I’m just loving this holiday Web site, Keep Santa Fat, which offers a lighthearted poke at the politically correct obesity police while raising money to fight hunger. Visitors will find an “investigative report” into the controversy, links to various news stories about the issue, links to online holiday games and historical Santa information and images, and of course, Santa’s favorite cookie recipes. Don’t miss the “interviews” with kids about how they feel about Santa’s girth — classic great laugh out loud stuff. As the site’s promoters say, it was Mrs. Claus who, in 1964’s “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” said, “Whoever heard of a skinny Santa?”
The ad agency that created the site will contribute the equivalent of one pound of food to America’s Second Harvest for every petition signature received, up to 50,000 pounds, and the equivalent of 20 pounds of food for every piece of Keep Santa Fat merchandise sold. Second Harvest, the nation’s food bank network, expects a 15 million pound food shortage this holiday season. So check it out to give your kids a laugh while also supporting a good cause.
