A couple of years ago, post-celebratory drinks, it all descended into a mass drunken brawl of 200 or so Santas. The photographs were incredible. True story.

I wonder where he washes his feet?

Maybe he just gets the Dachshund to lick them clean?

Hey, maybe Randy Quaid should seek asylum there.

He handed them to the boys and said “These are on the house….just stick them in your pockets so you don’t lose them…” When the alarm went off on our way out the door, he waved us on and told us to hurry or we’d miss our tour bus. Ask him…he’ll vouch for us…and if he doesn’t, I know where to find him.

(Six months later)
Soldier: Hey, I’m out of prison now.
Officer: Great, we need more soldiers. If you’d like to be an officer, go sit in that window and wash your feet…

Now if the boys could just return those mugs and shirts they carried out under their coats, we’ll call it even.

They got a big kick out of all of the exhibits, but I think the Krasnoyarsk Way of Life was probably their favorite. They were laughing and talking about it for hours afterward….of course, that could have just been delirium that set in as a result of an overload of sugar. I think maybe the chocolate icing and sprinkles on their doughnuts went straight to their heads….

And, really, why wouldn’t Santa Clause bungee jump? It makes perfect sense to me! Doughnut, stat! Please?
