Satirists Bruce Kluger and David Slavin have updated Clement Clark Moore’s classic poem of sugarplums and prancing reindeer to parody pop culture in Twas the Night Before Christmas: 21st Century Edition (Andrews McMeel Publishing, $9.99, October 2010). Santa’s workshop is bought out by a faceless corporation that trades holiday cheer for corporate greed in this modernized rendition of the classic Christmas rhyme. The story unfolds through a collection of memos, E-mails, Tweets, hilarious illustrations (picture Santa jumping on Oprah’s couch and Mrs. Claus in a racy Maxim cover photo), as well as sidesplitting verse.
