Title: Santa's Claw - part 2
Date: December 19, 2007
Summary: More incorrect santa-facts
Number of panels: 6
Steve is looking in awe at Santa who is pointing to a pink inter-dimensional portal WIBLing and WOBLing in space.
Steve: "So what other Santa-facts have we got wrong?"
Santa: "Ho ho ho! Why don't you come with me and I'll show you!"
Steve and Santa emerge from a blue portal WARRP!ing under a sign labelled "tinsel bay 4". A control panel with a Christmas tree is on the wall, and a series of candy cane style pipes run across the wall, through a vertical duct with a tap at the bottom labelled "brandy butter duct #2483".
Steve: "Flaming mince pies! Where on earth are we??"
Santa: "Ho ho! That's another misconception.."
A space station is shown with a green central pod, labelled SANTA-1, wearing a santa cap attached to four Christmas pudding shaped pods by candy cane style tubes. Steve and Santa are visible as silhouettes at one of the windows in the central pod.
Santa: "...we're on board by space station, deep in quadrant X(-mas)!"
Steve: "Incredible! So I guess the stories of you travelling by reindeer are a myth..."
Back inside, Santa and Steve are looking at two reindeer with a blue field emanating from their antlers forming a blue portal WORRNK!ing between them.
Santa: "Actually that one is true - I do use reindeer to get around..."
Santa points towards the reindeer.
Santa: "..but they're telekinetic space-reindeer that use their quasi-crystal psi-antlers to open portals through space-time. Ho ho!"
Santa and Steve enter a room through a door labelled "Workshop 1" to see elf-like creatures BANGing, SAWing and SPANNERing at a table.
Santa: "And in here is the work-shop where we make all our toys..."
Steve: "Oh wow! Is this where the elves work?"
Santa: "Elves? Ho ho ho! No, we use creatures that are much better at using tools..."
The elf-like creates turn around revealing themselves as crows in clothes.
Crow #1: "Caw!"
Crow #2: "Caw!"
Crow #3: "Caw!"
Steve puts has hands in the air looking distressed.
- Santa has a space station
- Santa uses telekinetic space-reindeer to get around
- Santa's helpers are crows, not elves
