For This, You’ll Pay!

 

Oh, I know you thought you’d go out and bag yourself a trophy. And my head on your wall, well, that was bound to impress your mates. That’s all that mattered to you; my life was forfeit to increase your social standing within the hunting community.

I don’t like to brag but I really am some special reindeer. And therein lies your problem. My head might be up on this wall, mounted on this piece of wood, but it is very much alive, unlike the rest of me. See these antlers? Well, one day you are going to get too close and feel the full force of my wrath collide with your rear end.

That will be bad, but not so bad as what else you will suffer. My name, you see, is Blixen. Yes, the very same! The big man is out there calling for me to take my place on his sleigh. Without him, he’ll be a reindeer short, won’t be able to make his deliveries.

Yep, you’ve got it! You have ruined, no, destroyed Christmas!

Not only that but I’ll tell you something else. Your name will be forever more on Santa’s Naughty list. I bet you don’t feel quite such a hotshot now!
