Don't Get Caught DEAD in That Sweater!

It is a hard-candy Christmas at Knacker Auto Complex. In lieu of a Christmas bonus, Neal Knacker has invited his employees and their guests to his family home to celebrate with an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party and Contest. What his employees don't know is that immediately after the party the Knackers are leaving for Hawaii on their last family vacation before their kids go away to college and law school.  Much to everyone's surprise, Neal's black sheep brother, Nick, crashes the event with the family matriarch, cranky old Aunt Nattie - the inspiration and contributor of most of the sweaters for the Ugly Christmas Sweater party.  Things get a little wild and wooly when accusations of embezzling, infidelity and altogether naughtiness fly like reindeer.

Wear your ugliest Christmas sweater and find out who is naughty, who is nice, and who ends up getting nothing for Christmas.

Death by Insanity by Tom Lestrade

Dining out can be crazy these days!  
 
Dr. Hayden Nuff, and his wife, Nadia Nuff, are out to celebrate a simple anniversary dinner. Oliver C. Razy, though, one of Dr. Nuff’s many patients at the Institute for the Perpetually Disturbed, is having a crisis which he decides to share with the world… or at least all the rest of Dr. Nuff’s patients! Anne Ziety is passive aggressively trying to “quit” Dr. Nuff for another shrink. Hal Nations shows up with his domineering wife, Lucy Nations, to make Hayden handle his mental meltdown, but a surprised Lucy has another transaction in mind. Hayden’s patients have become so codependent, he is stalked to the restaurant better than Lindsay Lohan’s paparazzi! And Dr. Nuff’s controlling wife, Nadia might just say “enough” to the interruptions, for the last time! Could one of these lithium losers have something lethal in mind?
Determined to keep a cool head about things, Dr. Nuff proceeds with Group Therapy to psychoanalyze each of his patients, and guests at the restaurant, and the Freudian slips come off!

Pay No Attention to the Valentine in the Basement

Ouida Sellzits & Hugh Buyzits are hosting their annual Valentines Dreamhouse Extravaganza.  Could this be the year they actually give the home away, or will it be a dud like so many years before?  Home Inspector Bob Broquette will make sure the house is up to par, but homeowners Marge & Magnus Nificent have a few complaints from the house they won 20 years ago.  Louis Lane, undercover reporter for the Weekly Courier Tribune, is desperate for a journalistic break, & brings his roommate Butch to pose as his "wife" so the "newlyweds" are shopping for that perfect home.

 But the homely couple are in for a surprise when news of a body in the basement of Marge & Magnus home, awarded to them by Ouida & Hugh, reveals some sneaky dealings in the high risk real estate market.  Can Ouida & Hugh slice through the troubles of this cutthroat catastrophe?  Will Magnus keep his plumbing business out of the sewer, when Marge wants to retire?  Can Bob find his true love... after he stops staring at Butch?  And will Louis expose the fraudulent fray of wheeling and dealing that haunts Sellzits & Buyzits success, without exposing his own plagiarized past?
