  4. This is called IRL trolling. We all know santa has nothing to do with kids being unhealthy. Some brandy and christmas food is nothing compared to the shit everyone eats on the other 364 days of the year.

  6. Its a joke Joyce:

    THE Australian academic who branded Santa Claus a global ambassador for poor health and risk-taking has been hit by an avalanche of criticism.

    Dr Nathan Grills says he was only partially serious and his paper, published by the British Medical Journal, was otherwise aimed at delivering some festive season "comic relief".

    "Most of my 'Santa - A public health pariah?' article was meant to be tongue-in-cheek. It's a Christmas spoof," Dr Grills, who is public health fellow at Monash University's Department of Epidemiology and Preventative Medicine

  7. Yes, Christmas is a favourite time for the publication of tongue-in-cheek "research" in various journals.
