We open our Christmas show by wondering why Sarah Palin killed Rudolph.

Doug's Christmas present for Planet Japan is a shiny new Blue Yeti microphone. Now everyone can hear our musings in even more dulcet tones!

Doug interviews Misaki, his favorite and smartest student!

The big International Pole Dancing championship was held recently in Tokyo, with organizers dreaming of making pole dancing an Olympic event!

Our Dick of the Week is a Spanish woman who has claimed ownership of the sun, and has a plan to charge people for using it. Good luck with that.

We chat with some of the fine folks who attended the big Meet-Up in Kobe (and find out a shocking secret about Jen)! Check out their awesome sites:

We ponder some pithy quotes from the inimitable Steven Wright.

Check out this cool video of a Christmas concert from the North Point iBand. They don't need no stinkin' instruments!

We close out the show with some not-so-traditional Christmas music. It's a song called "I'd Rather Be Naughty," and it's from a musical comedy called "A Don't Hug Me Christmas Carol" - and it's courtesy of Music Alley.

That's it for now! Thanks for listening and Happy Holidays!
