christmas cheer

This isn't a happy story, but it's different enough that I found it interesting...

A friend of mine went to a big Xmas pageant. Santa came out and was jitterbugging around with girls onstage, then made his way down the aisle in the middle of the audience, whereupon he had a massive heart attack and died, with his lapel mic picking up his last labored breaths.

My friend said it was the most surreal thing he'd ever seen. I think most of the audience probably converted to Buddhism to shield their children from further pageants.

There might be a lesson in there somewhere, but I doubt it.
Happy Holidays.

That's horrible!! That'd put a bit of a damper on the ole holiday spirit. Poor guy, poor everyone who was there.

what a terrible story. it could, in a weird correlation, be an addendum to your previous belief-in-santa post.

I guess there's worse ways to go other than jitterbugging with girls.
