“Have a very Jerry Christmas this year,” Jerry sang, scurrying down the street.
“I don’t know, Jerr,” said Adaleen. “Stealing someone’s Christmas tree feels wrong.”
“Especially at Christmas,” Victor added.
“If they didn’t want it stolen, they shouldn’t have left it outside,” said Jerry. “How else would we get a tree? Do either of you have your share of the rent?”
On Christmas morning, the roommates gathered around their pilfered tree to open presents. Every present was replaced with an exploding package filled with goblin poop.
The New Year Goblin cackled his evil laugh. Someone had a very Jerry Christmas.
