The final part of the Ubu Xmas Special for 2008 gives us this rather depressing radio theater peice about some poor guy spending Chrismas alone, and unable to reach his friends or family.   We've also tacked on the credits and stuff for the rest of the show.

It's the final Christmas at the Tush Whitehouse.  Dubya's mother, Babs, gets to work rallying relatives to appropriate all the furnishings before the new first family moves in, while Prick Cheney works Dubya overtime in signing over everything to their corporate allies. It's the final chapter in the Ubu Hour's hilarous but tragic look at the Tush Administration. Everyone has been asking us, what is the Ubu Hour going to do, now that we don't have these clowns to make fun of anymore.
