Another Crimbo season has come and gone, and Crimbo Town has once again faded into the eldritch mists. Wait, no it hasn't. Huh, that's weird. Wait -- great Caesar's underpants, what in the hell is that thing? It's not human! It's not even elven! Aiiiigh!

In slightly less horrifying news, January's Item-of-the-Month is now available in Mr. Store. No, wait, that's horrifying too.

We're aware of the intermittent connection problems. There are some hardware issues at the data center, and we're working on getting a solution in place. Thank you for making like a busy hospital and having lots of patience.

January 06
Though it has not yet faded into the mists, events have drawn to a close in Crimbo Town.... Or have they?

Yes. Yes they have. If you have anything you want to say to the Penguins, now would be a good time.
