Today's Christmas Crazy requires no analysis on our part (woo hoo!), it just needs you to sit back and watch these bitingly funny Christmas short films.
The first of the two shorts comes from the twisted mind of celebrity chef and writer Anthony Bourdain, who re-imagines the fate of bad little boys and girls on Christmas morning, when instead of a lump of coal, they get a visit from the Krampus in A Krampus Carol.
The second short is a wickedly well done animation from Bill Plympton, who remembers the time when Santa wanted nothing more to rule the world with an iron Christmassy fist in Santa: The Fascist Years.
