12/09/2006:"Tough Times For Santa"
Sometimes I'm glad I don't have kids. I'm no prude, but I really wouldn't want my kids seeing stuff like this, and have no idea how parents deal with it. Anyway, I was trying to think of a clever phrase to link to an article about the Canadian artist that crucified Santa as a statement about excess (something involving "Santa Cruz" or something), but Metro.co.uk "nailed" it: Crucified Santa Makes Some Cross. Elsewhere, Santa stars in a claymation video about a tragic love triangle involving reindeer, elves, and saviours, all set to a parodied R Kelly tune. See Trapped in the CLAUSet parts I, II, and III (YouTube links). Sample lyric: "I said 'ho', I said 'ho', and then 'ho'. Cuz that's what you say when you're Santa, you say 'ho' three times in a row".
