Does it say more about me or more about the world today that I'm a little shocked the story didn't end with one of the parents threatening a lawsuit?

Here's an idea: stop lying to your kids about some old guy who lives at the North Pole and flies around the world giving gifts on Christmas.

I never understood the perverse pleasure people get out of bs'ing their offspring about this fairy tale nonsense.

I love the part where the three Chinese guys bring perfume to the Star Baby.

It's like Harry Potter, but it makes you commit genocide.

I think it's waaaaay to early to dismiss the idea that the parents won't be filing a lawsuit.

Had they waited another 20 minutes, they would have caught the Molar Express. It is full of deformed men in white robes and bottlecap glasses. It lopes and steams with the grace of a Safeway shopping cart and all extractions are 20% off.

I picture you driving around the mall parking lots, with a big sign on the top of your car that says "Satan Claus is the Devil!", and screaming at all the children.

Really? That's a lot of hate for the crowd. The parents paid money to entertain and amuse their kids, and the organization didn't fulfill its end of the bargain, and for no apparent reason at that. I say they're right to be pissed.

"The kids were heartbroken, as if someone had taken Christmas morning away from them."

Yup, Christmas morning was taken away from them- TWO WEEKS BEFORE CHRISTMAS MORNING!

Santa is perfectly capable of making children cry without the help of rank amateurs, thank you.

Every time a child cries, an angel gets the day off.

You can't hug a child with nuclear arms.

If that's all it takes for your kid's Christmas to be ruined, you're a complete failure as a parent.

Wow. Sounds like someone had their childhood robbed from them at an early age.
 
2009-12-14 11:31:31 AM  
I don't understand why they are blaming the conductor. It sounds like this was the regularly scheduled train, and the Polar Express train was supposed to be about ten minutes behind it.

The fact that the PE train never showed up is hardly the fault of the conductor of the train that happened to pass through the station when the kids were already assembled.

Fine, laugh and make fun of Santa. He's a lovable guy not into violence. But I would keep my mouth shut about the Easter Bunny. He takes no shiat off anyone. Would you if you had to poop eggs?farker is the most vile nasty rodent you ever saw.

Well, children don't usually have money to spend on gifts, and are generally terrible at making things. So having a mysterious fat dude who gives children gifts who only asks for cookies and milk/beer in return saves parents from having to put up another terrible drawing on the refrigerator for everyone to see.

I think the whole santa gig was invented as a capitalist consumerism move. A whole holiday where its just not right unless you buy stuff for people. It is engrained into your psychie from the earliest ages- make a list of stuff you WANT. Its an indoctrinization, like organized religeon.... Funny how they made a multipurpose gig out of a single holiday... Almost like a conspiracy....
 
2009-12-14 11:33:49 AM  
I'm guessing that on the last two rides, some kid repeatedly kicked the conductor and other kids wouldn't stop crying and shouting. This conductor finally had enough and took it out on the next batch of kids instead of walking off the job.

Yeah, because anyone not on board with your little fantasy is absolutely consumed with a fiery passion for debunking it.

Actually, I don't give a shiat. My kids will have great Christmases and they will know where their gifts came from, as I will know if they were naughty or nice. No middleman required.
