the AORBS are out in force

I just got a text from Beth: “I just saw an AORBS”

That’s right, the AORBS are out in force this time of year … but you are going to want to make sure you check their licenses before you use their services this Christmas season.

AORBS are everywhere right now …. perched in malls, lounging in department stores, parading through the streets flocked by legions of adoring fans and diminutive deputies.

Jolly they are – but can you trust these Nicolatian Saints?

That depends on the blend of AORBS you come across, the good Santas vs. the bad Santas.

The Amalgamated Order of Real Beard Santas vs. the Amalgamated Order of Real Bearded Santas.

Behind this controversy is a story you have to hear to believe, a story that includes Santa Clause fisticuffs and very little joviality … children beware following the Santa link or overhearing the episode of This American Life it will direct you to.

You’ve been warned – let the AORBS civil war commence!

Update: the link has been down off-and-on.  It looks like a problem with the site – so just try back soon and it should (hopefully) be working again.

    I was on the edge of my seat waiting to hear all about the AORBS…unfortunately the link is currently dead. You’ll have to fill me in later.
