1. I love this. I saw something like this in one of the Comic-Con costume galleries… a grayscale person. This is not Photoshopped, it’s done with makeup and gray clothing (although, for the sake of one photo, it might be easier to use Photoshop to get the effect). See more desaturated Santa pics here.
2. In the Scrooge category, it's been revealed that the Salvation Army has been taking Twilight and Harry Potter toy donations and throwing them in the trash, while giving the OK to guns (such as a plastic M-16). Their PR people are currently scurrying to clarify this, saying that they really don't approve of toy guns. Wizards and vampires are nixed though. Not sure of their policy toward fairies (including Fairy Godmothers, Tooth Fairies, and Tinkerbell), leprechauns, mermaids, Jolly Old Elves named Claus, ghosts of Christmas Past, Good Witch Glenda, or Virgin pregnant ladies.
3. A good response to old Sally Ann might be to stuff her ding-dong cauldron with a farting Santa ornament or Blitzed'n the drunken reindeer.
4. This last one is just cute. Simon's Cat has a new video out called "Santa Claws", and this is not on YouTube or embeddable yet. Click to watch. Yule love it.
