Sketchy Santas

Well, I’m sure many children have been traumatized at one time or another by a visit to Santa where a photo was snapped of them to commemorate the occasion.  The expectation was that they would gleefully clamber onto Santa’s lap and whisper in a delightful lisp what they wanted for Christmas. 

It’s supposed to be a happy time for kids, but more often than not, it doesn’t quite work out that way.  Now there’s a website, Sketchy Santas, where you can submit your own photos of the horror. 

Some Santas are downright creepy and some are just trying to make the best of a bad situation–i.e., the little darlings writhing and screaming in abject terror while the jolly old elf is just tryin’ to make a frickin’ living. 

At any rate, it’s worth a visit.  It’ll help remind you of those holiday trips home to the bosom of your family—with loud, alcoholic uncles and demented aunts who insist on cleaning your face with spit on their hankies. 

                 And to all a good-night!
