Gather round boys and girls, because Clean Plate Charlie wants to share a little Christmas story -- courtesy of Anthony Bourdain.

We're sure you've heard about Santa Claus and how he brings presents to all good little children. But we want to tell you about who visits naughty little children - Krampus.

No, Krampus is not the evil little gremlin that visits mommy once a month and makes her cranky (that's cramps). Krampus is the evil man who beats the crap out of bad children, shoves them into a sack and eats them.

Did you swipe a crunch bar from the local grocer? Did you sneak out of the house to play without your parents' permission? Krampus knows all..and he will pay you a visit.

Watch Anthony Bourdain's vision of kiddie hell, my little pretties. And be good. Be very, very good.

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
