Bad Santa.

Blog readers, I have missed you (all five of you).

I can’t think of a better time to jump back into posting to Special Collections than Christmas time…because it is time to make fun of Santa.

Case in point:

There are several problems with this Santa:
a) Santa’s beard lacks the requisite Santa beard fluffiness
b) Santa is sitting too close to the child.  Maybe back when they took this photo Santa was actually allowed to let a child sit on his lap.  Are we even allowed to do that anymore?  If we do, it’s highly inappropriate.
c) Facial expression. I don’t even know what to say.  Way creepy.

You may be troubled to know that this bad Santa thing is not an isolated incident.

Exhibit B:
Ok.  I found both of these photos without even trying.  Can you imagine what I might find if I made an effort? I shudder at the thought.

The point here is that there are lots of bad Santas out there (including the Santa that gave me a DESK LAMP for Christmas one year…thanks for nothing).  I encourage you to call out these bad Santas, and, if nothing else, help them properly adjust their beards.
