Hoping for a nice present on Xmas day with the appearance of a snippet.

As dvdcar pointed out, we have had snippets for about a third of this book, so there may not be a lot more snippets for OotL

Consider tunes like

"Here comes Santa Dave,
Here comes Santa Dave,
Right down Snippet Lane..."

"I'm dreaming of a snippet for Christmas,
Just like the snippets I used to know.."

"Santa Dave, Santa Dave, Santa Dave rock,
Sending us snippets, around the clock..."

Of course I could offer to sing and record these, for the benefit of readers here. Recordings of my singing are extremely valuable. They are used by third world secret police to torture the most recalcitrant of prisoners. Broadcast over the ocean, my recordings send kaiju fleeing in terror.

I don't think we will get anymore snippets. We have already read snippets for about 25% of the book, and it doesn't get printed for quite awhile yet.

I've been tempted to post a new topic headed "Into The Light Snippet # 21". The only thing that has stopped me is that death by public dismemberment is reputably painful.
