Santa Claus Shot Down by SA-15 Missile over Northern Iran


Santa sled fireball

TEHRAN (Dec 24)-The Iranian News Agency is claiming that the Doshan Tapeh Air Base commander has reported one of it's newly aquired Russian SA-15 anti-aircraft missile defense batteries engaged and shot down the Santa Claus reindeer propelled flying sled over Northern Iran today. The target was tracked on radar for 10 minutes before the order to fire was given by the regional air defense commander

Witnesses report seeing the SA-15 streak skyward erupting in a brilliant flash and then a giant fireball plummeting to the earth. The fireball was captured on film.

The smoldering wreckage was discovered in the mountainous region of Mazandaran Province, just south of the Caspian Sea.

The crash site had been looted by local village children leaving only scraps of colorful paper wraps and ribbon amid a large impact crater.

There were no signs of a survivor. Villagers reported a large pack of wolves carried off the reindeer remains.

A NORAD command spokesperson at Peterson Air Force Base answered "no comment" when asked if Santa had yet to appear on US radar. An unnamed senior radar specialist commented, "In all the years I've been doing this I've never seen Santa fail to show up on radar. I fear something dreadful has happened".


Doshan Tapeh Air Base Commander, Rashaii Albukaala discusses the missile incident on Memri TV.

The rumour is that they are going in. No orders, just gear up and go. Like the 442nd RCT was said to have done when they got the word FDR died.

This conversation was just intercepted by NSA's massive global eavesdropping and domestic surviellance network.....

Santa: Where are you taking me?? You are all being very naughty.

Iranian General: Why you come to Iran, my main man?

Santa: To bring happiness and joy to the children.

Iranian General: And this is...? This is what you think brings happy? This is material... This is commercialism! My country is sick. Sick!

Santa: No, your country has just lost all its Christmas spirit. What's going on here?!

Iranian General: America wants to bomb my house, my main man. They want to kill my wife and children. We need to know... what is their plan?

Santa: I don't know, I live in the North Pole. What are you doing??

Iranian General: They say that the Chinese were the first to experiment with a little shock to the testicles.

Santa: Oh no. Not Santa's balls!

Iranian General: What else is America planning?!

Santa: I'm gonna fu***** kill you!

Iranian General: You're not in a position to kill anyone, my main man! I just want you to tell me America's plan!

Santa: Then we're in for a long night, 'cause I don't know sh**!

I think we all need to calm down and reflect upon all those things Santa did to make them so very angry with him.

"I think we all need to calm down and reflect upon all those things Santa did to make them so very angry with him."

You nailed it. That would have been {insert any lefty talking head's name here} position. It must be the relationship that santa had with the US chilrun. Ergo, IT'S BUSH'S FAULT.

This story from roto-reuters is a good example of their news reporting accuracy. All their stories are about as accurate as this one.

Wouldn't it be a pip if Iran put out a story denoucing this because they thought it wasn't satire?

LOL! That would be too funny!
