    Terrible, overpriced hipster juice. Buying that shit should be a sin.

    Wonder how many of these professional Christians do Christian shit over Christmas, like donate to a homeless shelter or volunteer at a soup kitchen. Or do they pour all of their energy into getting mad that Target's bags say "Happy Holidays."

    Did Jesus ever make snow angels? If not, he's was a Scrooge, by the critics' logic.

    This can't be real.

    Howard Schultz is Jewish, right?

    The next thing you know, they will be putting gefilte fish on the menu and serving up lattes made from the foamed blood of Christian children.

    There's a simultaneous uproar because the Roosevelt Field Mall doesn't have a Christmas tree in its Santa display.

    Of course it's not; it's from "Breitbart," a deranged right-wing bullshit hydrant.

    I saw a story about this. Two things:

    1) They did this really sterile thing for the Santa area. It was lame beyond belief. It looked like a white space ship interior. I have no idea what they were thinking. The photo looked like the home from the Jetsons.

    2) The story I saw said they charge $24.99 to $59.99 for pictures with Santa. When did that happen? I grew up right near that same mall in the 1980s, and one of my best memories of being a teenager was getting one of my friends to sit on Santa's lap for a photo (guy who went on to West Point; last guy in the world you would have ever imagined sitting on Santa's lap when he was 15 or 16; his parents loved that photo). I am certain it was free to get your photo taken with Santa -- and there was actually film involved back then! I have stepped foot in malls less than half a dozen times in my life since I was that age, but wtf -- $59.99 to get your picture taken with Santa!?!?!?
