“Christmas Shoes”- Distilled by Kick Ass Thomas

The Christmas Shoes is a vomit inducing heart warming tale of a young boy whose mother is dying, a lawyer whois emotionally distant from his family, and the all-powerful deity that will fix the later problem, but not the former. It’s available on Amazon.com (as is the song the movie is based on), though I strongly recommending saving your money for liquor, instead.

Also: I think you should go back to work so we can afford a bigger house. Tootles!

Robert Layton: Excuse me, sir? The most horrible shoes ever seen by god or man fell out of the back of your van! Are you sure you don’t want to stop and collect them? No? All right then, I suppose I’ll keep them in my car until they become important to the plot.

Say, when you’re in the hospital, why don’t you send Nathan to stay with me? Maggie Andrews: Wait, an older, single man wants my prepubescent boy to come and sleep at his house while his parents are in a different state? Dalton the Friendly School Teacher: Yep! Maggie Andrews: Okay!
