Here's some Christmas good news and bad news for all you Food Network fans out there.

The bad news first: Sandra Lee has yet to release another nugget of holiday gold as awesome as her Kwanzaa cake tutorial.

Now for the good news: Guy Fieri has a Christmas special!

Well, not really. But Saturday Night Live's Bobby Moynihan's Guy Fieri is back with an awesome take on the holidays that's got to be seen to be believed.

In this hilarious SNL sketch, Christmas comes to Flavortown, and the loud flame-wearing bleach-blond mayor hosts a delightful holiday special in which Kid Rock brings a Bud Lime gazpacho to dinner.

Speaking of dinner, wouldn't you love to sit at the table with Fieri's human equivalent to the food he makes -- Criss Angel, Kimbo Slice, Verne Troyer, Bret Michaels (who, by the way, is "90 percent plastic, 10 percent HPV"), and Mimi from the Drew Carey Show?

And that's not all!

Every holiday special needs a few musical numbers, and this is no exception. We especially love the energetic song stylings of Dog the Bounty Hunter and Big Ang from Mob Wives as they take on the classic I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus.

Now we know what to ask Santa for. Forget the pony and the Le Creuset Dutch oven -- we want this fictional Guy Fieri Full Throttle Christmas Special to be real!
