I think it was censored by a new writer or something. Gave up a lot of things. This PC stuff is getting out of hand.

Nanny State? From the article: “She mortgaged her house and sunk $200,000 into her telling of the 189-year-old holiday poem, touring the states to promote it ahead of its September release.”

Ah what an pleasurable aroma that pipe Santa was smoking put out! Probably the best tobacco that could be found! IMHO nothing like puffing on a good pipe stoked with a treasured tobacco!

The political correctees probably wouldn’t have a problem with Santa having a joint hanging from his lips like some sort of red-suited Barack Obama.

This is so stupid. Just tell people he’s smoking weed and it will be OK.
