Happy Corporate Christmas

A little black humour for the holidays. Evidently the Supreme Court of the United States has declared that corporations are persons. Why does this not surprise me?

The person who sent me this URL said, '...declaring the corporation a "person" [is] tantamount to idolatry.'

In case this link doesn't work (computer dork that I am), the clip is called "Hallelujah Corporations".

your link failed due to using a capital letter Ohh ('O') instead of the numeral zero ('0') in the encoded gibberish at the end of the link. computers are persnickety like that.

corrected link below:

and again hopefully with a working hypertext link:

corporations have been legal persons for a very long time.

perhaps a more optimistic tone to counter the corp version of the music:

Christmas Food Court Flash Mob, Hallelujah Chorus

Opera Company of Philadelphia "Hallelujah!" Random Act of Culture

Guerrilla Handbell Strikeforce
13-member handbell choir provided some unexpected accompaniment for a Salvation Army bell ringer on Lexington Avenue in Manhattan

To sgl:thanks for the links! Also great is the Inuit Hallelujah chorus—in fact, I think there are two versions
