    “Dirty Santa” turns out to be one more gift-trading game:
    http://dirtysantarules.blogspot.com/

    Arlo either covets one of Janis’s presents or he has a more Arloesque idea of what “Dirty Santa” is.

    SELECT * FROM wp_users WHERE ID = '1' LIMIT 1

    My take is that Arlo suggested playing “Dirty Santa” for a little frisky roleplay, but Janis is taking it to be the gift exchange system. So when she suggests “more than two”, it clashes with Arlo’s idea in that Arloesque way.

    To add to Brent’s explanation. Arlo thinks she’s hinting at a threesome.

    My take was the same as Brent’s#2. Certainly if one isn’t familiar with the “Dirty Santa” gift exchange game, this would indeed be a CIDU.

    SELECT * FROM wp_users WHERE ID = '1' LIMIT 1

    This was certainly a CIDU for me. Brent’s response seemed the most logical deduction. I looked up “dirty Santa” on the web and noted it is no different from secret Santa.

    After that, the urban dictionary gives a twist to secret Santa. Here, they define “dirty Santa” as a “gift-giving game whereby participants are able to select a gift from the pool but run the risk of having it stolen if another participant on their subsequent selection turn decides they want it!”

    The site has other, more risque, explanations but they are far too gross and raunchy to repeat here.

    SELECT * FROM wp_users WHERE ID = '1' LIMIT 1

    The odd thing about this strip is that it only works if (a) the reader knows what “Dirty Santa” means and (b) Arlo might reasonably be expected not to know what it means.

    I had not heard of “dirty Santa” until I saw Jimmy Johnson’s Christmas toon. I did not think more of it - save as an obtuse reference - until it was posted here. Then I went looking. Kinda wish I hadn’t as some of the references were…, well, see item 5.

    At least they aren’t playing Dirty Sanchez.

    So Dirty Santa is more or less like a Yankee Swap?

    In my area, it’s called a White Elephant exchange. Sometimes done at a holiday party after Christmas.

    I’ve played it, but never heard it called “Dirty Santa” (which is a little too close to “Dirty Sanchez” for my liking). BTW, I understand why people like the game, but it’s always resulted in some pretty hard feelings when I’ve seen it played, so I wouldn’t do it at one of my parties.

    Makes me wonder what Arlo got Janis that he wants for himself.

    We call the stealing thing Greed. And I think White Elephant is what they call the table where the employees bring unwanted items in hopes someone else will buy them, the money going to charity.

    We also call the gift-giving game White Elephant. It’s kinda crazy but pretty fun. I remember one game that had everybody trying to steal this jar of peanut butter. Never mind the cuter or more functional gifts.

    My wife’s family calls it “Naughty Santa.” (just played it yesterday with 14 people.) We use a modified version of the rules minorannoyance linked, where the gift is retired after the third person possesses it; otherwise the game could go on way too long.

    “Now I know what you’re thinking. Did he give me six presents, or only five?”

    It’s a Yankee Swap around here, except that in our version, each person gets to open the present they picked before deciding if they want to switch with another player. Also, the first person always gets one last swap, so in terms of getting what you want, going first is best, followed by going last, then second-to-last, and so on.
