    On the original Puck cover, there’s a subtitle: “As Santa Claus looks to some of us.” That suggests Will Crawford’s intent was to satirize the, shall we say, obligatory nature of some Christmas gift-giving.

    As I mentioned earlier, all those things travel vertically. This is traveling horizontally. Therefore it has to be Godzilla. Or King Kong. Or maybe both! Depends on what movie we’re in!
