Junkfood Science: Save Santa! — “Keep Santa Fat!” campaign

December 10, 2007

Save Santa! — “Keep Santa Fat!” campaign

The hand wringing began months ago as anti-obesity interests began calling for slimmer Santas “to set a good example for children.” In Britain, shopping center Santas are even being sent to gyms, with Bluewater shopping center in Greenhithe, Kent, going so far as to establish a Santa boot camp.

People have had enough of this insanity. A campaign to “Keep Santa Fat!” has been launched on behalf of the North Pole’s finest. At the same time, it turns the holiday focus where it belongs — on the good deeds of Santas everywhere. The website is loads of fun in mocking the craziness of the lengths the government and other obesity interests are going to over increased waistlines. Best of all, besides making a good point, it’s for a good cause. For every signature on the petition to Keep Santa Fat, one pound of food will be donated to America’s Second Harvest food banks to feed the hungry.
