We’re only two weeks away from The Big Day, which you would know if you were following our Shelf Critter Advent Calendar vignettes each morning. Or I guess you could read it on the big sign at Mecca’s front door reminding you how many more shopping days you have left to buy gifts your family will hate. Well, let’s crank this calendar up to eleven and see what happens…
Oh geez, a big ugly Troll! That oughta scare the kids…
TROLL: Good! That will get them out of my hair… I mean, off of my lawn!
You mean the grass around your park bench? Since you’re here, you may as well tell us what Christmas means to a Troll like you…
TROLL: Christmas means helping out the less fortunate in life!

TROLL: Ooooh! Ouch!
BYSTANDER: (Tossing a penny) Get a job, you lousy bum!!!!
TROLL: I should have (OW!) asked for paper currency instead! (Yikes!) The liquor store owner hates it when I buy my (OW!) brown bag wine with all pennies anyway….. (OW!)
