Merry Christmas

Earlier this week we played the Story Game (Twas the Night Before Christmas) and this is the finished product. I thought it fitting to post on Christmas Day as you all did so well in doing your usual funny twist. So without further ado here's your masterpiece...

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house the presents were laid out and the family were fast asleep dreaming of what they'd find under the tree on Christmas morning.

Thay wer tuked in thair beds and snoring hole harted, wen orl of a sudden sumbody heard the jingling of distant bells.

It was Elrod, Santa's newest Elf-in-training. He had bells on his boots to warn everyone when he was coming. You see, Elrod couldn't keep a secret. Especially when it came to gifts.

All the night things were sleeping down to the house mouse and even the cat was sleeping but they awoke with the sound of the bells and all the rooftop clatter. What could possibly be the matter?

The noise rattled my brain and I awoke in a haze. I fell onto my head and was in quite a daze. I ran to the window and there on the roof, was a little green man in a seersucker suit. He said he stopped to listen to some politicians in Washington and wish everyone a Merry Christmas. He said the politicians were looking for Christmas Carol?

But Christmas Carol had been hanging out down on the corner with other ideas for the holidays. She was spreading a little cheer by hanging with Santa and all the reindeer. Rudolph got a red nose from drinking too many North Pole beers. Then Christmas Carol said she was tipsy and the elves laffed and laffed at her, Christmas Carol's face turned beet red and then she promptly fell backwards off her chair. As she arose, she looked out the window and saw a jolly man in a red suit chasing his sleigh as the reindeer rested on top of the roof.

The jolly man started to YELL at the top of his lungs, so loud lights began to come on in all the neighbors houses. In the background you could hear the sirens of cop cars. The jolly fat mans face became so red from the yelling that even the socks on his feet began smelling. He opened his mouth and at the top of his voice, said ELROD had to put him in a choke hold!

After all if anyone was going to be raising a ruckus, it should be HIM not this red faced who was this anyways? Carol? Who is this? Oh he's the mall Santa I picked up at the bar! He said that if I bought him a six pack he would...

I woke up with a start. I was disappointed. It wasn't Christmas, at least not for me. I yawned as I thought about the new begging root for me. It was morning and honestly, Christmas or no Christmas there was no food, so i farted and went back to sleep.
