Shoot a Santa for Christmas.
Posted by Big John on November 30, 2011
Many years ago when I used to take my daughter to see Father Christmas, I was always a little embarrassed when she would ask for a boy’s toy, for she was not big on dolls and the like, so she usually walked away with a toy pistol or rifle. I was reminded of this when I read this “Only in America” story.
I also read that, in this country, if anyone wants a job as a Santa in a store or mall this Christmas they will have to be vetted in case they have a record for child molesting. Well I can’t see them including it on their ’CV’ can you ?
OK, I know that paedophilia is a serious subject, but I have to smile a little when I see it reported that children can no longer sit on Santa’s knee just in case some pervert has slipped through the security net, and is intent on doing a bit of groping in the grotto.
Personally I think that ‘nonces’ should be recruited as Santas, and then be packed off to Arizona, where I’m sure the parents at Scottsdale’s gun club could use a few live moving targets.
Blimey! No wonder the bloke in the red suit and long white beard in the gun club photos…
… is looking so nervous !
