'Tis the season

You know...I think I meant to post this last year around the holidays, and I'm pretty sure I never got around to it. Thankfully, it keeps. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you The 10 Least Successful Holiday Specials of All Time, penned by one John Scalzi, Hugo Award-winning author who once commented on this here blog! Yay!
Ayn Rand's A Selfish Chrismas (1951)

In this hour-long radio drama, Santa struggles with the increasing demands of providing gifts for millions of spoiled, ungrateful brats across the world, until a single elf, in the engineering department of his workshop, convinces Santa to go on strike. The special ends with the entropic collapse of the civilization of takers and the spectacle of children trudging across the bitterly cold, dark tundra...

At any rate. This is just something for you guys to look at while I head back to SoJo today. Next post from the Homestead!
