Hilarious front-page story today in
The Onion 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 â€“ 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.
