Wiggle He

In 2006 a british man named Dave Bulmer went on the Something Awful forums and wove what is undoubtedly the silliest Christmas story ever told.

In it, an immature boy opens the doors of his Advent Calendar and reports on the needlessly cruel and silly contents. He does so with text and "Crude" MS Paint drawings until the epic conclusion involving the disembodied giant head of Richard Burton, the Herald of Christmas, Burgess Meridith, baby Snata, and a Christmas Syzygy. Then things get really wild...

Dave himself explains it here, which may or may not help.

Since those days, he has endeavored archive the whole mess for future generations (that's you) to also enjoy. As of this writing Dave has posted all of the 2006 calendar and is nearing the conclusion of the 2007 calendar.

The early 2000s saw a lot of incredible storytelling come out of internet forums, most famously perhaps MS Paint Adventures, which went on to become something nobody could have expected. These Christmas tales are entirely of the same mold, and although the first year is of questionable quality it sets the stage for increasingly buckwild tales in subsequent years. You really ought to just start at the beginning, and give it a chance yourself. Make sure to click on "next" whenever available to see all of each day before clicking "next day".
