Thanks for destroying my faith in the generosity of my dear old Mom and Dad. Turns out it was that creepy fat guy all along.

Still pretty funny.

The Federal Government -- and a Democratic Judge -- already declared that Santa Claus is real.

I'm glad to hear that Big Foot, Sasquatch and the Loch Ness Monster are just a bunch of Hooey, though. I was getting worried that I'd never seen one.

Does anyone know about the Jersey Devil?

I wish he didn't enable comments on the page... people have pissed all over it. A shame.

Actually, Miroslav Satan plays for the Buffalo Sabres.
If you're asking about the uniform he signed, it'll cost you $475US.

This guy did a nice thorough debunking in the comments: (heh)
Message: Hmm, a simple Whois search reveales (sic) a lot: http://www.whois.net/whois.cgi2?d=terd.org First of this site is registered to a Mark Hatch who isn't mentioned once on this site. It is also registered to an organisation called Somic Pictures. Then we have the movie. the quality of the movie iw (sic) way too good for anything recorded 55 years ago. Those cameras were heavy and slow, and there is no way they could have recorded souch (sic) a detailed movie, definetly (sic) not when moving around so much. The papyrus is obviously edited in photoshop. In all egyptian art all the characters are outlined and got lots of details, but the santa is only a red and white smudge.

Deadly serious, or deadly satire within parody? I love the internet-- it's so ambiguous.

Some Christian group rented a billboard by one of our major highways and put up the following message:
SANTA CLAUS IS NOT REAL. ANYONE WHO TELLS YOU HE IS IS LYING.

Thanks, guys!

Wheras, in contrast, God you should believe in because it makes you feel good and your elders tell you.
