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.
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.
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.
