    Great book

    If you ever want to prove to anyone just how ridiculous political correctness is, this is the book. I believe one of our problems is that we have lost the ability to laugh at ourselves. When we lose our sense of humor things go downhill and we all know what a great place we are in right now (sarcasm)

    Hysterical book

    This book is so funny. I read it, and almost wet my pants. You'll love the story of Rudolf, the nasally empowered reindeer.

    Hilarious book, perfect to take away some stress from holiday season

    This book is so funny, but yet so much of it rings true. Rudolph starts a union & tries to improve working conditions of the reindeer, the kids in the Night before Solstice free Santa's reindeer and the Father is disgusted by the boys Santa has (play guns, EZ bake ovens and Barbies - OH NO! so stereotypical and wrong gifts for children!). Frosty marches to DC (rather than through the town ) to protest against Global Warming before he melts, of course). I laughed out loud as a I read this book. It's a quick read and will definitely make anyone relax during the busy and hectic schedules of the holiday season.

    Let's All Learn a Lesson From Diminutive Timon

    Although this book was written in 1995, it's lessons ring as true today as they did in the era in which it was written. The government still oppresses persuns of snow. Nutcrackers continue to sexually harass young females. This book helps us to realize that instead of looking within ourselves to find the true meaning of Christmas, we should realize that our faults are not our own; they are the work of others, we are all just they results of the conditions of our environment.
