This is coolbert:
Surely this one takes the cake!
NORAD = North American Air Defense.
Christmas story gone bad.
"take the cake: 1. To be the worst in a series of negative actions."
A harmless and amusing American Christmas tradition under attack. Just plain stupid. From the Internet web site "Blazing Cat Fur" and thanks to same.
"On Christmas eve, as has happened for the past sixty years, NORAD tracked Santa Claus and his sleigh as he made his way around the world. Of all of the modern traditions of Christmas, you might think that this is one of the more harmless and fun ones for children to follow and, in some cases, participate in by calling the hotline. But it would appear that there is a grinch for every season these days, since someone found a reason to object to the tradition and call for it to end."
"grinch: a grumpy person who spoils the pleasure of others"
Not only a "grumpy person who spoils the pleasure of others" in addition seems to do so in a perverse way, almost sickening.
"Santa Claus, legendary figure who is the traditional patron of Christmas in the United States and other countries, bringing gifts to children. His popular image is based on traditions associated with Saint Nicholas, a 4th-century Christian saint."
The man who made this suggestion is a sick and terribly troubled person who needs serious medical help and who hopefully will receive strong pharma to calm down his fevered brain.
