Mediabistro has a disturbing tradition of "Merry Christmas" video-postcards. This year, Laurel plays Santa and if you have the stomach, watch the whole thing here. As our Christmas gift, we've got an almost-bearable 15-second clip.

The whole thing is worse than an under-rehearsed church Nativity play. One of the people to hop on Laurel's lap is the CEO of Jupiter Networks, which as a company today sports a market cap of $17 million, well under the $23 million they paid to buy the freelancer-helping website in 2007. We don't think he's joking about what he'd really like from Laurel.
