The Baltar Who Stole Christmas

From the Spooky Juxtaposition Department…

In Battlestar Galactica (1978), toward the end of The Living Legend, Part 1, Baltar gloats:

Yes… yes! Think of the impression upon the city of Gomorray when they learn that I, personally, led the final assault on Christmas! I mean, the humans!

Yes, okay, I embellished that a bit (though not much). Seriously, now; go check this out on Hulu while the episode is still available. The resemblance is uncanny, isn’t it? It’s like John Colicos studied the Grinch. Freaky.

With apologies to Dr. Seuss, without whom the lives of young children everywhere would be much more standard.
