The 12 Seals of Christmas #8
Ooooh, this one is a beauty! Taken from a certificate of admittance to the fraternity of Masters and Seamen of Dundee, it is still a lovely, rich red and has a crisp 'dundee' printed underneath an image of a ship.
And look, the ribbon threads right through the certificate.Why does this excite us so? Ahh yes, because we are nerds.
SEAL: Ooh, the more I get of you, the stranger it feels, yeah!
And now that your rose is in bloom,
A light hits the gloom on the gray!
ARCHIVER: (Grabbing the microphone)Now that your rose is in bloooooom,
A light hits the gloooooom ooooon theeee graaaaay....
DUSTY: (softly) Ba-da-da, ba-da-da-da-da-daaaaaa
