Santa is way too fat! – School choir sings.

By T_Bone - 14 December 2005 11

In a refreshing, although somewhat strange, piece of non-PC Christmas celebration I heard the school choir of the day in Garema Place singing this chorus.

Santa Claus, Santa Claus,
You are way too fat.
I was happy sleeping,
but now my bed is flat.

Santa Claus, Santa Claus,
How much do you weight?
I’m glad I’m not a reindeer,
Pulling your Christmas sleigh.

The song then went on to mention eating cookies and the sleigh flying low due to santa being so overweight.

I have to be honest and say that I thought this was funny that a school choir was taught to sing a song mocking fat old father Christmas considering the current media going around on how to deal with childhood obesity. It must have slipped under the PC radar.

What’s Your opinion?

Interesting how the ends of all the lines form a straight diagonal line when written down eh?

Yeah, it is kinda troublesome, isn’t it?

Obviously, it’s to rhyme with fat, but … well, if they’re meant to be flat because Santa got into them, it raises the further question of what the hell Santa was doing in the kid’s bed?

Frankly, it makes me want to transfer my allegiances to Kwanzabot.

If only you had a brain bonfire, you might actually be dangerous.

I’ve been on jury duty for three weeks and missed a lot of things. First comments I see are VG testiculating and Bonfire being ignorant. Sigh. The more things change the more they stay the same. Go the “cigarette butts aren’t litter and breasts are not for feeding” threads!

You obviously missed the no-smokers thread. He was all over it like a rash.

I must be due a breastfeeding article.

Oh. Bonfire. You’re still here. And still haven’t acquired a sense of humour I see.

did they sing a song making fun of black peopel and then one about chasing lebanese in the streets and beating them ?

maybe its easier to teach prejudice than good nutrition principles.

next year i’ll roll up with a punch and judy show, the kids shoudl laugh til they cry while mr punch beats the bejesus out of his wife.
