    Questions: How many elves get tortured? 2ndly, is Rudolph taken out by a Hellfire missile fired from a drone? 3rd, how many CIA operatives get taken out by a suicide sleigh bomber?

    Christmas was an inside job! Roofs of most houses can’t take the weight of eight fully grown reindeer! Santa looks different in photos taken at different malls!

    I believe one of the scenes in this funny you tube video were taken from the Hallmark Channel movie The Santa Incident, which stared Ion Skye, and is about Santa accidentally being shot down by a military jet (a year or two back, the film was part of their Christmas Countdown with 2 new holiday themed weekend films leading up to Christmas, and yes…I admit that a guilty pleasure of mine is watching the films that countdown to Christmas on channels like Hallmark, Lifetime, Ion, etc.).

    To get my man card back, Die Hard is my favorite film of all time (I believe I have brought this up before on this site, but yeah…not just my favorite action film, but my Citizen Kane, it goes to the top of my all time favorite films list).
