Santa Claus: OK boys, have we loaded everything?  Elf: Ah, there's still the matter of this Calvin, sir. His list is 30 pages long, not including the supplement about incendiary weapons. The research dept. thought you should handle this personally.  Santa Claus: Well, is he naughty or nice?  Elf: Ah, a bit problematic, chief... Here's his dossier... Santa Claus: Ohhhh yes, the "noodle incident" kid... Elf: That was a while ago, boss. He says he was framed, and we've had trouble verifying the particulars. Accounts seem to vary.  Santa Claus: What about all these slushballs thrown at the girl down the street?  My my my!  Elf: No dispute there. Surveillance documents some 400 incidents, but the kid claims extenuating circumstances.  Santa Claus: Hmmm...don't they all.  Elf: A tiger vouches for the kid's character...Says the kid tries to be sort of good if he's not tempted otherwise.  Santa Claus: What do his parents say?  Elf: Here's the dad's comments. We're looking into the sarcasm factor.  Santa Claus: All right. I've made up my mind. Is the boy asleep yet?  Elf: Ah, no, he's wide awake.  Hobbes: Santa won't come until we're asleep, you know.  Calvin: I can't take the suspense!
