Enjoy this Classic Tom the Dancing Bug Every Thursday Panels from the annals of the Tom the Dancing Bug archive Check back every Friday for a fresh, brand new Tom the Dancing Bug! the claus view part III Christmas Eve. While other kids were blissfully dreaming about dancing plums and crap like that, I was crouched in a dark closet, my mind reeling. I had discovered that the department store Santa were fakes! I had to know who else was in on the insidious conspiracy. The television networks? The Mafia? The Communists? The CIA? Most importantly, I had to know if the REAL Santa knew about it. Suddenly, I heard muffled sounds in the living room. I knew it was time...I swung the door open! Boy: No! No! NO! Boy: MOM! DAD! NOT YOU TOO!! Their shocked faces said it all. My world crumbled before my eyes. The corruption was complete. Boy: And so I've come to you. You've got to publish my story -- to tell kids everywhere of this hideous conspiracy designed to keep them ignorant of the truth -- that THERE IS NO SANTA CLAUS! HIGHLIGHTS FOR KIDS Editor: Kid, we just publish puzzles and stories for children. I'm not going to print a story about a Santa conspiracy! Boy: So the press is in on the cover-up too? Well, I'll get my story out -- even if I have to scream my message on the streets! As I left the officer, I could swear I could hear hollow, mocking laughter echoing in the halls. Voice: HO, HO, HO!
