How Captain Douglas "MANdible" Houghton Saved Galactic Christmas

Tom Viccaro

'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a space mouse
Captain Douglas "MANdible" Houghton rose out of bed
And would you guess what Admiral Jennifer said?
"Merry Christmas!" she said, but something wasn't right
Outside Captain MANdible's spaceship, it was still night!
Look out the window to the galaxy
Stay in bed and do not embark on an adventure
