Santa Claus was a bast*rd.

In a small town of Britanny, Pontivy, a Santa who was in the streets received several complaints on Facebook : «This Santa Claus is mean with the children and the parents. He told inappropriate and pervert comments, saying in particular that he wanted to kiss a mother.» «Christmas is sacred ! It is wrong to have children crying when they come back at home !» «This Santa said to my 5 y.o. niece to go suck an egg.» «He refused to hug a little girl, but said her that he would hug her mother, and more if she was agreeing», etc When it comes to identify the guilty Santa, it is more difficult, as there were at least 2 Santa in the streets, from 2 different associations of shopkeepers, and if you ask them their Santa is an experienced Santa that cannot have acted like this and is beyond any doubt. Then came on a FB video the paranoid theory : there was a third Santa in the streets, a bast*rd coming there just to make children cry and harass their mothers. After all, we have already seen this with clowns. The town, in a media release, said that «being a Santa Claus is not always an easy task» and finally the two associations apologized «if the humor of their Santa Claus had not been always understood by the children and their parents.» All this tempest in a tea pot made me laugh. It is true that walking in the streets all the day under a heavy disguise is not easy, and you cannot ask to Santa Claus to be always politically correct.

I always had my suspicions about Santa. What kind of guy sneaks into children's bedrooms overnight?

Thinking at it, Santa Claus is not politically correct.

Those Santa surely had enough to hear the kids asking questions and it is very possible that they BOTH were not politically correct.

One tends to act according to the outfit one is wearing especially if one gets paid for doing so. The guy who broke the rule in this case, doesn't sound to be a nice person. (There are certain rules when ones could break or should break. This is NOT it! Guess I am a bit of a fanatic when the matter touched/affected children and/or women in general!)

Yes you are a fanatic. You do not imagine the pligh of a Santa Claus in a street. Maybe is it because I do not like children that much, but I feel a lot of empathy for these poor Santa Claus in the streets of Pontivy.

@topffer There you are, perhaps because I have no clue what is special about the streets of Pontivy? (Perhaps I should go check that place out on youtube. Youtube seems to have everything anything these days!) Hang on, since you are here, tell us then, what is special about Pontivy?

@YrNemo Nothing except a nice looking castle. It could have been different : Napoleon had the idea to put the capital of Britanny in Pontivy, and it has been called "Napoléonville". The reason are that it was exactly at the center of Britanny and was not a royalist town. He sent architects to rebuild the town with large streets and squares worth of a capital city, but the idea ended with him, and Pontivy has only 13 965 inhabitants today.

Shame on that Santa and if someone over here caught him, he would be in big trouble from the parents or possibly anyone who saw that.

Another American told me the same. French are more tolerant when Santa is fed up by his job. You would not hit Santa Claus in front of your children ?

@topffer Hit Santa in public and then get arrested? Only if he were harming someone and I saw it. Then my husband would have to bail me out. And hopefully my bosses, who are attorneys, would defend me! I don't like violence but if someone were being harassed then there is no choice really. I can't stand by if a pervert was doing something to someone.

Probably not. It is a small town with only a few shopping streets, and the two Santas were close to each other.

You just know that Santa would never survive here - there'd be an angry attack on him by offended folks who will take him out faster than his next ho ho ho! But let's think about this - perhaps Santa is misunderstood - even he can't possibly be happy and jolly (nor politically correct) all the time !

I was thinking that California was a very tolerant area inside USA? This kind of humor is not appropriate when it comes to young children, but in the good tradition of Charlie Hebdo/Hara Kiri humor. Just for you the cover of Hara Kiri for December 1973, with Santa saying "Wake up, it is Christmas !"

@topffer Well, we may be more tolerant of certain things, but depends on the time, the place, the persons, the situation of course. At the same time we are not tolerant of many things. It is funny, but it probably wouldn't sit right with the big mama and papa bears out there - their bear claws would come out! Oh this cover is hilarious . . . but so is the name of the magazine !
