The first lump of coal goes to the mall owners in Australia who, bowing to political correctness, have banned pseudo Santas from displaying such terrible behaviour such as:
- Handing out of candy (children shouldn’t accept gifts from “strange” men)
- Patting children on the head (because of religious beliefs??)
- Letting children sit on their laps without parental approval
- Posing for pictures with the kids without both their hands being visible
- Saying “HO HO HO” (scares the kids)
No wonder they’re having trouble finding enough men to play the jolly fat man.
