Broken: Explanations of Santa's appearances

An anonymous reader writes from Utah:

When I looked on a milk carton at school (Currently in High School) It said "Meet the Real Santa at Provo Towne Centre!" (Not a typo - that's what it's called.) It gave the dates November 30th through December 24, all day.

Then I look at my little brothers' flyer that he got from school, stating that you could meet the "real Santa" at University Mall during the same dates.

And then on the city's website it states that Santa will be at the Senior Citizens Center on the 10th. They could at least have a better explanation than "He is everywhere at once." Or "He is super fast." Oh well.

But we all know where the real Santa is... in Tokyo! Re-posting from my Dec. 2003 entry,...

SantastopI spotted this outside a restaurant in Tokyo earlier this week. A Christmas sign whose English translation went horribly wrong...


Clearly, Santa's MIT PhD has paid off and his mastery of the wormhole has impacted children everywhere.

Will the real slim Santa please stand up.

What is wrong with the sign? Am I missing something?

HINT: Look for sexual innuendo.

Quantum physics. Santa can easily be in two places at once. In fact, he MUST be.

i really don't get it either, if there is sexual innuendo, one must really have to have twisted sense of humor, but i still don't get it.

Signs that say Santa Stop, and Santa Stop Here, are posted all over my neighborhood, and using your logic, i should assume that i live in a neighborhood of pediphiles. Lighten up, it is the holidays. Next you will say Santa is a pervert for having hundreds of children in his lap every year at this time.

We've already had this conversation last year. Gah.

Posted by: Ilan at December 27, 2004 02:59 PM

do they show a girl saying that she has been a good girl, so santa should stop

Posted by: joe plaugher at December 28, 2004 01:04 PM

i think some of the people around here are broken....

Posted by: Dragon at December 28, 2004 10:40 PM

we should submit them to mark (joking)

Posted by: joe plaugher at December 28, 2004 11:04 PM

Well, I don't think most signs sound like pleas, just markers. "I have been a good girl all year, please STOP" sounds more like talking, not like a marker.

Posted by: j at December 29, 2004 03:57 PM

I think the sign says more about the reader than the writer.....

Posted by: Please Stop Me at December 30, 2004 08:28 PM

I think it reads more like the girl is pleading with santa to stop whatever it is that he is doing because she has been a good girl.
