In Kluger and Slavin's rendition, Christmas is no longer a time of sparkling snow globes and neighborly good will, but rather a celebration of profits, bonuses, and cutthroat competition--complete with disgruntled elves, outsourced Santas, union conflicts, Twittered conspiracies, randy reindeer, media hysteria, factory relocations, toxic merchandise, and a giant leveraged buyout that rocks the world from pole to pole. Packing their verse with hilariously spun rhymes (qThe workers grew grim, as they churlishly chored / while Santa grew haplessly, craplessly boredq) and even funnier illustrations (picture Santa jumping on Oprah's couch and Mrs. Claus in a racy Maxim cover photo), Kluger and Slavin spike the holiday eggnog with smart and saucy sass--not to mention loads of laughs. 'Twas the Night Before Christmas 21st Century Edition, makes the perfect stocking stuffer or lighthearted gift.Last Christmas, a little girl from Ohio found a half-eaten hoagie in her Easy-Bake Oven that had apparently been abakinga ... one of you made a delivery to the big house, Mrs. Ca#39;s prized Persian coughed up a four-pound tinsel ball, then barfed out two TwinkleLights, a 12-yard popcorn strand, and a Bethlehem Star ornament .
