America became interested in what other Festivus traditions Paul might be upholding. All I’m saying is, I would have paid good money to see him wrestle with Harry Reid. Screen Shot 2013-12-24 at 7.25.24 PMAnd what would a good rant be if you didn’t include your father in the mix? Especially if your father is Ron Paul and he had this sweet ride he didn’t give to you.

And then there were some minor grievances. Because, who doesn’t hate parking issues?

And what would a Rand Paul rant be without some serious Fed issues?

There was, however, time to complain about the food selection in the cafeteria:Screen Shot 2013-12-24 at 7.26.35 PMIf you were like, “WTF is burgoo?” Don’t worry. Me too. Evidently it is a spicy stew that is often served with cornbread. So, I feel you, Paul. I’d like some of that too. It sounds delicious.

Happy Festivus!
