A Nine-Year-Old Is Upset When Santa Tells Him to “Lay Off the Hamburgers and French Fries”…Was that too far? Or just enough?

A nine-year-old kid in North Carolina sat on Santa’s lap last weekend, and Santa told him to, quote, “Lay off the hamburgers and French fries.”  Now his mom is calling for Santa to be fired.


Children today are larger than children used to be.  It’s fine, food is delicious, and based on adult weight trends we’re obviously in NO position to judge.  But you have to imagine it wreaks havoc on Santa’s lap this time of year.



And he finally snapped.  Metaphorically.  I don’t mean his leg bones literally snapped under the weight of an American child.



A nine-year-old kid named Anthony Mayse went to sit on Santa’s lap in Forest City, North Carolina last weekend, and asked him for an iPod Touch and a drone.



But at the end of their conversation, Santa told Anthony, quote, “Lay off the hamburgers and French fries.”



Anthony was really upset and started crying, and now his mom wants the city to fire Santa.



The town manager says Santa has apologized, but for now, he’s keeping his job.
