"You Smell Like Beef And Cheese. You Don't Smell Like Santa"




I'm sure everyone, in the archives of their holiday pictures, has a Santa shot somewhat like this one. A shot with Santa that just ain't right. And just like a canary in a coal mine, its the little kiddies who are able to detect a foul Santa's immediately. While creepy Santa's may be abound, there are still some poor schmucks who actually enjoy doing the Santa thing despite the bad rap.


This holiday season at Sketchysantas.com you can revel in all the glory of Santa's gone bad.




"What you talkin' about Willis"




Ummm, Santa? That just aint right.


Do all shopping mall Santa's get background checks? One would hope, yet we still continue to put our children on the laps of strangers for that time honored tradition of a picture with the big guy in the red suit. Good times.

Today's Boston Herald reports that a retired mechanic, who's been donning the red suit for 35 years, is not a big fan of sketchysantas.com, "I think it serves no purpose other than to sully the reputation of all Santa's," he says."Just because a kid is crying does not mean he is a bad Santa." "A good Santa invests in a top-of-the-line suit, with much care to the beard and wig, but it also takes someone with very good acting abilities and desires to be Santa, which comes from the heart." Something tells me you have to have a lot of "heart" to withstand this all day.

Good or bad Santa is our go-to-guy at Christmas time. Most of us roll old school when it comes to Santa, so cut the new guy some slack. Maybe he's just trying to make somebody happy.

Lol . . . "you sit on a throne of lies." God, I love that movie.

Ok, question about the first pic . . . why is a woman in her late-20s/early-30s sitting on Santa's lap, when she's clearly not a scantily-clad Jenny McCarthy?

I think that one bothers me as much as the one with Santa holding the little girl's skirt down a tad too obviously.

Our odd situation this Christmas is my 5th grader beginning "family life education" (that's what they call it down here) in school at the same time as she finalizes her "Santa list" . . .

"So, Dad . . . when he comes in at night to put stuff in the stockings, does he move around all the stuff that we've already put in for each other?"

My kid and I went and had our picture taken with Santa a couple weeks ago. Santa was FLIRTY AS ALL HELL with me too. It was hilarious-- until I got the picture back and realized my dress was on a tad crooked and one of my, umm, girls was kinda more visible than she ought to have been.

Now I just think Santa is a perv.

Hey, Santa, you could have TOLD me I was flashing you rather than LET ME POSE FOR A DAMN PICTURE LIKE THAT! Jesus!
