Who Stole Santa's Pipe.

By
Real Estate Attorney with Bay Vista Realty BK671311

Growing up, I remember all of the wonderful old pics of Santa, or Saint Nick

and he seemed to always have a pipe in hand.  

 

Now days, when I see a Santa, it is A) not in the same jolly old artistic style, and B) Sans Pipe. Today all we see are the pipe-less, cartoonish variants of the Santa that we all grew up with. Did the Anti Tobacco Industry get ahold of Santa and nick his pipe. 

I'm not a smoker per say, although I do enjoy the desultory cigar.  But when it is against the law to see a person drink a beer in a commercial, or smoke a cigarette, but then movies like "Get him to the Greek" are a major hit with the characters in a equable state of post indulgent bliss (er....high, stoned, schnockered, lit, buluped, etc ) it makes one wonder where we prioritize our media message. 

The Anti Smoking message is lost on me if it is limited to the occassionaly commercial....UNTIL I don't see Jolly old Saint Nick with a PIPE....THEN I GET IT!


Soon the Fat police will be after him, taking away his friend foods, then OSHA and some Union will grab his elfen workers.  He is at least Green with the Reindeer mode of Transportation, but no telling how many trucks are lost on that reality show taking materials to his distant shop, but it is just a matter of time before P.E.T.A. Steps in to protect the long linage of proud Reindeer that have pulled the sleigh for hundreds of years. 

 

And hell, once TSA   realizes that Santa is entering without pat downs, and bringing contraband (meaning importing goods without paying the Duties) into our nation they will focus all efforts at securing our NORTHERN border, effectively putting Santa out of business.

 

Kinda makes me wonder what else Political Correctness will Kill off.


Will Killer Whales become Mis-understood Multi-Racial Thyroid Challenged Dolphins........

Elves become little people who JUST HAPPEN to look good in Green, and happen to have an ear issue......

Maybe the Homeless will advance as Post Foreclosure predictors.

 

Enough is enough......I want my old Santa Back, replete with Elves, rain-deer, pipe, fatter than before!  I want the Carefree days of the 70's back when I could use all the words I could fully understand....and I want AMERICA back in AMERICA, not Europe!

Hello Gary and a Hilarious Post and I think Santa might have out grown his pipe or quite smoking it because of all the 'No Smoking' areas around the World ...

A jolly read for sure--and I miss Santa's pipe too, but a slender Santa??

Actually Santa voluntarily stopped smoking.  The doctor told him to give up the habit when he prescribed viagra to the jolly old fellow.  Mrs. Claus was pressuring him to follow doctor's orders.
