THERE IS NO JOY in Frootloops.
With only a few days to go before Christmas, the council gathers to deal with a crisis — no snow. As the newbies mill around trying to find their chairs, Mayor Ken Christmas calls the meeting to order.
MARIA POINSETTIA, Frootloops Reader of the Readings: Your Merriment, today’s reading is from the great philosopher, Arlo Guthrie: “Santa Claus wears a Red Suit, he must be a communist. And a beard and long hair, must be a pacifist. What’s in that pipe that he’s smoking?” Thus ends the reading.
CHRISTMAS:Thank you, Miss Poinsettia, inspiring as always. Everyone please remain standing for the singing of our anthem, “Baby It’s Cold Outside.”
POINSETTIA: Sorry, Your Frootcake, we’re not allowed to sing that one anymore because the weather is too warm. We’ve replaced it with “Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow.”
Mel Blitzenburger wishes everyone a Merry Christmas, whether it’s white, green or brown.
