Scared for Santa!

We’ve gotten tons of submissions for our Scared of Santa photo galleries. It looks like Santa scares children the world over, but I’m starting to worry about the big guy. The kids aren’t the only ones who look freaked out.

Yesterday a poor New Jersey Santa was maimed by a feral cat – a feral bobcat, it turns out – while posing for pictures at a PetSmart. The cat’s owner ducked out, presumably out of shame and fear of arrest, before the cat’s records could be had, and now poor Santa is getting rabies shots for Christmas. Will he still be able to deliver presents?!

He deserves double cookies this year, I think.
