SVMPTVM FAC DONEC CONSVMPTVS SIS






Santa shot Jesus out of the saddle



"Bah Humbug! isn't good enough for Jimmy Wright.

The Metchosin artist, known for his paintings of stylized polar bears, has put an effigy of Santa Claus on a cross on his front lawn to make a statement about the orgy of consumption in the modern world."

Comments

That's great, especially coming from a guy in a hot tub and a huge expensive house. No, seriously: We've seen images and ornaments showing Santa Claus kneeling at Baby Jesus' manger, but if you get one, you are still buying something. Recently we have seen a lot more images of the jolly old elf that look more like Saint Nicholas and less like an unlikely image that was created to sell Coca-Cola in the first place, the capitalist potion par excellence.
