Synopsis:
Hornsby gruffly entered the Mayor's office and nearly threatened the Mayor to get the road contract he was after, but Mayor Applegate told him the City Council would vote on that tomorrow at the regular meeting. But Hornsby had an ace up his sleeve....he had a document that proved the Mayor had gotten a kickback on the sale of land the new school was being built on. The next day at the meeting, the council members did a little double-dealing of their own. Since the new road would go through much of Hornsby's property, another member demanded the new road also go through his town cemetery, or he wouldn't vote "yes" on the proposal. Agreeing to this, the council gave Hornsby his road, and the next day, bodies in the cemetery were supposed to be exhumed and moved to another part of the cemetery....but Hornsby and the cemetery owner did some under-handed dealing.....the bodies would stay where they were, and only the monuments and headstones would be relocated....no one being the wiser! Soon the new road was done and the council members all loaded into a car and took a drive on it. However, when they got to the cemetery, they suddenly saw a hand emerge through the concrete......and then bodies began rising up and walking toward the now over-turned car. The next morning, state troopers discovered the empty car, with the area all around the car neatly paved. And as they looked more closely, they discovered the bodies of the council neatly inset into the road's fresh new pavement!

Synopsis:
The little boy celebrated the best Christmas he ever had because he could now see! Born blind, all he ever knew was the love of his mother, and the companionship of his teddy bear. One day, however, his mom introduced the little boy to his new step-dad.....a man who made fun of the little boy and mis-treated his mother. He always said that the little boy had "shoe-button" eyes, just like his teddy. One day, the little boy's mother became deathly ill from over-work, and he asked his step-dad to help her. He abused her and took the boy's bear and ripped the eyes off of it. Later he asked his mom of she'd think Santa would bring him a new pair of eyes for the bear, and the mother, in spite of her condition, went out and got new buttons and sewed them on for the child. When the step-dad later found the woman dead, he cursed her still form and slapped the little boy around, knocking him unconscious. Early Christmas morning, neighbors heard screams coming from the house, and when they entered, they found the dead form of the step-dad w/his eyes replaced by buttons and the bear sitting near-by, button eyes missing....and smiling. The little boy? Well, he could now see......from a special place up in heaven!

They fill it with water and attach a teeter to the rim with some food attached to the end of it so that when a rat attempts to get it, it falls into the water and swims to the platform. When another rat approaches and falls into the drink, they bet on which rat will survive the bloody struggle for the platform. Later, when their ship sinks, two find out that humans are not much different from rats!
