In this case, Santa is being played by alert reader Andy W., who unearthed a gem that evidently originated on an Australian TV special. In any case, it's a great three-minute alternative to the longish hobbity madness of one of history's most revered and reviled songs.
Without further ado: ladies and gentlemen, THE BEATNIX!

An original KITT -- the talking car that helped David Hasselhoff escape bad guys on the '80s TV series "Knight Rider" -- is up for sale on eBay.
The black 1984 Pontiac Trans Am is being sold to satisfy the debts of a slain real estate developer, whose killing last year is unsolved. Boats, cars and other items owned by car aficionado Andrew Kissel already have been sold after creditors claimed he owed $30 million.
One bid -- for the $20,000 minimum -- had been posted on eBay as of Thursday.
"I'm a little surprised because it is a unique car," said attorney Patrick R. Gil, administrator of Kissel's estate. "My understanding is that there were only four of them made specifically for the television series. I expected some 'Knight Rider' lovers to jump on it."

My latest issue of Guitar Player turned me on to this guy, who takes videos of famous people wailing away on guitar, and overdubs crappy playing that kinda matches the finger movements. It's available in Santana, Vai, Iron Maiden and other flavors - all of which make me giggle like a wee girl.
No one who isn't a musician has laughed as hard as me when I showed them, so I might as well take a poll:
(a) Are you a musician?
(b) Is this really, really funny?
