Funny versions of "Twas the Night Before Christmas" are "Twas the Night Before Christmas For Teachers" and "Twas The Night Before Christmas, Legal Version." These parodies capture the essence of the original version while incorporating the comical themes of classroom chaos and courtroom jargon.
The teacher version of the poem tells of a frazzled teacher and her classroom full of highly energized students as they prepare for the Christmas holiday. It contains numerous homages to the original, such as "but she shouted, and stamped, and she called them by name; Now Tommy! Now Sandy, Now Judy and Harry."
The legal version turns the classic poem into a legal document by using overly pompous verbiage and specificity. With lines such as "in the hope and/or belief that St. Nick a/k/a/ St. Nicholas a/k/a/ Santa Claus (hereinafter "Claus") would arrive at sometime thereafter," the poem perfectly embodies the juxtaposition of these two themes.
