Merry Christmas, Whovians! Being the Who-heads that we are, we’re keyed in on a little secret that most of the world doesn’t know about; that secret being that we all know the best part of Christmas isn’t the awesome presents, the great home cooked meals, or even spending time wit your family. All that stuff really makes for a great day, but the thing that really ties the holiday together is that you spend the whole day taking comfort in the fact that no matter how merry a Christmas you’re having, it’s only going to get better because there’s a brand new episode of Doctor Who on at the end of the day. You could be having the absolute best day of your life and just when you think it can’t possibly get any better, that’s when the Christmas special starts. Conversely, that yule tide blessing is also a mistletoe wrapped punch in the gut because the Christmas specials always have a way of leaving us in tears when it’s all said and done. This year, we’ll be hearing from a few of the Evil Geek Whovians regarding what they thought of the newest Christmas special. Word on the street is that this is going to be Clara Oswald’s curtain call, but that hasn’t been officially confirmed by the BBC as of the time of the writing of this article. Could it be that our stocking this year will be stuffed with thousands of tears as Clara’s ego maybe gets the better of her and lands her in a situation she isn’t able to wiggle out of. Will this be the Doctor and Clara’s last Christmas? Let’s find out!
So at this point of your day I am guessing that you are either waiting in a line, or you’ve been up since yesterday and have shopped for the last 6 hours so your ready to crash. Either way, Black Friday signals the start of the dreaded Holiday Season so who better to highlight for today’s Novembeard than the most evil elf himself…Santa Claus!
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for like, forever. Santa Claus (also known as Saint Nicholas, Father Christmas, or just Santa) is a mythical, historical, and legendary figure who brings toys to all the kids of the world in a single night, December 24th….pretty badass if you ask me. The awesomeness of Santa in my opinion is that because of his legendary status and since he is in the public domain you have a bunch of different interpretations of him which are friggin awesome! But at the end of the day, the one and only Santa that I believe in has got to be none other than Robot Santa Claus from Futurama.
Robot Santa was created in the year 2801 by The Friendly Robot Company to judge people and decide whether they are naughty or nice and dole out presents accordingly, but due to a programming error his standards were set way too high so he judges everyone as naughty. Santa Bot shows up on X-Mas Eve and punishes the naughty with extreme prejudice using X-Mas-themed weapons of mass destruction! Plus, Santa is virtually indestructible, he’s survived explosions, burning rocket exhaust, and a logical paradox (which has been known to kill other robots.) When not handing out jolly justice, Santa can be found in his Death fortress on the planet Neptune always watching the people of Earth and preparing for next X-Mas. So you better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout….or Santa will throw a mistletoe-bomb at your ass this holiday season!
