    For the last time, Nathan, the sword requires triple A’s to light up and make noise. NOT triple K’s!!

    Santa: “I know you’ll do the honorable thing.”

    Soldier: “If in 2013 people still believe in you, surely they’ll believe in thousands of Black Confederates, or even a whole regiment of Negro cooks.”

    Merry Christmas, Kevin. Keep up the good work!
