‘Santa Got a DWI’
Country rocker Sherwin Linton scored a minor hit with this 1986 ditty about Santa’s being busted in his sleigh with “a miniature bottle of Peppermint Schnapps” after being spotted “weaving around in the sky.” His sleigh is impounded, the reindeer are sent to a zoo and Christmas in general seems to be canceled for the foreseeable future. Linton adds a twist in the last verse with a PSA about drunk driving, but by that time the Christmas cheer has already been sucked from the room. —Jeff Royer
