If Santa knows if you've been bad or good, but only the Shadow knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men, then it naturally follows that they are the same person.

A guy who has been sneaking around at midnight for a millenia surely knows a thing or two about stealth, and a red and white or even green puffy coat accompanied by sleigh bells isn't stealthy. These are just what he wears for public appearances, obviously. The real suit is covered in years of soot and kept that way, in order to increase its absorbtivity and keep the guy warm and hidden. He is a master of thermodynamics, after all.

But the years of climbing down chimneys have taken their toll, and Santa is not as thin as he used to be. So we present a remedy: Santa' vanta suit. Ultra low reflectivity ensures he can't be tracked, at least on foot. We'll be looking at improvements to the sleigh, soon, as well. Take that, NORAD.

       Ooooh, goody. We want to see that ... or rather, not.

       You've failed to make the nice list for the third year straight. The Emperor is most displeased with your apparent lack of progress, and is far less forgiving than I am. Perhaps I can find new ways to motivate you!

       That's a relief. (It was beginning to bug me.

       This is one for the paint, the bubble or toffee just will pack on more girth. Although the Vantabubble might also have laminar flow characteristics giving the sleigh more slide.

       [MaxwellBuchanan]; nicely done.)
