"BFE is a Brigadoon-type place where no strangers have ever been, and you cross it by accident," Shirley explains. "They don't know anything about Christmas. They've never heard of it. But then a stranger happens upon the town, and he teaches them about the holiday." Instead of being grateful, however, the townspeople turn on their guest, and what ensues is much singing, dancing and hilarity because as Shirley points out, "What's funnier than people starting to dance all of a sudden?" Well, not much, Dave. Not much.
