A CrackBerry Christmas Carol!

Looking back at 2013, it's really been a year of Vulcan-like logic around CrackBerry and our other Mobile Nations sites. With events like Talk Mobile 2013, we pulled back from the unadulterated fanboyism that we at times like to embrace around these parts in favor of more unbiased analysis and discussion.

And while I love logic, I also have a great appreciation for PASSION, and we all know a little fanboy product love is a byproduct of passion. I hate it when people give fanboys a hard time. I mean, people cheer for their favorite sports teams all the time (and bring on a little hateration for the ones they're playing against) and nobody seems to mind that, so why shouldn't the same be for products? I know I've been cheered on my favorite companies since I was an early teenager, whether it was Team Associated RC cars, Ski-Doo snowmobiles and more recently my favorite mobile tech company, BlackBerry.

So in the spirit of BlackBerry passion and the Christmas season, we've re-jigged the lyrics slightly to our infamous CrackBerry Christmas carol which was first published in 2011 (kudos to Ryan Blundell for original lyrics). Sing it below. Here's to a Merry Christmas to all BlackBerry users, and a happy 2014! 

CrackBerry Jingle Bells

Dashing through the snow
In a BlackBerry 10 sleigh
O'er the BES they go
encrypted all the way
Three bells on phone calls ring
Make my LED bright
What fun it is to email, ping
And tweet ‘til late at night

Oh, jingle bells, Android smells
webOS has gone away
iPhone Yuck and Windows Phones suck
BlackBerry all the way, hey!
Oh, jingle bells, Android smells
webOS has gone away
iPhone Yuck and Windows Phones suck
BlackBerry all the way, hey!

A day or two ago
My friend gave me a ride
for GPS he had
and iPhone by his side
the battery life was rank
and Siri's directions sucked
We got into a drifted bank
and he knew we were f*ck'n stuck!

Oh, jingle bells, Android smells
webOS has gone away
iPhone Yuck and Windows Phones suck
BlackBerry all the way, hey!
Oh, jingle bells, Android smells
webOS has gone away
iPhone Yuck and Windows Phones suck
BlackBerry all the way, hey!

Every day or so,
Someone feels compelled
To tell me to switch phones
I respond with "Go to Hell!"
Some guy was walking by
In some Windows Update 3 craze,
I laughed and hit him with my Z30,
in an OtterBox, just in case.

Oh, jingle bells, Android smells
webOS has gone away
iPhone Yuck and Windows Phones suck
BlackBerry all the way, hey!
Oh, jingle bells, Android smells
webOS has gone away
iPhone Yuck and Windows Phones suck
BlackBerry all the way, hey!

Kevin love his BlackBerrys white
His hopes for John Chen are strong,
Hit the Apple Store tonight
and sing this fanboy song;
For the top stories today
The next two lines take heed
There's way too many sites out there
but CrackBerry takes the lead!

Oh, jingle bells, Android smells
webOS has gone away
iPhone Yuck and Windows Phones suck
BlackBerry all the way, hey!
Oh, jingle bells, Android smells
webOS has gone away
iPhone Yuck and Windows Phones suck
BlackBerry all the way, hey!
