For today’s Advent Calendar goodie, I thought I’d dip into the vault and dig up some of my favourite entries from Christmases past. They are:
- The Best Christmas Present Ever (2002): A heart-warming, if crotch-scratching tale in which our hero gets a little refresher course on the true meaning of Christmas. It’s not likely to ever be turned into a made-for-TV special, because crablice are involved.
- Merry Christmas, and I Mean It in the Nice Sense of the Phrase (2002): “Balanced minds do not see any implied Hitler overtones at Oktoberfest,
nor Hirohito/Tojo insinuations at the sushi house, and neither do they
see the Crusades in Christmas. When people say ‘Merry Christmas’, most
of them are really saying ‘Happy Holidays, and I’m celebrating them
Christmas-style. You do your thing, and I’ll do mine. Come by for drinks.'”
- What Can You Get a Wookie for Christmas (When He Already Owns a Comb)? (2004): The only good song from a terrible Star Wars-themed Christmas album.
