    what we really need is a Krampus patrolling the community paths around Hunters Woods to disperse the misbehaving youths.

    • Sorebonius

      Is he also going to birch all the young maidens?

    Krampus! LOL!

    Yes, and any Liberal who wants to think that Central Europeans are just like us, wrap your Holiday brain around Krampus! An old colleague of mine who had lived in Germany for years and married a frau, use to say, “Herman has a very dark side that gets pretty creepy pretty fast.” I’ve learned that the further East you go, until about the Urals and Zagros it just keeps getting creepier in the back of people’s minds.

  • Santa

    Who needs Santa when we have Ken Plum? He give away everything for free, and dosen’t care if you’ve been naughty or nice.

    Curses! Censored again?
