The Fuhrer Finds out that no "Beavis and Butthead do Christmas" is, uh, huh, huh is coming. Uh, huh, huh, he said...

Rituals are important in the Christmas season. TV cartoons,  North Pole narratives and for the socially challenged, watching the Beavis and Butt-Head do Christmas. Beavis and Butt-Head do Christmas features the idiot savants parodying two Christmas Classics, The Christmas Carol and It's a Wonderful Life.

Unknown to everyone except Hitler's inner circle, the Furher cherished his yuletide viewing of Beavis and Butt-Head Do Christmas. But there is just one problem...

The title of this Blog, “Desert of the Real Economics”, comes from the 1998 film “The Matrix”. The world in the Matrix is a Simulacrum, a computer–generated illusion. It only “looks” and “feels” like the late 20th century. Instead, human beings are enslaved in tanks of fluid, wired to the Matrix. Humans are the ultimate wetware, the Meatmen of the Matrix. Also, readers steeped in post-structuralist philosophy may recognize the title as a paraphrase of a quote in Jean Baudrilliard’s 1981 book, “Simulacra and Simulacrum.”
