krampus claws, oh krampus claws

Here’s hoping the Krampus doesn’t eat your plump, delicious little children this holiday season.

[This terrifying holiday greeting comes courtesy of our friends at Beezy’s, where, I should point out, you only have a few more days to take advantage of the Mark Maynard dotcom coupon.]

    The Dutch refer to St. Niklaus’ little evil-doer buddy as Svartze Piet (Black Pete). Little Petie delivers the coal and lashes to bad little girls and boys.

    More sweet love from the “cultures” who eventually brought down the Roman Empire.

    Merry Christmas, bloggers!

    Here in Ypsi we have a name for the ultimate evil as well. We call it Black Jake.

    I am glad to see you finally have gotten the true spirit of Christmas by including an advertisement with this season’s boy-loving Krampus.

    As far as the similarities between Krampus and Black Jake, as far as I understand, Krampus eats naughty children whereas Black Jake encourages good children to eat their naughty parents.

    And, readers one and all, I invite you to meet me here.

    Merry Christmas.

    Technically, I encourage good children to kill their good parents and bring them to the magic kingdom of Krampi as a precondition of citizenship.

    I am honored by the coveted mark maynard plug, and will happily trade some delicious fruit or a giant gold chain for a ride on your rocking horse, after I’m done sweeping your house with my old-timey broom.

    Svartze Yakov

    Ed, I’ll grant you this: I can certainly see why Alice Miller theorized as she did regarding Germanic methods of negative reinforcement in child-rearing.

    I mean, look at that stupid sailor suit. That poor dorky-clothed kid’s gonna be a psycho one day.

    perhaps our unselfdisciplined consumerism culture is the result of childhoods of all santa, no krampus?

    bring back the krampus!

    I like the idea of shooting a series of PSAs focusing on over-consumption, in which kids who have too much junk are savagely eviscerated by a wild-eyed Krampus. I’d chip in $20 to see something like that happen.

    $20 eh? Here are some photos from our most recent Halloween party show. A lick of black makeup aughtta krampus me up good.

    Whose kid’re we gonna use?

    Charlie & The Chocolate Factory is such a sweet movie.
