Santa to blame for childhood obesity

The Daily Express has reported that "Dr Grills, a public health fellow at Monash University, Australia, has studied the negative impact of Santa’s image on public health in literature and on the web."

It goes on to say:

"His fat and sugar-loaded diet sends out a message that obesity is synonymous with cheerfulness and joviality. His habit of consuming a brandy at every home indicates a serious booze problem and added to that is the more disturbing possibility of Santa drink-driving his sleigh."

So now Santa is to blame for drink driving and obesity.

Frankly I've never liked him since he didn't get me the scalextric I wanted when I was six.
