TV.com's 12 Days of Clips-mas, Day 12: Strangers with Candy

To help you get into the holiday spirit, for the next 12 days, we'll provide you with one classic holiday TV clip. We've scoured through our archives and your comments on our story in which we asked you to name your favorite holiday episodes, and came up with a list of dazzling, heartwarming, and totally weird holiday clips. And instead of sharing the same ol' episodes we've all seen (don't get us wrong, we're totally down with some Festivus and Holiday Armadillo), we erred on the side of strange and obscure to keep things interesting.



Day 12: Strangers with Candy

Technically, today's clip (from Comedy Central's late, great Strangers With Candy) takes place on New Year's Eve, but any scene in which someone is beaten unconscious with a Christmas tree is automatically a holiday treasure. From the episode "To Be Young, Gifted and Blank," everybody's favorite 46-year-old high school freshman Jerri Blank (Amy Sedaris) is discovered to be a violin prodigy, and her two melodramatic teachers (including a pre-Colbert Report Stephen Colbert) have an argument over who should be her mentor. So pop a festive fun bucket of your favorite assorted popcorns and enjoy!

Holiday or Christmas!? They are two different things and I now know you only wanted Christmas suggestions but say that now instead of continuing that fact that you are wrong and don't speak correctly!

well, bottron, considering the glaringly obvious fact that christmas IS a holiday, though so painfully obviously not the only one, i would have to conclude that you are either a: on drugs when you wrote said comment, b: such a magnanimous and pompous dunderhead that you simply say anything no matter how ludicrous, simply for the catharsis and momentary high a lesser being gets when they fake an air of superiority in order to fill the empty void inside you where things like a personality or a productive reason to exist should dwell, or c: you are a mental deficient presently taking a momentary break from your present career as a masturbation marathoner to to supplant your usual pile of dead, cold, rotting jizm with concentric circles of drool, like crop circles in your bald, moldy carpet. here's a life tip: most people who suddenly find that most people dont like them (i am making a logical assumption based on your desperate tone of admonition, because i dont know you but i can already tell that i cant stand you,) they change themselves, develop interests and a personality that is not offensive, loose some weight, work out ab little, and regularly wash their face so the traces of the monster that is on the inside at least doesnt have show on the outside. if you cant do that, perhaps consider suicide... wait, i'm sorry, that was a little too harsh... perhaps consider passing yourself away. There, that's better.

You've been mad for five years and only figured out what to say now? Get over yourself. I'm glad my two sentence comment sent you off the deep end to write a long paragraph about how you hate me because II don't give a shit. But if flaming reandom people on the internet is your thing, happy I could be of service.

Please can you try and use clips that can be viewed outside the US? Or provide a youtube option?

We tried, but Youtube blocked many of our picks due to copyright issues. Apologies.

I'm convinced the convoluted copyright laws were written by satanists. Or lawyers. Either one.
