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.

"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!

Where's the first post complaining about Breaking or Not Breaking News?

Where's the first annoying post of 40 "Just Damn's" or "Bush's Fault?"

Where's the guy that DEMANDS an accurate link?

I've just received inside information that it was a "Santa-like-with-reindeer" UAV that had covertly been tracking some oddly shaped fruit cake shipments crossing the border!

Well, if the Islamic Republic hadn't bagged the notorious S. Claus, Abe Foxman and his CAPO (Collaborationist Appeaser Press Organization) Air Defense Branch were waiting to nail the non-inclusive thought criminal as he entered US airspace.

My God, what have we gone? We didn't want to get along. We refused to sing kum-bah-yah. If we had only loved them--Santa would be alive tonight.

May God have mercy on our souls.

I did it and I'm not sorry. I warned him. No pony this year and things are gonna get ugly. Well, he just laughed. "Drill," he sez, "You've been a naughty boy again this year. No pony for you."

So I calls my bud Ahmadinejad and I sez "Look, foo. There's a CIA flight coming your way with a load of pork and nekkid goat pix to drop on Tehran. Go git 'em."

"Ah, Abu bin Drill," he sez, "What kind of nekkid goat pix are these?"

I knowed I'd durn near blowed it. "Not nekkid goat pix, Mahmoud, buddy," I sez. "I wuz wrong. Christmas cards from the Bushes. Yeh, that's right. And loads of those soft little candies that pull yer fillings out. And they ain't kosher, neither."

"Not kosher?" he sez, "This is intolerable! And no goat pix! We shall blow this kaffir out of the heavens forthwith!"

No pony for me, huh. Burn, baby.
