I might get my man card taken away, but I thought this was pretty cool of my wife to do. She bought me a Santa Claus pipe ornament. And I like it!

Actually, pipes are very much a part of the historic image of Santa Claus, thanks to several authors, but primarily Clement Clarke Moore and Thomas Nast. I am surprised that the nannies have not been more focused in eliminating the pipe from these historic writings and images.

In the poem, "A Visit From St. Nick," more commonly known as "Twas the Night Before Christmas," Moore endears our favorite pastime with the line "The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth, And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath."

Nast on the other hand was a political cartoonist, and solidified the clay pipe in the modern image of St. Nick. Here is a copy of his most famous illustration, with Santa sporting a clay churchwarden.

Santa looks stoned in the drawing.

No wonder milk and cookies are appreciated!

You did'nt REALLY think he smoked tobacco in that pipe did you? You'd have to be stoned to do what he does in one night and just respond o it all with a "HO,HO,HO" Twisted Evil
