Well, you knew it was going to eventually happen. You knew that at some point Jesus was going to become sick and tired of Santa stealing all of his thunder over the Christmas holiday.
It seems the two icons crossed paths recently in Nipomo, CA when things turned ugly. I guess words were exchanged and Jesus, without a word of warning, pulled out a double barreled shotgun. The photo below shows the results of the confrontation. (Warning – this is a graphic photo).
Even worse, although you can’t see it in the photo, Jesus also took out Rudolph with a shot to the head and threw his lifeless body across the hood of a nearby pickup truck. Jesus was seen fleeing the scene in a white robe and sandals but his current whereabouts is unknown.
Actually, the photo is a work of “art” put together by Ron Lake. He says he created the piece to denunciate the commercialization of Christmas. Some of Ron’s neighbors are not happy with the gun toting Jesus and dead Santa but, so far, the police say they can’t do anything because it is on private property.
This got me thinking about such a matchup. Personally, due to Santa’s considerable girth, I think he could take Jesus in a one on one free for all. Jesus would definitely have the speed advantage but once Santa got Jesus on the ground, it would be over. Plus, Jesus would almost assuredly play the “God’s my dad” card to make Santa let him up.
I wasn’t feeling very Christmas like lately but this story seems to have helped.
