Ahahahahah!Thanks so much Eddie and Steve! Masked santa would STILL creep me the hell out. And some of those beards, what were they thinking!!??
I had to promote a pirate game the week before Sinterklaas (our Dutch Santa Claus person) and the first day of that weekend they had a sinterklaas who was Way too young. The kids were not buying him at all and preferred shooting canon ball and opted for checking out my table while the whole sitting on Sints lap parade went on, mumbling to me that that was "helper sint".
They proceeded shooting the torpedo canon ball thingies from the ships at my table towards the rest of the crowd and finally at eachother in the eye. Tears appeared. Fights occured. Parents got pissed. And I had 3 more hours to go to promote this... dangerous game. This all while too-young-sint tried to keep up the spirit. Joyful joyful. Department stores around sinterklaas/christmas time are HELL. (but obviously make for hilarious pictures).

Holy SHit...that masked Santa is one Scary-ass S.O.B.!!
The first Santa looks like actor Jean Reno...after a few drinks of course.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! The first and last Santas are great!

The first one's eyes say it all - a combination of "What the @#%!& did I do in my life to deserve this?!?!?!?!" and "I really, really, really DON'T want to be here".

The last one is way too scary. It looks more like the psycho killer in slasher films instead of the "happy, jolly soul".

cableclair - poor you! Your story is really funny, although I think that the incident wasn't funny at the time.

This is why I never beleived in Santa Claus as a kid... It's terrifying, really.

Stephen Worth said...

Isn't that young master Mikey Fontanelli in the last picture?

See ya

In the event that the third Santa ISN'T wearing a mask, Christmas time is the only interlude in which he can feel remotely socially acceptable.

Katie said...

Aw, man!!

I was making christmas cards for all you guys using these for the covers...poo!!

Maybe I'll have to dig up my own disgruntled santa pictures out of my photo albums to use...

Shawn said...

Hahahahaha!!!!

Those Santas are HIDEOUS! No wonder those kids are screaming.

Hey Stephen, thanks for the link to those other Santa pictures! That's some funny stuff! I sent some of those pictures to my friends.

My parents have a similar picture of me, from when I was a kid, sitting on Santa's lap and screaming my eyes out. Santa used to scare the crap out of me when I was 3 years old! BUT then when I learned that he brings me toys, I wanted to be his best friend...I'm such a kiss ass.

Kali Fontecchio said...

Have you ever been a dressed up Santa, Eddie?

"Maybe I'll have to dig up my own disgruntled santa pictures out of my photo albums to use..."

That I gotta see!

PCUnfunny said...

Well, another reason why I don't mind not celebrating Christmas.

Katie said...

Kali- somewhere I have a polaroid of me and my friend Maya sitting on Santa's lap when we're about 15 or so...I have this huge retarded grin and Maya's face is all scrunched up and strange looking. After we finished taking the picture, she told me that Santa had been cupping and gently squeezing her ass cheek the whole time! Horrible!

...it's a really funny picture though!

Jorge Garrido said...

I love Christmas, and I hope this is the first of many Christmas posts from Edward Q. Fitzgerald.

Kali Fontecchio said...

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh! Holy crap! Santa Perv!!!!!

I HAVE to see that!

The last time I sat on someone's lap (in a costume) was the Easter bunny- I think I was 16......eeesh!

Marlo Meekins said...

Kali, same here, 16 and on easter bunny's lap. pretty sick

Evan said...

Great posts Eddie, I don't always take the time to comment, but I am enjoying your every post.

I just posted a rant myself that has been building up for years... check it out at Evan's Niblets if you get a spare moment.

Eddie Fitzgerald said...

Evan: Nice rant and nice blog!

Jorge: I'll definitely put up some Christmas material. This is my favorite time of the year!

BTW, referring to your earlier note, You should pick the subject for your rant not me! Better hold off on it though, I have a backlog I haven't gotten to yet!

Katie: Aaaargh! I didn't know about your card! You should use Steve's picture anyway!

I still have the fridge magnet card you gave me at Spumco! What a terrific present!

Eddie Fitzgerald said...

Cable: Great story about Sinterklass! Now I wish I was in Holland for Christmas!

Josh "Just What the Doctor Ordered" Heisie said...

Wow, usually I like Santa, he's kind and happy, but that last Santa is the most terrifying thing I've ever seen!

I'll instead work on it for a long time so it's actaully good.

It's also my favourite time of year!
