    Ho-ho-ho, indeed.

    The implicit juxtaposed images of a “fat, jolly, white-whiskered old man” and a “skinny teen queen” are impressive.

    Yes, “Saying No, No, No to the Ho-Ho-Ho.”

    Robert, an enjoyable read.

    She was blonde, too–but that made the line too long. And I couldn’t work in the 8 girls from the local massage parlor dressed as members of a harem.

    Maybe next year.
