Mary Trent recently brought her son to the Lowe’s Christmas Market in Toronto for a visit with Santa Claus. Her son, a big Maple Leafs fan, approached Santa proudly wearing a Maple Leafs tuque (another name for a beanie or stocking cap). Then Santa dropped a few bombs, according to the Toronto Sun.
The first thing he tells my son is, ‘Oh, you look like Paul Bunyan.’ Then he said, ‘Oh, you’re wearing a Toronto Maple Leafs tuque, you shouldn’t be wearing that, they suck.’
Mary Trent quickly left with her son, and told him Santa was having a bad day. Her son cried all the way home. The Santa Claus in question has since lost his job. Who sucks NOW, Santa? Not the Trent family, for whom revenge is a fine wine sipped in front of a TV that is not showing the Maple Leafs, because the NHL is in the middle of another lockout.

Leave your personal biases at home, Santa.
