By the tree there's a horrible clatter
It's strike three for Pete Lorre, the batter
All the blows struck were foul
And he goes for a towel
To clean up the gore and gray matter.
Peter Lorre takes a swing at Santa in a Warner Brothers publicity photo from 1942. They say that's Sydney Greenstreet as Santa, but I have my doubts. In any case, the elves at LimerWrecks wish all of you a merry Christmas and a happy holiday season.
