Santa Claus Has Run Amok!

Behold! I give you the eighth wonder (and picture in our series) of the world! Santa Kong! We found him on Candy Apple Island, captured him by carefully aiming our elephant guns at his groin and belly, and have fed him nothing but candy canes and eggnog. Now we have a giant ape hopped up on liquor and sugar. Oh yeah, he also hates being held captive. May God save us all!

I’m Gonna Lasso Santa Claus – Brenda Lee

Oh Brenda, I appreciate your willingness to help, but I’m afraid we’re going to need a bigger lasso. However, your sweet voice could surely serenade this entire city that has plunged into chaos due to the stark raving mad giant ape made up to look like Santa Claus who is hell-bent on pulverizing all of us with the brute force of his paws.

Hey Santa Claus – The Moonglows

Please, whatever you do, don’t call the ape, taunt the ape, or try to get the ape’s attention. It’s best to let him pass you by, and don’t yell out his name, even if you’re doing so in a jazzy, bouncy style with great back-up harmonies.

Santa’s Gonna Come in a Stagecoach – Buck Owens

Listen Buck, you know I love you. But that giant ape is now climbing the tallest building in town. He’s going to foul up cell phone reception when he gets to the top—that’s where the towers are. Buck, I don’t know where you’re getting this stagecoach business, even though this is one hell of song. But that ape is getting higher and higher and we live in a city. There are no stagecoaches here.

The Santa Claus Boogie – The Tractors

Oh I get it. This is like at the end of Ghostbusters, when everyone kind of dances in the demolished streets lathered in the remains of the State Puff Marshmellow Man. So when the giant ape is decimated by the high-powered weapons of our air force planes and he careens lifelessly into the ground and his body squirts all over the street, rather than saying, “Who you gonna call?” we’ll instead say, “What you gonna dance?” The Santa Claus Boogie!

I've been unable to download any of this bunch from JV. I just get a message saying "this file cannot be found on our server". Everything else seems to be working fine now. Hope these songs can be re-posted.
Keep up the good work.

I'm getting the same problem. Let me look into this evening--I'll get these reposted and have a new batch.

Good ol' unreliable JV, making a mockery of our blog once again. I am sickened by this. The fact that you did not call off the rest of the work day to attend to this is so, so sad.

Ok, so it's Stay Puft marshallow man...but honestly, for the first 24 years of my life I was convinced it was atate puff too, so I'm glad to know it wasn't just me!
