Merry Christmas, listeners! We're squeezing one more Christmas-themed episode in before St. Nick sticks his butt down the chimney and fills your stockings with a whole bunch of coal. It's our very special Christmas Eve episode of They Called This a Movie, decided by our Twitter followers.

We've got Santa and we got Jim Varney donning his famous denim vest, as we watched the classic Ernest film, Ernest Saves Christmas. We discuss how good the Santa Claus is in this movie, how uncomfortable we are with certain scenes, and even start the rumor that Jim Varney invented a sex act. It's the perfect listening for Jesus's birthday.
