Steven Fonti's "Political Correction" parodies "School House Rock" with a singsongy number that carries political correctness to insane extremes by insisting that white people be referred to as "persons of non-color" and dogs be known as "canine-Americans." A subject that seemed to have been milked for all its humor clearly still has a little juice left.

And speaking of disgusting, the festival really lives up to its "Sick and Twisted" name with Steven Fonti's "Yes, Timmy, There Is A Santa Claus," which presents a gleefully sadistic St. Nick who gets off on bringing worthless and inappropriate gifts to handicapped children.  Missing or empty |title= (help)
