The First Lady received a Mr. T doll, and Mr. T got a peck on the forehead. "Oh wow, man," San-T Claus joked. "That'll start some scandal."


Truer words were never spoken.

/ I love the comments from TFA about Mr T adorning his next with bling icons from various conflicting religions.  I had to consult GIS, but I think that's pretty much the standard set of bling he always wears.

If this happened today, the New York Post would front cover a story about Michelle Obama flirting with Mr T. and the story inside would have a bunch of pictures of a scowling, disapproving Barack.

The only problem with Mr. T as Santa Claus is that every Christmas Eve he refuses to get on the sleigh, folding his arms and saying, "you aint gettin me in no sleigh, Nancy Reagan!"

So Nancy Reagan has to put roofies in his eggnog to knock him out before he'll get in the sleigh.

1) that story would work because Michelle would have had a shot at Mr. T. Nanny never had a prayer
2) The President would just laugh it off. You see he has a sense of humor. Michelle does not.

Funny, I have horrible memories of Sonic the Hedgehog. See, Xmas when I was in 5th grade was pivitol because with the introduction of two new gaming systems, kids in my neighborhood were all making the big decision...Nintendo or Sega? In the weeks before Xmas that year I had the opportunity to play Joe Montana Football with the kid of my mom's co-worker and I liked it so much i made my decision right there. We were gonna be a Sega Genesis household.

Fast-forward to the week after Xmas when I get to school and everyone starts rattling off what they got for Xmas. Turns out, i was the only dumbass who got a Genesis. Everyone else went Nintendo. So, for the rest of the year, while they traded games and cheat codes (up,down,B,A,B, right, right), I was stuck on the sidelines looking clueless. I grew to hate Sonic, as he represented the genesis brand. I didn't get my Nintendo for three years. So, fark Sonic for my bad decision.

vernonFL: The only problem with Mr. T as Santa Claus is that every Christmas Eve he refuses to get on the sleigh, folding his arms and saying, "you aint gettin me in no sleigh, Nancy Reagan!"

So Nancy Reagan has to put roofies in his eggnog to knock him out before he'll get in the sleigh.


Holy crap! I totally read that in his voice!

Funny, I have horrible memories of Sonic the Hedgehog. See, Xmas when I was in 5th grade was pivitol because with the introduction of two new gaming systems, kids in my neighborhood were all making the big decision...Nintendo or Sega? In the weeks before Xmas that year I had the opportunity to play Joe Montana Football with the kid of my mom's co-worker and I liked it so much i made my decision right there. We were gonna be a Sega Genesis household.

Fast-forward to the week after Xmas when I get to school and everyone starts rattling off what they got for Xmas. Turns out, i was the only dumbass who got a Genesis. Everyone else went Nintendo. So, for the rest of the year, while they traded games and cheat codes (up,down,B,A,B, right, right), I was stuck on the sidelines looking clueless. I grew to hate Sonic, as he represented the genesis brand. I didn't get my Nintendo for three years. So, fark Sonic for my bad decision.

/End CSB


Sega was the superior game platform.

The Jan/Feb issue of Playboy (to maximize profit they now only print 11 issues/year, it's been this way a few years) is the 60th anniversary and one of the editors (George Lois) reminisced over the last 60 years of ads that appeared in the magazine...

ALKA-SELTZER, December 1979: During a time of black revolution and rising racial tensions, I shocked America by depicting the surly badass Sonny Liston as the first black Santa on the cover of the December 1963 Issue of Esquire. (Sports Illustrated later described the boxer as "looking like the last man on earth America wanted to see coming down its chimney.") Only 16 years later, the sight of Sammy Davis Jr. as a smiling Santa in an Alka-Seltzer ad didn't even piss off the grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.

with the pic of Sammy Davis Jr. as Santa holding up a fizzing glass and toting a sack overflowing with 70s style Alka-Seltzer boxes, sleigh being pulled by 8 cartoon reindeer.

vernonFL: The only problem with Mr. T as Santa Claus is that every Christmas Eve he refuses to get on the sleigh, folding his arms and saying, "you aint gettin me in no sleigh, Nancy Reagan!"

