Conan's 'Straight-Up Christmas' Offers Holiday Music Without The 'Gay' Components (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Parents and fellow educators were enraged earlier this week after it was reported that a Michigan-based music teacher had removed the word "gay" from the traditional Christmas carol "Deck the Halls" when her young students wouldn't stop giggling during rehearsals for a holiday concert.

On Wednesday, Conan O'Brien poked fun at the national debacle that ensued with this hilarious send-up, which advertises a holiday album titled "Straight-Up Christmas," featuring music with all of the unintended double entendres removed.

Among the many "de-gayed" holiday classics to be found: "Rudolph the Red-State Reindeer," "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus, As God Intended," and "The Twelve Days Of Christmas Minus The Part About Lords-a-Leapin.'"

Of course, for those who prefer to keep their yuletide gay, however, check out our picks for the gayest Christmas songs here:
