Have some Christmas weirdness

Thursday, December 6th, 2012

And if you liked that (and only if you liked that):

If you didn’t like that, you’re probably going WTF??? about now. Well, to each his own.

The other night, I watched the full-length feature that grew out of these strange little shorts. And I tell you, if you (like me, apparently) have a completely sick taste for really weird, never-cracks-a-smile, dour Finnish black humor and you think there’s not enough red in Christmas — this could be your new, guaranteed non-Jolly holiday tradition.

Did I mention that it’s dour Finnish redneck black humor?

    Wow. I looooved it! So wierd!

  2. Claire Says:

    Ohgood. I’m glad somebody around here shares a taste for deadpan weirdness. :-)

  3. Joel Says:

    “We believe in you, and wish you were safe.” Heh.

    I like Finnish redneck black humor. It’s like American redneck black humor, but quieter and with better production values.

  4. Joel Says:

    And fewer fart jokes.

  5. Laird Says:

    Well, that was, um, odd. Did you read the “disclaimers” at the end of the second (longer) one? “The events in this photoplay are real . . . . Dozens of Father Christmases were seriously hurt during the filming of this teleplay . . . .” They know how to push all the right buttons!

  6. Mike Says:

    Epic.

    I hope, one day, to be able to afford a guided Father Christmas hunt. ;)

  7. EN Says:

    Loved the second one. Great execution scene with the child as bait. Doesn’t get any better.

  8. A.G. Says:

    The first video bears a striking resemblance to The Dove’s and my initial courtship, and the training I am undergoing.

  9. leonard Says:

    My kind of humor. Thanks for the laughs.

  10. The Infamous Oregon Lawhobbit Says:

    Oh. My. Gawd.

    I cannot believe it.

    Once I got to the “product preparation” portion, there could be no doubt in my mind – the essence was perfect!

    JIM BOVARD IS ACTUALLY A FATHER CHRISTMAS!!!!!

    Wonderful find, Claire, thanks!!

  11. LarryA Says:

    What is it about Finland that it produces the same kind of humor as a rape crisis agency?

  12. Johnathan Says:

    I once spent a week and a half in Finland, some of which was in a remote cabin on a lake way up north of the Arctic Circle in Lapland.

    The reindeer meat tasted really good, but I’ll never again be able to look a child in the eye at Christmas time.

  13. Jim Bovard Says:

    LawHobbit, thanks for the heads-up. I finally have an excuse to revise my resume.

  14. The Infamous Oregon Lawhobbit Says:

    Yep, once you’re out of the Christmas Closet, you can never go back.

  15. Kent McManigal Says:

    Merry Christmas from Chiron Beta Prime!

  16. Claire Says:

    Kent — Now there’s an oldie-but-goodie. And yep — more Christmas weirdness!

  17. ILTim Says:

    That was REFRESHING!! Lol, I definately like the offbeat stuff. That was a good laugh a lovely little mock of the PC ‘do and say as we all think someone else thinks is appropriate and calming’ shtick.
