    Next year, they will install a catapult to deliver fruitcakes.

    Except eggnog doesn’t come from (or to) Santa. I think it’s just “what if the politics of pipelines were reflected in the Santa story” and eggnog has something to do with Christmas so it’s got to have something to do with santa.

    It’s the cartoonist who really doesn’t understand.

    Do reindeer deliver eggnog??

    I have never heard of Santa and/or the reindeer delivering eggnog.
    I like the idea of fruitcakes delivered by catapult.

    “Do reindeer deliver eggnog??”
    Not delivery. Fetching.
    Before the pipeline, the reindeer had to make frequent trips to replenish the supply used by the elvish toy factory. Now, they don’t have to make those trips any more. Of course, now there is the threat of environmental devastation caused by a pipeline spill…

    Important note: fruitcakes made fresh by people who actually know what they’re doing are delicious. Fruitcakes made in factories by companies that don’t care, and then stuck in storage for two years are inedible.

    It’s like maraschino cherries, which, it turns out, are delicious, when they are candied marasca cherries soaked in maraschino liqueur, or grenadine when it’s made out of pomegranate juice and sugar and orange blossom water, or Turkish delight when it is made fresh (something I’ve only had once).

    No, no, no. I don’t want to go through that WMD thing again.
    My mother used to send me fruitcake from a good place every year - and one small slice was as much as I could stand.

    Mona [3]: DUCK!

    Still… fruitcake are better than candy canes…

    Eggnog is made from reindeer milk?

    Woozy (#9), don’t dis candy canes!

    I don’t much like either, but I’d easily take a candy cane over a fruitcake. The latter seem dangerous.

    Mib [10]: It could be, I imagine. But the cost savings would be from delivery, not manufacturing.

    I only dis candy canes because I know you like them. Which I find interesting. I’ve never met anyone who either likes or dislikes candy canes before. In fact, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen an adult attempt to eat one.

    Candy canes make a great stir stick for hot chocolate.

    I don’t think I have ever run into a peppermint flavor candy cane in Germany, they are all just plain sugar sticks (but with the same red spiral stripe design). Our kids were very unpleasantly surprised the first time they ran into an American candy cane.
