"What do you think of that, Santa?" Yet another case of student 'art projects' out of control . . . other incredible violations of mall-Santa lap etiquette:1, 2, 3, and no doubt the most flagrant example, 4. Be careful out there.

Dear Santa, all I want for Christmas this year is OH MY FUCKING GOD WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING?

Oh, it's your penis. Gee, the North Pole really is cold, isn't it?

Westwood said he and companions had waited for a girl about 15 years old to finish sitting on Santa's lap

Wait - was this a mall or a strip club?

The guy's name is actually Clint Westwood?

He might have been almost cool because his name is so close to Clint Eastwood. Instead, because of this lame ass stunt, he is the opposite of cool, as West is to East.

Did he have a long, pretentious artist's statement to go with this stunt?

I'm so sick of all these Ali-G knock offs. Awkward, uncomfortable and inappropriate humor only works when it's.... what's the word?

Right. FUNNY. Ha-ha funny. This is neither kind.

I hope he adds this to his "reel", and get's laughed out of every art school he applies to. The bad kind of laughing.

What do you think of that, Santa?

I woulda gone with ""Kenneth, what is the frequency?" Now that's art.

Ah yes, The Staten Island Mall. I spent many a terrified childhood hour there trying to evade the children of local mafiosos.

I especially like how a casual Santa is "inappropriate." Not unwanted, or unexpected, but inappropriate.

> He said that after the pie ruckus, he expected to approach Santa for a signature on a film-release form, but police arrived first.

Take a tip from Sascha Baron Cohen's handlers: Folks are generally more willing to sign away their rights before they know what you'll do to them.

But besides that, I can't see the humor in humiliating workaday schmoes who haven't done anything to deserve it. The Ali G. Show mostly enrages me.

If they use that film clip without obtaining a release, they'll learn even more about the legal system.

We don't get any explanation of that? Because I, for one, am distinctly curious.

"How would you explain Santa going around dropping his pants? How would you explain that to [children]?"

Children, I have an interesting chainletter to show you, regarding the forces involved in a human body crisscrossing the world at mach 612

I think I'd like to see that story in colouring-book format, starring a friendly bear.

[Making mental note never to take the kids to sit on Santa's lap again.]

I sat on Santa's lap when I was in high school and never thought twice about it. Until today.

I prefer this as video Santa humor.

In the category of inappropriate Sint-a-Klaas (one more night of putting carrots in your shoe) debiteuren crediteuren (a 1995 precursor to The Office. Try to catch the very effective mix of Sinterklaas' moralistic patronizing tone of voice and innuendo although it's in Dutch(!).

Apparently there are some department stores that are instructing their Santas to say "Ha ha ha!" instead of "Ho ho ho!" this year.
