There ain't no Sanity Clause.

Bluewater Shopping Centre in Greenhithe, Kent, has taken the UK obesity crisis and wrapped it up for kids' this Christmas.The centre, which occupies 240 acres with 330 shops, restaurants and a 12-screen multiplex cinema, has set up a boot-camp for their Christmas Santas.
Worried what influence an overweight Santa might have on young children, the Shopping Centre management have decreed that all their Santas be leaner and fitter.

Let's go one step further and demand they all be "hot" and "buff" and wear red short-shorts and muscle shirts....

Yes to Special K's idea. It's just cruel to make the Santas run in fur suits.

Sans, I've tagged you for a hometown meme!
