In September, a good portion of the Internet lighted up with the news that DMX -- rapper, actor, one-time Ruff Ryder -- was somehow unfamiliar with Google, at least in the form the search engine takes on a computer screen . Two months later, however, we can rest easy knowing that DMX's curious pop-cultural ignorance does not extend to something nearly as ubiquitous as Google: Christmas carols.
