A Santa School graduate and instructor threatens to put Marc on the Naughty List, while ML, Shawn and Joe play nice.

STRAIGHT DOPE: Santa Michael shares lessons learned at the Charles W. Howard Santa Claus School, the longest-running Santa School in the world, which is based in Midland.

There are all kinds of Santas – fat, skinny, bearded and clean-shaven. As a “professional Santa for Hire,” Michael gives us the inside dope on what makes a great Santa.

Santa says he uses some yellow dust, which ML says sounds a lot like the white powder some of his classmates at Grosse Pointe South used to consume.

Shawn tries stumping Santa, like some overgrown smart-aleck kid who knows he’s not getting that Red Rider air rifle – again. Does he succeed?

Marc cues up some Christmas tunes that make Santa’s belly shake like a bowl full of jelly. But is it with mirth – or rage?

Now that Shawn is back from furlough, ML takes his turn on unpaid leave, giving him plenty of time to pimp his latest column on the biggest scandal in the statehouse this year and to beg listeners to help prevent layoffs at the Free Press by subscribing using the link at the end of his column. Read it here.

GEEK OF THE WEEK: A royal pain in the arse is this week’s geek.

ROOM 7609: While we’re dreaming of a white Christmas, who better than the man who brought us “White Wedding” to perform a holiday tune? So we welcome Billy Idol into the New Wave suite to perform “Silver Bells.”

FEEDBACK: A listener moved by Shawn’s furlough takes pity on us. Listen and find out how.
