Christmas in Korea: a multidomain affair
Oh those South Korean farmers, what lovable scamps they are! So what if they caused a bit of a ruckus here last week - the experience will serve as a useful practice drill for the mad frenzy that will inevitably erupt when Kenny G is next in town. In the spirit of the season, let's just release the demonstrators because (a) it sucks to be in prison on Xmas day and (b) it sucks even more to miss out on celebrating a Korean Xmas.
As an Asian country with a strong Christian base, South Korea really pulls out all the stops for this particular holiday. What they've done this year is to mount a full-scale all-domain assault to ensure that nobody remains bereft of Christmas cheer.
Finally, those opposable thumbs are good for something! Honestly, with the right whiskery accoutrements, I don't think the kids will even notice the difference. It's like having one's very own Bad Santa.
For one thing, Santa Orangutan knows how to crap in its hands and hand it over to distressed-looking children instead of wildly flinging it about. I don't know if I could say the same about Billy-Bob Thornton.
If the sky suddenly darkens overhead, don't be alarmed. It's just a tight formation of Santas performing aerial manouevres. They also perform loads of Jackass-style stunts like releasing the safety harness and diving headfirst into chimneys.
Water-based operations are always the trickiest, which is why Santa has to import flaxen-haired elven maidens for the task. They do a whole lot more than filling out their bikini tops and slowly massaging each other with suntan lotion. A pool party involving a Korean BBQ buffet and free-flowing booze, hot tub poker games and free towel service doesn't just run itself you know.
