Belsnickel made an appearance in Season 9 of The Office, where Dwight Schrute dressed the part and whipped co-worker Jim. It’s funnier than we described, we swear.
Anyway, Belsnickel is an impatient dick who dresses like a hobo who just skinned a woolly mammoth. Because of this, we’re guessing he’s also a virgin. His gimmick: He knocks on houses and demands that children answer a question or sing a song. He’ll then toss them candies, but they better not jump for them too fast lest they yearn for the business end of his switch.
