As the Book Elves decorate the Cataloging Cave for this year's Christmas
Party, discussion has once again centered around the "program" of
festivities. After the brouhaha over last year's performance by  "Mistress
Santa and Her Naughty Snowmen", the Book Elves have been banned from
bringing in outside entertainment.  Somebody suggested that an
old-fashioned selection of carols might be festive and (more importantly)
safe, so we dusted the rats out of the old church organ the Book Elves
traded their old tree fort made out of Reader's Digest Condensed books for
a few years ago, and they started to practice.

Soon the gentle melodies of "Santa's Got a Gun", "Juggle Bills", "Daddy
Shot Rudolph and Hung His Head on Our Wall", and "I Saw Mommy [deleted]
Santa Claus" began to waft through the cave, and out of the loudspeakers
set up on the lawn, and the calls began to come in from the neighbors...

But before they had finally mastered the lyrics to, "Hey! Hey!, Hail !
Hail ! - Frosty the Snowman's Out on Bail !", the Book Elves finished our
latest catalog-