So Nancy Reagan has to put roofies in his eggnog to knock him out before he'll get in the sleigh.


My friend gets so drunk at our yearly office Christmas party I usually have to help him get in his car.

If this happened today, the New York Post would front cover a story about Michelle Obama flirting with Mr T. and the story inside would have a bunch of pictures of a scowling, disapproving Barack.


I was wondering when that shot was going to be brought up, given the current "controversy". Perfectly perfect.

Matthew Keene: durbnpoisn: Uh, how did this become an argument?

The most popular representation of Santa came from a Coca Cola ad YEARS ago.  Prior to that, the whole concept was developed by western culture in Europe.  By white people.  What the hell color did anyone expect him to be?

Plus if he was black he certainly wouldn't be leaving gifts.


Santa Claus is an American invention. Developed from the Dutch Sinterklaas, the Christian St. Nicholas and the English Father Christmas, but very different from all of them. The whole coming down the chimney, leaving toys for kids for to find on Christmas morning? That was invented in the early 19th century in New York, NY, by Washington Irving and other members of the Knickerbocker Club.

Santa "looks" white, maybe. The earliest documentation of his appearance comes from "A Visit from St. Nicholas."

And he look'd like a peddler just opening his pack:
His eyes - how they twinkled! His dimples: how merry,
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry;
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow;


You could argue that Santa is white, because he has red cheeks and a red nose, but what's completely clear is that he's not HUMAN, so white is kinda beside the point. He's described as tiny, riding in a "miniature sleigh," and as a "right jolly old elf." Santa is no more human than Bilbo Baggins.

Considering that Santa Claus, or Saint Nicholas, is of German origin, and is often correlated with the imagery of Thor and other deities who are said to have brought gifts for Yule, I'd say technically in a most historical sense, he would be white. Just like Jesus would likely be about the same complexion as a modern middle-easterner, and Buddha would look like your average Indian.

However, given that Santa Claus, in the truest sense, is a representation of the ideal behind Yule, which is family, peace, and the giving of gifts to celebrate the holiest aspects of the family and the core concepts of true community and hospitality, he doesn't have to be white. He can be any fscking color you want, so long as he remembers to preach the fact that christmas is a time of giving to others to honor their sacrifices and gifts given to you, and the highest traditions of hospitality.

This is why my family celebrates by giving to the poor and feeding the homeless, and by giving to others.

/Yes, Christmas is Socialist.
//AMazingly, the whole farking point is about helping others and doing good works for your brethren.
///No, Ebenezer Scrooge and a christmas carol is not meant to be the core of republican horror stories
//conservative/libertarian/moderate liberal depending on who you ask

There are lots of "white" people in the Levant. Arabs and Jews aren't any darker than anyone else who lives around the Mediterranean; they just often get more sun. Jesus most likely had brown eyes, brunet or black hair and a tan. In "Murica, if you fit that description and are of Italian or Jewish descent, you're considered "white, no?"

Merged, and radically changed in America, into an artificially contrived "family" holiday designed to present an alternative to traditional English Christmas. Christmas in Merry Olde England was such a boozeup that one of the first things the Massachusetts Bay Colony did was to ban Christmas as a pagan orgy with no Scriptural backing. People were punished in Boston for taking the day off on Christmas, because the Puritans well knew that Jesus was most likely born in March, and that the Roman Catholic Church had glommed on to Saturnalia in the Roman Empire, and other solstice celebrations elsewhere.

All this is from The Battle for Christmas, where among other things, I learned that Christmas caroling back in the day was more like Halloween. If a mob of drunken boys and servants showed up outside your door yowling carols off key, and you didn't buy them off with wassail, they'd chuck iceballs and rocks through your windows.

This.    The democrats are the most racist of the 2 main political parties, and this is just more proof.    Pandering to specific races and ethnicitys is horrible.  Here is a tip democrats: treat everyone equally for a change.  Its a typical divide and conquer strategy with a twist.
