The Second Coming

Written by

A band of revelers led by a wildly gesticulating Santa Claus made waves across Columbia this afternoon, prompting several tipsters to ask “wtf?”. The possibly drunk, underweight Saint Nicholas and his six disciples marched across campus twice today, interrupting classes, being mistaken for CUMB, and playing, among other things, a rousing rendition of It Don’t Mean A Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing). We may never be intended to understand their full purpose, but we do know that they are part of the Bread & Puppet theater group, based in Vermont and currently on tour in New York for three weeks. They just started their second week of performances, all of which are at 8:00 pm at the Theater for the New City downtown.

  2. What?  

    An underweight Saint Nick? Don't tell me that Santa Claus is now doing lines of coke off of Lindsay Lohan. That's not naughty or nice. It's just unprofessional.

  4. Fyi  

    St. Nick's six disciples were dressed in old prison black-and-whites, in what this observer takes to be a comment on Santa's use of cheap and disposable elf labor.
