You wanted to see me?
We only have two monthsbefore Christmas!
Mr. Hankey, we called you into let you know that
your Christmas-pageant fundinghas been cut.
But I can barely make a goodChristmas show with what I have!
We just don't have the supportfor the Christmas show
that we used to.
The truth is,some people find you offensive.
Offensive?What about me is offensive?
Some people thinkthat shit
isn't the best representationof Christmas.
You -- You peoplecan't do this.
Christmas is the most magicaltime of the year.
The decision hasalready been made.
Thank you, Mr. Hankey,and good luck with the show.
