– Me, deciding to abandon matching the meter of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”


I had a choice to fully commit to making the entire chapter a “Steamed Hams” reference or entirely told in the structure “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” I chose to half-ass both ideas.

Also, some extra info I was unable to squeeze into the story: Klaus’ other techniques are Cyber Monday (discharging electrical energy from his cybernetics) and Boxing Day (a flurry of punches).
