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
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.
