Won’t somebody please think about the Santas!?

Hilarious front-page story today in The Onion The Bee about the H1N1 virus and its effect on mall Santas: Mall Santas say H1N1 flu risks warrant early vaccinations

Santas everywhere are saying they should be first in line to get the H1N1 vaccine – even though many don’t fit the priority groups getting the shots.

The story, by the Bee’s Anna Tong, goes on to quote several national mall Santa organizations (there are several!) who are lobbying to get mall Santas their shots.

For the record, I am not looking to spin this as a story about government-run healthcare. To me this is a just a simple story about mall Santas wanting to steal important vaccines away from babies.

  1. Oh my gosh this article is hilarious. It actually suggests telling your kids that they can’t get Santa sick because if they do he won’t be able to deliver toys. And that they be told, “in a jolly way,” to use hand sanitizer.
