Bad Santa

Just in time for Christmas, the British Medical Journal is featuring an article blaming Santa for obesity, speeding, drunk driving, extreme sports, smoking and reckless behavior.

Dr Nathan “Grinch” Grills wants to rework Santa into a politically correct image, right down to wearing a helmet and seat belt.

Using a variation of the nannies second favorite chant (if it saves one life, it’s worth it) he whines  “Santa only needs to affect health by 0.1 per cent to damage millions of lives”.

Nutritionist Zoe Bingley-Pullin chimed in to say he should a protected brand that can’t be used to promote unhealthy food or alcohol.

May these two scrooges be doomed to a lifetime of Christmases’ eating toufurky and drinking warm near beer.  To the rest of you, Merry Christmas!
