Sx3: Splashy Santa!

In honor of The Holidays...Live, from Our Nation's Capital, the Waterskiing Santa Claus! We don't know who this is...he deliberately hides his identity from the public...but he shows up on the Potomac River every Christmas Eve afternoon, often accompanied by waterskiing elves, Rudolph, & sometimes even Mrs. Claus!

Welcome to our Holiday Edition of The Silly Sunday Sweepstakes. You know what to do! Take a gander at this Superior Snap, and Conjur a Caption. Tippy-type Said Caption in the Comments Box Below, & You're. All. Set!

As always, the rules stipulate that you win nothing substantial for all your time & energy. Just that Warm Fuzzy Feeling you get when you know you've done something that certainly qualifies as Remarkable in every way.

So, what are you waiting for? Get Scribbling!

Santa did his best, but unfortunately, was upstaged by the waterskiing reindeer pyramid.

And WHAT are you doing up so early?! I hope to goodness you wrote this up last night or something & set it to post in the AM! Gracious! It's the weekend, darnit!

Hmmmm, how about:

Try as they might, the elves could not quite get the sleigh up to snuff that year, and so sent Santa via a new form of transport: the waterski.

(Yeah....no. That was awful. It's 4:15am though, so I guess I have excuses).

Santa to the rescue, with a Splashy Holiday Bailout Package!

-or-

Congress is a downer; Christmas isn't for drowners!

Gilahi said...

In an attempt to demonstrate how the $700 billion bailout package will work, Congress hires a fictional character to push a ski boat with a rope.

Fearing the large crowd of protesters outside, President Bush decided he would outsmart them.
"Now who's the dummy", he chuckled as he balanced precariously on a pair of water skis in a rented santa costume.



Santa was proud of his PR gal. It was a bit unorthodox, and he was terrified of water, but he couldn't deny that it was a genius way to prove to skeptics that yes, even Santa knows how to find kids on houseboats at Christmas.

What a monumental feat! :)

Even global warming can't stop Santa!

Bilbo said...

Following the loss of his fortune in Bernard Madoff's vast Ponzi scheme, Santa packs up his troubles in an old kit bag, salutes the SEC, and heads south for the winter...unfortunately, he can only get as DC.

If I can no longer BUY the Illinois senate seat from Governor Blegojevich maybe I can get the nomination from him this way!

Teri said...

Ho Ho Holy #*)^*$&*! That water's cold!

Susie said...

"Bush's last offical act as president...a Santa pardon...wait...does that mean that George is driving the sleigh? Christmas is doomed!!"

CaliforniaTeacherGuy said...

Forget the sleigh with eight tiny reindeer. Gimme skis any day!

dkzody said...

Isn't this like that Happy Days episode called Jumping the Shark or some such thing that they now use as the end of anything successful. Looks like Santa is jumping the shark.

I can't stop laughing at Gilahi's!!

I'll wrap my brain around this one, and come back when the in-laws depart (blessedly).

But seriously, my only hope is for second.

I'm still laughing!

'Faster! Rudolph is drowning!'

You can blame that one on my boy.

From the monument's top
To the Washington Mall,
Now splash away, splash away,
Splash away all!

But I heard him exclaim
As he looked for a pub,
"Merry Christmas to all,
And to all, glub, glub, glub."

Deanna said...

Santa takes one last vacation before loading up his sleigh to deliver holiday cheer!

"and you think I can't see you when your sleeping?"

Ritch in Love said...

"Catch a wave and I'm sittin on top o' the world! The north pole that is!"

Nancy Flanagan said...

The failing economy forces our nation's capitol to re-package historical monuments as a theme park. A theme park like...Cypress Gardens, complete with waterskiing Santa, Parrothead Congress and the Red Streak/ Blue Streak coasters.

Nothing is sacred any more.

teachj said...

That's not a Santa, that's a space station.

Betty said...

I'll give you one more chance to be good. I mean it. Only one more.

Eudea-Mamia said...

"Va-ca-tion, all I ever wanted. Va-ca-tion, have to get away..."

(The Go-Go's reference for you in the younger seats.)

HappyChyck said...

A newly-slim Santa shows off his mad water skiing skillz, "The weight just fell off after I started water skiing--and eating Christmas cookies!"

Dawn said...

All work & no play makes Santa a dull boy, so he's getting his play on!

Maureen Hayes said...

Mrs. Claus has been after me to retire to a warmer climate for years, but I just don't think this is gonna work for me!

MissKris said...

You don't know who that is? Why, it's ME, that's who!

On to serious things, if I don't have time beforehand to stop by, I just wanted to wish you and your loved ones a most blessed, safe, and happy holiday!
