stocking Bad Santas Tarnishing Christmas

These fat, money-grubbing idiots have long been bad for Christmas overall and have certainly harmed the cherished and honored legacy of Santa Claus. In my years as an online presence in the Christmas community I've seen these guys over and over prostitute themselves with a high-and-mighty attitude of superiority as they have fought amongst themselves, sold-out at every turn, and tried to use the image of Santa Claus for their own greedy purposes.

They deserve this media exposure.

In fact, they deserve worse.

Sadly, this has been brewing for some time now. Unfortunately, it only takes a few to tarnish all Santas. For many of these men (and women) it is not just about money -- a lot of this has to do with their egos.

I posted about this in my SantaBlog, if you want to read more.
