Saw 'em warming up for Lordi in Trondheim. Helluva show.

Scaring children and giving women spankings....I'll take that job.

This could explain a great deal of 20th century history.

No, no, no. Common mistake. Those are the out of town relatives coming to stay for the week.


So Tim Curry is Bavarian??

Suddenly, I'm starting to like Christmas again.

Just a fun-loving German take on a holiday of goodwill and peace...although the spanking part does sound intriguing, especially to young women in a Monty Python movie.

oooooooooooh, a spanking! a spanking!

i think i dated this guy once.

A spanking???????


CG, Siouxie, do I have to wear that silly mask when I spank you?...

I love a horny guy.

I'll spank you if you polish my jewel...fair is fair. :)

Fine... He goes around scaring kids and spanking women and is a holiday hero. I do that and I get a restraining order. Not fair.

Yikes! *hides in closet*

*SPANKS & WAVES @ Hammie!!!*

*SPANKS Allen* fair is fair.


I didn't know Barry Manilow was Bavarian.

*Waves @ & spanks Siouxie firmly*

Siouxie--Happy Spanksgiving!
(And if you think THAT doesn't polish my jewel, HA!)

According to legend, Krampus accompanies St.Nick (aka, Sinterklaus) on his rounds. Good little children get treats, but bad little chidren get taken away by Krampus in his basket to be thrown into the fire with the kindling. Perhaps the origin of the phrase "to Hell in a handbasket."

Gruss vom Krampus!!!

I can't wait to see that version in clay-mation!

Is this the part where we're s'posed to turn the other cheek?

p.s. I wonder if O'Reilly, Hannity, Coulter, Beck and all of the "War on Xmas" crusaders realize that Santa has an evil side?

This puts me in the mood for some Krampus Karols.

Is it just me, or does he resemble a Fyarl demon?

Yes, I've watched way too much Buffy.

I know there's a "big man on krampus" joke in here somewhere.

I saw Marilyn Manson and several blokes from Warcraft. Perhaps they're just out Christmas shopping like everyone else.

What a lovely holiday tradition. About a week before Christmas, our mom would turn into one of these.

"About a week before Christmas, our mom would turn into one of these."

ah, true dat

*can feel my horns starting to grow*

Siouxie, you horny devil!!

Alien8- Yeah, it was what I was thinking about too.

Why hasn't there been a videogame or movie about Santa Claus getting into a suit of black armor to battle the Krampus and save the good little boys and girls. I would play it, and watch it. It would be a family tradition to play that game.


There's no video game, but there is always the movie "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians." Another holiday classic is "Santa vs. Satan" made in Mexico in 1959 and available dubbed in English on YouTube.


I saw the Mystery Science Theater 3000 take of Santa and the Martians. In fact, I think I will watch it again tonight.

I think..

Last Christmas, Mrs. PB bought Santa and the Martians, at the 99 Cents Only store. I think she was overcharged by at least $5. Eye bleach and leather restraints could not force me to sit through that "movie" again.
