X-mas in Woody Creek – Hunter S. Thompson

I set a trap in the chimney for

Santa Claus last night, but

all I caught was a huge skunk

with rabies.

 

It taught me a harsh lesson

about God & the way he works:

Never use hooks on dry land.

 

They don’t call those dumb

bastards “fish” for nothing, &

skunks can’t live under water.

 

It also taught me, once again,

that Santa Claus is a liar. He

skips many houses & he cheats

a lot of children. He never said

he didn’t have a few cruel Jokes

in his bag – but putting a skunk

down my chimney was over the

line. That was crazy.
