Tonight the Travel Channel will air the annual holiday special episode of Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations. No doubt it will contain all manner of holiday-themed debauchery. However, it won't contain "A Krampus Carol," Bourdain's twisted animated telling of the Alpine folk tale of a creature who punishes naughty children at Christmastime, the sour to Santa's sweet. Thankfully, the short is online, and you can watch it after the jump.

The video is SFW, though it contains some, um, odd imagery. Basically, if your coworkers don't already think you're a freak, this might seal the deal.
