" 26.12. (Teatteri/DCP) Voisitko rakastua miimikkoon? Miimikko revittää peräaukkoaan. Kolmituntisen filmin lopussa miimikon lapsen äiti rukoilee miimikkoa jäämään tämän luokse. Miimikko juoksee kuitenkin toisen muijan perään, mutta pettävät jäät ajelehtivat tämän ulottuvilta ihmismassain pimentoon. Miimikko jää yksin kadulle tuijottamaan vankkureita ja vekkuleita. Tarvitsen lomaa."
