During the summer, Santa tries to figure out new ways ”to raise funds” for his workshop.
/// “HANDS UP!” Santa Claus now seems to say
as he aims a revolver your way.
Why this vicious attack?
Put your cash in his sack.
He brings gifts; it’s the parents who pay.
Santa defending himself during a home invasion.
“Who are you accusing of breaking into your home?”
Give me all the cocaine that you got! I need enough for two dozen elves and one reindeer.
“Bad Santa III: Hand Over the Cookies!”
♪Hanging my stocking I can hear a knocking.♪
♪Zat you, Santa Claus?♪
Who cleans the stable after that?
Anti-claus. Who says crime doesn’t pay. I’ve stuffed my last chimney. Gimme’ all your Bitcoin and you can have these crappy reindeer.
Well, do ya feel lucky, punk, well, do ya??
The comments may be funny, but the cartoon seems to be quite tasteless and non-funny in today’s gun culture.
When you’ve been so bad that a lump of coal is no longer the answer
♪ Santa Clause is gunning through town ♫
Santa just hasn’t been the same since he quit taking his ProZac!
uggh. That is an ugly painting
“I know you’ve been jingling Mrs. Klaus’ bells!”
This is not funny..
Yes, you are right. This is the most powerful handgun in the world and it would blow your head clean off. Do you feel lucky, punk?
“Santa Claus – he’ll sleigh you!”
Will Crawford was a political cartoonist
Christmas in July… er, August?
“Father Christmas” had finally heard that Kinks song one too many times.
This ain’t no 34th Street, fella.
Yo, Hollywood – more christmas movies like Die Hard, fewer christmas movies like Elf. Capish?
I’ll shoot any elf who fools around with the Mrs. while I am on my deliveries!
From the Library of Congress:Title: “Hands up!” / Will Crawford. Creator(s): Crawford, Will, 1869-1944, artist Published by Keppler & Schwarzmann, Puck Building, 1912 December 11. Caption: As Santa Claus looks to some of us. Illus. in: Puck, v. 72, no. 1867 (1912 December 11), cover.
From WikipediaPuck was the first successful humor magazine in the United States of colorful cartoons, caricatures and political satire of the issues of the day. It was founded in 1871 as a German-language publication by Joseph Keppler, an Austrian-born cartoonist.1 Puck’s first English-language edition was published in 1877, covering issues like New York City’s Tammany Hall, presidential politics, and social issues of the late 19th century to the early 20th century.
This painting was on the cover of an early satirical magazine called “Puck” on December 11, 1912.
On the original Puck cover, there’s a subtitle: “As Santa Claus looks to some of us.” That suggests Will Crawford’s intent was to satirize the, shall we say, obligatory nature of some Christmas gift-giving.
Santa’s resolution of the supply chain problem arising from the elves’ strike ended up driving Toys “R” Us into bankruptcy.
“Twas the night before Christmas” when (to my chagrin)/
I discovered that Santa has a mean, evil twin/
While the rest of the world by his brother is charmed/
This nasty old b@$t@rd goes heavily armed//
He follows his brother into every abode/
Taking back any gift that his brother bestowed//
And if you should wonder why he is legend’s unsaid/
It’s because those who met him are probably dead..
That revolver is, by its appearance, not loaded.
Santa says it’s bedtime, kids. Don’t make Santa angry. You wouldn’t like him when he’s angry.
Just like the Corleone family, the Claus family had three brothers. The third makes his appearance at 1:54 in this clip. www.youtube.com/watch%3Fv%3DB_7xqqt1Vgs
Santa makin’ his rounds in Da Hood.
Ralphie as an adult. He traded his Red Ryder 500 shot with a compass in the stock for a lousy 6 shooter. And as you can see, he did indeed shoot an eye out – his left one.
Still winning the War on Christmas.
Then one foggy Christmas eve the sheriff came to say,
Santa with your gun so bright, won’t you kill my wife tonight?
So this is how St. Nick gets all those presents. And to think I believed in elves toiling away at the North Pole all these years.
“Have you been a good boy this year?”

Old West Santa. People wanting to censor humor? GEEZ!!
Santa standing his ground.
“This year I want presents… So gimme.”
Only people in the know knew Santa’s sleigh secretly relied on a gas-powered engine and with the price of gas it is Santa had to find ways to purchase said gas.
Santa needed a way to protect his bag of toys in the high crime areas since the DA’s weren’t doing their job.
Go ahead…make my Holiday!
“I’ll put your eye out, kid!”
When stuffing coal in the stocking just doesn’t seem to get through to them anymore…
This was how Santa discourages those extra clingy lap wetters in the year 1912.
