A "Tom the Dancing Bug" Comic Strip Type of Thing "One Snowy Christmas" by Ruben Bolling Woman: There's something your father and I want to tell you. Girl: What is it? Man: Well, Cynthia, er...you're a grown woman now -- a successful investment banker and engaged to be married. It's time you knew... Man: Cynthia...THERE IS NO SANTA CLAUS!! Cynthia: What?! Cynthia: But the presents are under the tree...! Man: I'm afraid your mother and I always put them there! Cynthia: What about these actual pictures of Santa's sleigh in the sky?! Man: Well, we had some photos doctored. Cynthia: And these documents proving a media and government cover-up? Man: Forgeries! Woman: Cynthia, as you got older, you kept asking more and more sophisticated questions. We just got deeper and deeper into the deception. Woman: I guess we wanted to shelter our little girl from the truth! Cynthia: This is horrible! You went to such lengths to lie to me! Cynthia: It's like finding that babies don't come from the magic baby meadow in dreamy valley! Man: Oh...er, no, we have satellite photos to prove that!
