You Don’t Know Yule – The Show Notes

Become a Patron!

Happy Yule! Io Saturnalia!

Now that Genn’s wassail hangover has ended it’s time to get down to the show notes.

It wouldn’t be a holiday episode without sharing some elf on the shelf images. We’re linking to a not suitable for work pinterest board. Warning, as we mentioned in the episode these are NSFW.

 

We also came across some excellent illustrations of the Yule Lads. You can see them here.

 

And here’s that Monty Python sketch Jenny mentioned! It’s the “Castle Anthrax” scene from “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.”

Wishing you and yours a Merry F*cking Yule and a wonderful New Year!
