Some Amusing Letters to Santa

December 23, 2010 -

A series of letters to Santa from the third grade class at Goessel Elementary School (Marion, Kansas) might just give you the Christmas spirit. The most amusing questions that children asked were why Santa was so fat and why his wife wouldn't help him deliver presents.

Naturally the most asked for items were video games and video game systems. One third-grader even asked for Call of Duty: Black Ops. I hope that Santa does not fulfill that particular request. Below are a few amusing samples:

How is your life with Mrs. Claus? Do you have kids? I am funny and silly and everyone that I know is nice. I want Legos, video games, candy, Call of Duty Black Ops, and a DSi. I will get my cousins an iPhone and my dad a car. We have a white house with blue lights and do not have a chimney. Do the reindeer talk? This year I think I will leave juice for you because I do not want a fat Santa. How did you get fat in the first place? How did you get the job? Thank you for the presents. Your friend,

Luke

Vincent wants a lot. I feel sorry for Santa:

How many hairs would there be if you would shave? I’ve been good but my brothers have not. How about you? Have you been good? I want candy, Bakugan, Legos, DS games, PSP, PS3, Xbox Live, Xbox 360, and a Playstation 3. My friend Cody wants lots of video games. My house is very tall and is white and tan. Go to the garage and my Christmas tree is in our living room. Do you feed your reindeer? I will leave some carrots for you that way you can fit down the chimney. Has your suit ever been a different color than red? Thank you for everything you’ve given me. Your friend,

Vincent

Anton wants video games and asks Santa why he's so fat:

Do you like video games? I live in the country in a house with a brown roof. Santa, how did you get so fat? Get my brother, Jakob, an mp3. I want video games and Legos. I’ve been both naughty and nice this year. Does Rudolph have a bright nose? I will leave you some pop and cookies because you like it. Santa, are you going to ever switch jobs? Does your wife deliver presents with you? Does your sleigh carry magic? Thank you for listening. Your friend,

Anton

E. Zachary KnightWonderkarp, do you feel the same way about Extra Credits? They took money from a game developer to produce a series of videos that act as a kind of advertising for that developer's game.05/05/2015 - 2:23pm

Andrew EisenIt may well be. What evidence have you seen that Capybara donated prior to the video's release?05/05/2015 - 2:18pm
Wonderkarpit is still a fact. first game she gushes over paid her. i wont say they paid her for the advert. but that fact still stands05/05/2015 - 2:16pm
Andrew EisenTrue or not, that does not change the arguments she makes in her video.05/05/2015 - 2:12pm
Wonderkarptheres also the fact the the games devs donated to femfreq and here she is advertising their game05/05/2015 - 2:10pm
Andrew EisenAnother interesting factoid, Sarkeesian does drop in a mention of Samus in that video.05/05/2015 - 2:08pm
Andrew EisenAnd for whatever it's worth to you, McIntosh only produced that video. It was written by Sarkeesian and Carolyn Petit.05/05/2015 - 2:07pm
Andrew EisenI'm certainly willing to discuss them. But I can't discuss the video particulars with you if you haven't watched it.05/05/2015 - 2:00pm
Wonderkarpwell you guys report these videos frequently I figure you'd at least be willing to back them up.05/05/2015 - 1:59pm
Andrew EisenNo, it means I'm not bothering to summarize the arguments of a video you didn't watch but nevertheless feel qualified to denigrate. Shame on you.05/05/2015 - 1:56pm
WonderkarpThat means you got nothing. I'm not watching her videos anymore. Mcintosh disgusts me as a human being05/05/2015 - 1:54pm
Andrew EisenDude, seriously? Try actually watching Sarkeesian's video.05/05/2015 - 1:41pm
Wonderkarpsuch as? cause all I see is Duck Monster Face http://boingboing.global.ssl.fastly.net/uploads/default/73100/895f09b00b87aea9.png05/05/2015 - 1:39pm
Andrew EisenIf Q*bert was female, in some ways yes. But there's far more to the Scythian argument than a lack of gender identifiers.05/05/2015 - 1:37pm
Wonderkarpby that logic, Qbert would make a positive example of female representation.05/05/2015 - 1:31pm
Andrew EisenI disagree for the reasons, well, for the reasons Sarkeesian states in her video. Also, as she points out, the lack of specific gender identifiers is part of why she's a positive example of female representation in video games.05/05/2015 - 1:22pm
WonderkarpWell its about GD Time She presented a good Positive Female Character. Scythian is an awful example. a emotionless blob of pixels that I couldnt tell you was female without a guide. In comparison Samus out of suit made in the 80s is far more noticeable05/05/2015 - 1:18pm
Andrew EisenSarkeesian tossed us a change up with the Scythian but the next Positive Female Characters episode looks to cover BG&E's Jade! https://twitter.com/femfreq/status/59425534635858739305/05/2015 - 1:14pm
