It’s been a busy holiday season here at chez in-laws, but I was able to escape the swarming nieces and nephews last night long enough for my own Xmas tradition: the viewing of a sacred story about 31st-century murderous robots. I picked the second such episode because I watched the other two in previous years, and I stumbled on a forgotten gag that I just had to share with you all. (Click through to see the captions on those four pics.)

(For context, Robot Santa had his naughtiness threshold set incorrectly; he thinks everybody but Zoidberg has been so naughty they should be killed. I suppose he’s more of a Rod Dreher than a Dean Baquet, but I digress.)
What are your favorite offbeat holiday stories? As cliched as it is, we had some folks over for a Die-Hard screening a couple weeks ago, which was good fun. And I need to revisit Bad Santa. Maybe next year.
