Old St. Nick loves distributing packages to good boys and girls—or so the story goes. But in Greg Kotis’s The Truth About Santa, the jolly immortal chap takes a kinky ride by offering up his God-given package to a mortal named Mary. Turns out, his dirty deeds spawn two magically gifted youngsters whom he brings home to Mrs. Claus for Christmas. Hilarity ensues when Mary’s husband, George, helps Mrs. Claus go Armageddon on Santa’s creeping ass—literally. Aside from the impending hell, fire, and brimstone, expect to see singing elves and an English bulldog dressed up as the Lamb of the Apocalypse.
