You know, between the travel headaches, family tensions, rampant commercialization, the PC movement, and the anti-PC movement, sometimes you just gotta step back and chuckle and the rediculousness.

‘Santa died for your MasterCard’
Man nails Claus to cross to protest commercialism of Christmas

BREMERTON, Wash. - Art Conrad has an issue with the commercialism of Christmas, and his protest has gone way beyond just shunning the malls or turning off his television.
The Bremerton resident nailed Santa Claus to a 15-foot crucifix in front of his house.
"Santa has been perverted from who he started out to be," Conrad said. "Now he's the person being used by corporations to get us to buy more stuff."
Well, if NORAD didn't get him, Mr. Conrad sure did. Poor bastard.
