“What if Santa's Village was run like Auschwitz? Complete with armed reindeer patrolling the electric fences, starved elves and horrific genetic experiments that make people grow shorter and their ears get pointy-er with each new generation. That's the nightmare of Flazzy's world. He got out. He was lucky. But the survivor's guilt is killing him.
“Performed at Stages Entertainment Group, Fullerton, December, 1998. Wild Comedy. A seriously irreverent and potentially offensive Christmas parody. Great for the holidays! Set in a bar on Christmas Eve.”—http://www.lickspittles.com/, accessed February 3, 2006.
