Overview
Satirists Bruce Kluger and David Slavin take an outrageous swing at the Christmas season, updating Clement Clarke Moorea s classic poem with all the shock, awe, and corporate hijinks from todaya s headlines.
In Kluger and Slavin's rendition, Christmas is no longer a time of sparkling snow globes and neighborly good will, but rather a celebration of profits, bonuses, and cutthroat competition--complete with disgruntled elves, outsourced Santas, union conflicts, Twittered conspiracies, randy reindeer, media hysteria, factory relocations, toxic merchandise, and a giant leveraged buyout that rocks the world from pole to pole.
Packing their verse with hilariously spun rhymes ("The workers grew grim, as they churlishly chored / while Santa grew haplessly, craplessly bored") and even funnier illustrations (picture Santa jumping on Oprah's couch and Mrs. Claus in a racy Maxim cover photo), Kluger and Slavin spike the holiday eggnog with smart and saucy sass--not to mention loads of laughs. "'Twas the Night Before Christmas 21st Century Edition," makes the perfect stocking stuffer or lighthearted gift."
