He accepts anything from abstract things like your nightmares. He may take "best regards", to fine wines, to parts of your reputation. He may take ''you''...body...or even ''you'', if you're foolish enough or don't have anything else to offer. But something of yours WILL end up in his sack. And unlike Santa, he doesn't just appear on the Christmas eve. No, Mr. Sacks visits you on each of the twelve days before Christmas. And he expects a gift with each visit.

Early on the Christmas broadcast, Heenan went along in the Christmas spirit, as Prime Time host Gorilla Monsoon (at the desk) and Piper (in an auxiliary studio) encouraged him. Eventually, Heenan grew tired of having to play nice and began to openly insult and mock the tradition of Christmas and Santa Claus, all this while dressed as Santa.
