Season's Greetings for a Griswold Family Christmas

One of the funniest Christmas movies ever made; National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Note the slow build to the famous Clark Griswold flip-out sessions. Clark gets a telegram from work announcing his enrollment in the not-so-coveted 'Jelly of the Month Club' in place of his much needed Christmas bonus.

Priceless lines: Cousin Eddie, "Clark, that's the gift that keeps on giving the whole year round." "That it is, Edward." replies Griswold, "That it is, indeed."

Here's the full Griswold in complete bombastic mode as Clark goes into his most hilarious rant about his cheap boss who stiffed the employees with a lousy 'Jelly of the Month' club subscription instead of the much anticipated Christmas bonus.

"...and I want him brought right here, with a big ribbon on his head, and I want to look him straight in the eye and I want to tell him what a cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, four-flushing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, d!ckle55, hopeless, heartless, fat-a55, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey sh!t
he is. Hallelujah! Holy sh!t! Where's the Tylenol?"
