No, it's not Jack Skellington this time...it's the Fat Police that have got Santa.
"Santa is being told to shift the pounds before Christmas - because the obese saint is failing to set a "good example" for children.

Santa has been told he must slim down, or face eviction from shopping centres at Christmas" (source)
Now I realize this is in the UK, but I'm sure the American Academy of Pediatrics will be soon to follow suit. I wonder if a skinny Santa will still be a jolly Santa?
