And maybe most significantly, a time to supply moonlit sacrifices of cured grinch hides and spiced elf organs to the dimension-hopping Antediluvian demi-god Santa Claus and his battalion of bionic beast-deer-creatures cast within the Third Epoch of Prehistory to do battle with the dead-eyed demon prince Krampus for command of the multiverse—

You already know what? That is fairly irrelevant. Shifting on.

What I actually needed to say was . . .


I hope you and yours are relishing many moments of joyous merriment and reveling in all of their pine-scented, butter-lubed, and tinsel-laden glory.

And what is going to subsequent 12 months convey?

Will the “I’m not a criminal simply an fool” protection exonerate Rip-off Bankrun-Fraud and his owl-faced polyamorous collaborator?

Will we discover ourselves spearing mutated acid hogs within the blasted ruins of Toad Suck, Arkansas?

Who can know?

At any fee, my merry band of mice and males . . . and girls . . . have laid wondiferous plans for 2023 that’ll get you purring like a canine that ate a cheerful cat, together with . . .
