Friday Fun Link—with Bonus Holiday Theme!


Ayn Rand's A Selfish Christmas is the best of a series of National Lampoon odes to forgotten holiday specials of the past:

Prior to broadcast, Mutual Broadcast System executives raised objections to the radio play, noting that 56 minutes of the hour-long broadcast went to a philosophical manifesto by the elf and of the four remaining minutes, three went to a love scene between Santa and the cold, practical Mrs. Claus that was rendered into radio through the use of grunts and the shattering of several dozen whiskey tumblers.

Also note A Canadian Christmas with David Cronenberg and Noam Chomsky: Deconstructing Christmas for additional chuckles.
