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.

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'd be pissed, too, if I was Barrak...

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.

I don't want to imply that Santa absolutely has to be white, but, lets just point out that he be breaks into houses and leaves things rather than takes them.

That kinda narrows the field a bit.

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.

I ran into a Mr T cosplayer at a con a few years ago, and we were joking around he was hysterical.   The subject of fools came up.  (Of course).

"Aw Mr T, everybody knows all fools deserve pity.   You taught us that!"    He chuckled a lot.
