Patient, virtuous AND discreet?!? I'll get the paperwork started on your sainthood.

(ed note: one of the examples of St Nicholas' sanithood was smacking somebody during the Council of Nicea. This was held as proof of his sainthood because the Emperor Constantine did not have him executed for committing a violent act in the emperor's presence. The petty detail that Constantine agreed with Nicholas had nothing to do with it. Really.)
