December 19, 2010. Millions of Kids are scarred for life.

Now, if you clicked on this link from google or wherever, and you are looking for Naked Santa in a G-string, in the shower, then GO AWAY! This blog is not what you are looking for.

That said, there is a photo of Naked Santa, in the shower, wearing a G-string. BUT IT’S NOT WHAT YOU THINK, you pervs. leave now pervs.  NOW!

The rest of you; here is the whole story.

So, we buy this really cool advent Calendar from Walmart… “what?”.. An advent calendar? oh right. Ok here:

Advent calendar essplaned.

SO we buy this really cool advent calendar from Walmart for Andrew. The best part is it’s a Lego advent calendar. I don’t think you can find a cooler secular advent calendar out there.


So, on Dec 1st we opened the first door, not knowing what to expect. We got a freaking AWESOME snowman!


We were pretty stoked to see what was next. So from Dec 2nd to Dec 16th, all is good and great and generally pretty amazing little Lego gifts every morning. Here is the coolness!

Cool Toys! (the sword came with a little kid, that I posed elsewhere in these pics). The wagon in the middle is actually a train car, that we think has more coming in the next couple days. Isn’t that fire truck the cutest little Lego you have ever seen?


There was a Business man complete with Briefcase! and comb over!


A Table with chairs, and on another day a Lady with a Loaf of bread! Yeah! French Bread! The coffee cup came from another set. I thought it belonged in the staged photo shoot.


A Fireplace one day, then a sofa the next. Cozy huh? Serge seems to be really enjoying it!


An axe and a log sled (with Logs) I can’t remember where the hard hat dude came from. The rat actually came in the Lego Train we have.


Skateboard park and Skateboard dude, complete with helmet!


Puppy and cat, along with a food dish and 2 wieners. Lego wieners.


And my 2nd and 3rd favourite items! These are unreal cool aren’t they?


Ok, then on the 17th day, we get this. I didn’t know what it was. I thought shower at first, but it couldn’t be. Why on earth would there be a shower in a Lego advent calendar. Is it a street light? There must be more to it coming in the next day. must be. I was right.


On Dec 17th. Naked Santa. Seriously. His beard covers his moobs. And I think he is wearing a g-string or he is a sumo wrestler in the off season. Ok, so this little naked Santa, along with the scrub brush confirmed that the Dec 16th advent gift was actually a shower. Seriously, do kids aged 4+ really need to see this? Or are there a limited number of these that were specially made, like Wonka golden tickets!?


For your viewing pleasure. Naked Santa in the shower wearing a g-srting.


Wash, then rinse.

Santa is a prankster too! Here he is showing his good side out the window of the Lego train.


Ok, enough of that. Well, maybe there’ll be a naked Mrs. Claus and a Haystack coming out of the calendar in the next few days!

Don’t forget to share my viral video with all your International Friends. I’m trying for Japan, but I’ll take Poland, Australia and anywhere else! Help me push this sucker over a million by Christmas!

Thanks! Oh, by the way, I refused all the shoddy money offers that came with internet success. I just couldn’t bring myself to help sell the amazing pile of shitty products that wanted to advertise on my video. Very shoddy stuff indeed. Like I said on my facebook today, ‘It’s like winning the lottery, except there is no money’. Still, it’s been incredible fun!

O Canada

My boy loves him a good hockey game, and what happens before every hockey game? Yup. the National Anthem.

*warning for low bandwidth users (you campers), this is just over a minute of video.*

This was at the Calgary Hitmen Teddy Bear Toss game, where everyone brings a bear and throws it on the ice after the home teams first goal. I’ll have the entire report and the full video up tomorrow hopefully… meanwhile, here is the report from last years game.
