We've already given you Marc Whalen's shots and Liz Kreutz's scandalous video, but we wanted to share some more of the many ideals of Santa that were revealed on Saturday. Do we want these manifestations of our hopes and dreams to be lost to future generations? Darth Vader Santa, Barbie-riding-a-Transformer Santa, some kind of baby-garroting Santa, syringe-toting Santa, money-shot Santa, tall Santa, geriatric Santa, skipping Santa and I've-got-the-munchies Santa convey a message that transcends time: that no matter what kind of Santa you are, you are welcome to come to New York and drink more than is medically advisable.
