Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Santa Responds

Upon first glance, this small hardcover book has an attractive cartoon Santa on the cover. But on closer inspection you can see that this isn't the Santa we all know. This version has his big belly hanging out of his short sleeved shirt with a tattoo on his bicep peeking out. He's smoking a cigar, drinking scotch and using his laptop. This gives you a good indication of what is to come. This is not a Christmas book written for kids.

Inside are letters that are suppose to be from children. On the left hand of each page is a letter to Santa in kid's hand writing on notebook paper. On the right hand side is a response to each letter. There is a cute Santa and his reindeer logo at the top from Santa Enterprises, North Pole. Santa's answers are for grown ups. Some are funny, some are rude, some are down right obnoxious but that is the intention. I would qualify this as more of a joke book.

Thanks to Running Press and Shelf Awareness for this book.

Unauthorized, unsanitized,
and unbelieveable,
here's the real Santa Claus
(not that creepy guy at the mall!)

  1. I'd be afraid to read this and then wake up Christmas morning with coal in my stocking -- don't mess with The Claus!
