Santa Can Be Sketchy

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Not every mall Santa can be holly and jolly – in fact, some are downright sketchy.

Will Zweigart is the creator of sketchysantas.com, which features pictures of kids with weird, creepy-looking mall Santas.

He decided to chronicle Santa pics gone wrong when he noticed how many kids’ holiday pics were ruined by not-so-saintly St. Nicks.

He says the three main offenses that make a Santa sketchy are intoxication, wardrobe malfunctions, and inappropriate hand placement.

It also doesn’t help when a sketchy Kris Kringle is laughing as the traumatized kids are crying in the photo.

Zweigart has received tons of strange Santa submissions, some so scandalous that he prays, “No children under 10 ever stumble on this site, as the shock would be quite severe.”

So far, the most popular post is of a grown teen on Santa’s lap, strapped with a saxophone.

As Zweigart puts it, “You never forget it.”
