Thank Christmas another episode! Great job guys; can’t stop laughing. Every dollar spent on sound effects was totally worth it 🙂
What’s the outro song? It’s super nice.
Yes! I want to listen to the song on repeat at work.
Merry Christmas guys, thanks for all the laughs this year 🙂
Mikey, I see what you’re saying about the million-year delivery time, but there really is a simpler solution:
-Santa Claus is accepted to be the same person as Saint Nicholas, a Catholic saint from the 4th century
-Several Catholic saints are held by Church tradition to have exhibited bilocation – the miraculous ability to be two places at once
-If we’re already assuming (and I think we are, because it’s Christmas) that Santa Claus is over 1600 years old and fueled by Jesus magic, is it really so unreasonable to assume that he can multilocate?
-If he can multilocate, then he is “the one who can be many places at once”
-you may recognize this as the original meaning of Kwisatz Haderach.
Clearly Jeffy has the Shining.
First of all, love the episode and definitely support the decision of purchasing the sound pack.
I wanted to take a moment to thank Mikey for a particular part of Borderlands, namely the inclusion of Gaige. You see, I’m a double amputee (I sent in a question to the Chainsawsuit podcast once about the augmentation of people, not sure if you remember) and I was delighted when I saw two things about Gaige: First, obviously, she’s an amputee. Second, her replacement arm isn’t weaponized or the central aspect of her character, she’s just an amputee making her replacement arm work for her. It might be surprising, but that means a lot, and I just wanted to thank you.
I finished watching the three parts of the Andy Williams special. If “Clockwork Orange” is ever rebooted, this should be used in place of random violence and Ludwig Van Beethoven. Andy and the kids ride a sleigh up to Santa’s house (at least he thinks it is, but he’s not sure, but he’s going in anyway — even though regardless of whose house it is, it still doesn’t belong to Andy, but that’s irrelevant by now. Andy’s already broken a dozen laws, so what’s one more at this point?
Before he goes in, he sings/explains to the kids (what the hell happened to Mindy Cohn?) what they should do when he gives them certain hand signals after he’s gone inside the house. So, now, he’s asking the NBC Kids to aid and abet him on his Christmas crime spree.
He goes inside the house. The door slams shut behind him and Andy switches into voiceover mode. He says he tried the door (he didn’t — personally, I think he was glad for some free time away from the kids), then he wonders where Santa is. He finds presents on a table for “familiar names,” but doesn’t pick them up and then starts to climb some stairs. After going halfway up, he comes back down and the camera switches to another room as he walks through it and into another room on the other side of the house.
Then, just as he’s about to walk out of the room (and maybe try the door again — after all, those wonderful kids have been stranded outside in Finnish winter weather for a few minutes now), he turns around and looks at the camera.
Santa Claus is Bruce Weitz. Sgt. Belker from “Hill Street Blues.”
Apparently, WE’RE Santa Claus…or the Time Magazine Person of the Year for 2006 is…or Rupert Holmes after his pina-colada-lovin’ wife recognizes him. Nothing surprises me anymore after this…ever. He sings to the camera, then there’s an odd break in the video (maybe the person who has the missing 18 minutes from the Watergate tapes also knows who Santa Claus was in this show), then he leaves the house and then we see him in the same place as he was in the beginning of the show.
The NBC Kids never get to see Santa. In fact, we never see the NBC Kids again. He thanks the people of Finland — my guess is it’s because America won’t allow extradition by American citizens to Finnish prisons — and that’s it.
I’m never watching one of those again. Ever.
10 points for White Rabbit with the mother.
I’m dying to see a special named “Alf’s Christmas @#$%^&* Miracle.”
For me, the most annoying song from a Christmas special has to be from “Mr. Magoo’s Christmas Carol,” a song called “Back on Broadway and Sh*t.” So annoying and has nothing to do with Christmas.
Great podcast, guys!
Family Circus needed to be 20 mins longer at least. The pacing in this movie is garbage.
Are these podcasts available anywhere? I’m so sad that I didn’t save my downloads of them.
