The Truth about Santa Claus

It's not often you hear the jolly old elf referred to as a "colossal dick". But even as a small child watching this show, I realized that Santa and the reindeer were kind of being douchebags. Via Christy Harden Smith at FDL:

OK, now that I've softened you up with that, here's a fun little variation on the same theme:

"Full Metal Jacket" is one of my favorite Kubrick films, and it's filled with brilliantly caustic dialog. Here's an artistic re-imagining of Gunnery Sgt. Hartman if he were Santa's head elf rather than a drill sergeant.

Merry Christmas, folks!

Bonus Double Feature: Scorsese does "Raging Rudolph"! And the "Reinfather"! Combined in one blockbuster clip!

OK, that's quite enough Youtubery for me. Have a great holiday!
