To help you get into the holiday spirit, for the next 12 days, we’ll provide you with one classic holiday TV clip. We’ve scoured through our archives and your comments on our story in which we asked you to name your favorite holiday episodes, and came up with a list of dazzling, heartwarming, and totally weird holiday clips. And instead of sharing the same ol’ episodes we’ve all seen (don’t get us wrong, we’re totally down with some Festivus and Holiday Armadillo) we erred on the side of strange and obscure to keep things interesting.
Day 3: Malcolm in the Middle‘s Parking Lot Bumper Cars
The holidays can be stressful. We understand. And we applaud you for behaving yourself, especially after that beyotch nabbed the last Justin Bieber doll just as you were reaching for it. We also recognize that the desire to fly off the handle can be too powerful to resist. That’s why we love Malcolm in the Middle: It’s a show that lets competent, in-control folks like you and me live vicariously through the socially unacceptable conduct of its lovable, awkward, cast of characters. The following clip features Lois in a Christmas Eve parking lot duel. You may want to consult it before you decide to lash out at the SUV driver who inevitably takes up two compact-car parking spots at the mall this Christmas Eve. Also: Go, Lois, go!!!
