New Zealand has a Santa problem of epic proportions. Protest my ass, this was an excuse for looters, public drunkeness, and reckless endangerment by 40 rogue Santas.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I seem to recall this same thing happening in the same place last year. Is it becoming an annual event, now?

I am reminded of the Futurama Xmas episodes where Santa was a homicidal robot and if you were caught out on Xmas Eve, you could get nastily wasted for being naughty.

These seem to be in the same, low-life class as those assholes who disrupt soccer matches.

Nope, you aren't wrong. They call it Santarchy.

I'm sure that sounds infinely more witty after two dozen pints of beer.

Marketplace did a story on SantaCon tonight. Forget 40 rogue Santas, how about 200?

These guys are an example of a certain strain of social abberation/pathology I've made aquaintance with during my life (albeit usually somewhat more upscale) whom although I'd have to say are definitely "scumbags"... that (with my head down,) I laugh my ass off in taking a certain guilty pleasure in being entained by... in that the "Respectable Person" might surely say, "Good Lord, Man... have you no shame???!!!" when confronted by their screwball antics... as I know full well the truthful answer is- "No, in fact... when it comes to making a buck... I don't!!!"
