Dagnabbit, I'm sick YET AGAIN. I tell ya, whenever Mighty Mite catches the latest bug going around, I catch it, too -- but whereas it takes her only two days to recover, it seems to take me about two MONTHS. It's not fair, I tells ya!
Well, enough whining. It's time for me to get into the spirit of the holidays, and what better way to do that than to watch super-heroes make idiots of themselves. Let's begin by dropping in on what Superman is up to, shall we? It seems that some kid named Tyrone wrote a letter to the Daily Planet asking if Santa Claus is just for babies. Well, Superman decides he's going to show Tyrone that Santa is cool -- by playing Santa himself.
Awwwww ... You know, Superman is just so cute sometimes. PATHETIC, but cute. What do YOU think, Batman?
Oh, geez, Batman, quit being such a grouch. Ah, but the big jerk can't help it, can he? Not only that, he starts pouring all of his criticism and angst on Superman, telling Supes how he has standards to uphold, blah, blah, blah ...
... and how Supes looks SO STUPID decked out as Santa ...
Poor ol' Superman succumbs to Batman's browbeating. He grudgingly admits that he feels a bit silly, and he gives up the idea of playing Santa. Once Superman leaves Batman and discards his Santa gear, though, he can't resist flying by Tyrone's house and peeking in with his x-ray vision, just to make sure things are okay. And what should he see ...!
BAT-Santa?!?! Why, that -- that -- THAT--!!!
Yeah! GETTIM, Supes! Lousy hypocritical ol' bat-brained so-and-so ...!
