You guys, we need to have a chat. Today, I would like to discuss why, as a culture, we’re OK with Santa Clause.
I’m not talking about good ol’ Saint Nick, the guy that sneaks down chimneys at night to leave gifts under a tree in the living room, although that in itself probably deserves some discussion. I’m talking about Santa photos.
It’s this guy somebody hires, and his name is probably Dave or Gary or something, and he puts on a beard and a crazy red hat.
And my MomFOD paid him ten dollars to put our dog in his lap.
Why? Why is this ok?
If we didn’t know who “Santa Clause” was, and it was like Bob the guy on the corner, do you think people would be lining up and giving this guy ten bucks to put their dogs and children in his lap? Do you?
People are strange.
