Gah! Flying elves are back!, 13 November 2001
Author: Domitian from Richmond, VA

Oh....this short. What can I say...only that the second half is on the episode of MST3K with Manos, the best one ever. I have some questions, most notably, why is everyone so doughy looking? Was that in style in this time period, like parachute pants and sandals were later? And why is that doughy man (who looks like Nihls Bohr) so full of hate, does he have a demon? Thank God above for his old man, who sets him straight. If it wasn't for "dad", this whole thing would be nowhere NEAR as funny as it is. The dialogue, the characters, the whole "napkin on the head, evil glowering look" thing the old man does...priceless. I wouldn't trade this short for all the "Mr. B Natural" and "What to do on a Date" in the world! "But he BOUGHT-THE-CAR!!!"
