Least Likely Christmas Specials 2012

It’s been a few years since we did our annual roundup of Least Likely Christmas Specials, our list of holiday programs that are unlikely to occur during this lifetime.

Previous editions include:
Least Likely Christmas Specials (2007)
More Least Likely Christmas Specials (2008), and
Even More Least Likely Christmas Specials (2009)

As always, this idea was inspired by this classic post by John Scalzi, The Ten Least Successful Holiday Specials of All Time.

Now without further ado, we present this year’s crop of Least Likely Christmas Specials.

Wayne LaPierre’s Rootin’ Tootin’ Shootin’ NRA Christmas

There’s no mandatory waiting period on holiday cheer this Christmas! There’s also nobody checking whether you’ve been naughty or nice. In fact, we don’t care who you are or what you’re doing in Santa’s Gun Emporium & Shooting Range. If you can reach the counter and you’ve got the cash, then you just earned the right to exercise your second amendment rights. Anything less would be a slippery slope into socialism! Join me, National Rifle Association president Wayne LaPierre, for an evening of shooting, triage, and more shooting. We’ll sing all your favorite Christmas carols, including “God Shoot Ye Merry Gentlemen,” “Oh Little Town of Columbine,” “Silencer Night,” and “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus (So I Shot Him for Trespassing).”



Chris Christie’s Holiday Feast for One

Join New Jersey governor Chris Christie as he smokes a Christmas ham, a rack of ribs, and a full brisket. No, he’s not having any guests. Why do you ask?



Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Christmas

Open on three minutes of blackness. From the darkness the universe is born, then the Milky Way, and finally the solar system. On the third planet from the sun — the newly formed Earth — volcanoes erupt as the land forms and eventually cools. After billions of years, microbes appear and begin to replicate. Sea life is born, then plants on land, then dinosaurs, then Santa Claus. He builds a workshop at the North Pole and begins to make toys for all of the good little girls and boys. Also, his father doesn’t love him.

    I’ve said it in another blog, I’ll say it here:

    After LaPierre’s performance re: gun rights and the NRA, criticizing the NRA is like shooting fish in a barrel.

    A really small barrel.

    a cliche i never really understood. i’ve always heard it is hard to shoot into water accurately, so why would this be the epitome of easiness? and why would you want to shoot the fish? and what about the holes in the barrel? i’m surfing over to the nra website to look into this.
