I’m posting this week’s cartoon early as a holiday gift from me to you. It’s a hacky Rankin-Bass parody, but it’s the thought that counts, and very little thought went into this.
This comic doesn’t deserve any lengthy explanation. Portraying Santa or his elves as less than perfect has been a crutch of comedy since irony was invented in the early seventies. Also, since it’s a swift boat parody as well, it’s entirely possible that the elves are lying on behalf of the Republican party.
I’d like to stress that there’s nothing funny about the Holocaust. However, Holocaust deniers are fucking hilarious. They’re all the fun of your average run-of-the-mill conspiracy nut, combined with a bitter hatred that is so depressing it makes you laugh because you’re dead inside and no longer able to cry.
