I got to 'stuns' and thought one of them had finally snapped and started tasering kids.

Sure, but can he fly an airplane solo across the Pacific?

Insert obligatory link to my buddy Dave who is a sign language interpreter, and bears a striking resemblance to Santa.

Around the Rochester Institute of Technology, he's just called Santa most of the time, or "The Santa Claus Interpreter"

That's what he spends his Decembers doing... going around and being a signing Santa.

Some men came to the homeless shelter and offered me a tub of Crisco if I would wear this costume. They injected a paralytic agent into my spinal cord and propped me up in this chair and had kids fart on my knees. Kill me. I'm begging you. Please. KILL ME.

Ya, judging by what I saw in the mall today that would have been my bet too.

I thought this story was so sweet that I just shared it with my brother's kids.

Now my sister-in-law is trying to explain the concept that "Mall Santas are just helpers" to my crying 6 year old nephew.

Whoops.

I need to drink more.

Or less maybe.

My 3-year-old nephew goes to daycare in French, which he understands but doesn't speak that well (his parents lived in the US until he was 2 before moving back to Québec.) When Père Noël visited the daycare, my nephew asked if he spoke English. He answered that Santa speaks all languages. I guess he was right.

CSB:
Volunteered to be a Santa for the UW one year.
They didn't tell me
a) All the kids were deaf.
b) All they had to gvie them was over ripe bananas.
c) How to say anything in ASL.

/Learned a lot since then

At first, I misread the headline as "shuns" and I was all like, "that Santa is a dick!"
 
2012-12-25 01:08:13 AM
Just remembering the reason for the season. As I recall, God purposely made it difficult for mankind to communicate with one another. Also, the tyke probably shouldn't be allowed in church.

/I don't make the rules
//Merry Christmas!

it is like the rosetta stone commercials, but with a deaf kid and a santa that knew sign language.

sign language santa, you are a great person. i don't know why you learned sign language, but you are awesome.

that story is full of awesome.

Electrode: I usually stun 3-year-olds with a Taser.


I use standing water and a a pile of lithium ion batteries. I haven't gotten the hang of using 110V outlets without the lethal aspect yet.

vudukungfu: b) All they had to gvie them was over ripe bananas.


If that is still the case and they need some toys, let us know. I'm pretty sure we could solve that problem.

Yes yes yes, but does he speak African American Sign Language? Because if he doesn't he's one jive Santa.
 
2012-12-25 01:14:13 AM
It's just so sad that happy stories have to be news.

I read it that way too. Why would a signing Santa shun a deaf kid?

Because it's been so long since the last time some hearing idiot made an audist all-caps headline in response to a Deaf-related story.

My sons' mom took the boys to this same Bass store just last week. She reports that Santa was excellent to the boys; I wonder if it was the same guy. i wouldn't be surprised if it was.

/Good on you, jollyman

I added Vodka to Non alcoholic beer tonight, essentially turning water into wine, like some kind of American Jesus. I was feeling pretty good about myself, thinking I was a pretty great guy. Then I open Fark so I can have a laugh about how stupid the plebs are and next thing you know, I'm shuffling off to bed thinking that I just don't do enough.
