santa claus wears a red suit, he’s a communist…

i am not 100% sure where i heard it, but i am kinda sure it was in my father’s collection of weird music. my dad had the weirdest collection of music i ever heard; some of the songs still ring in my head – and they still whorp my reality at a core level :) if i had anything i would blame my father for, it would be my desire to hear whacked music – anyway, i digress :)

i remember the song about santa – and i think it went like this; “santa claus wears a red suit, he’s a communist. santa claus has long hair and a beard, so he must be a pacifist. And what’s in the pipe that he’s smoking? Santa Claus comes in your house at night. He must be a dope fiend to get you up tight.”

the song is funny, and eye opening. funny, because when i mentioned this to a third grade teacher, she got all up set – how dear i, or anyone, make fun of santa? the funny part of this was it was at a school board meeting where they were discussing the need to seperate “church and state” – the teacher just got done speaking on how we need to keep “christiany” out of the school room – she had just given a rant on the abuses of christianity and that jesus had no place in the lives of third graders. eye opening, because people just don’t get it.
