Merry Christmas! Any snow where you are? Here in Hilton Head it’s a balmy 80 degrees and I’m sweating. Growing up in San Diego I guess I’m somewhat used to the warm weather during the holidays (water skiing on New Year’s Day anyone?). But I did spend over 30 years in New Jersey, experiencing more than my share of cold and wet and frozen.
I remember San Diego days driving up into the mountains, cavorting in the snow, and driving back to the beach for some gnarly waves.

Carton Mellick has brought together a fine collection of Bizarro tales all associated with Christmas.

- Jeff Burk (Frosty and the Full Monty)
- Andrew Goldfarb (Unwanted Gifts)
- Kevin L. Donihe (Two-Way Santa)
- Edmund Colell (The Christmas Turn-On)
- Cameron Pierce & Kirsten Alene (The Elf Slut Sisters)
- Kevin Shamel (Christmas Crabs)

In the meantime, how about a horny Santa that steps out on Mrs. Claus or a drugged-out Snowman who earns his keep by dancing in a biker bar and giving snow-jobs on the side or the elf-porn about twin-sisters that just can’t say No.

Even though the “War on Christmas” is fake and silly, it’s a vivid illustration of the right-wing noise machine in action. It’s the same noise machine used day in and day out to poison our news media with lies and smears. Here is a little video from Media Matters on the war on Christmas:
