There’s Santa … and then there’s Santa.

One is good for little more than scaring the bejeezus out of your offspring, which is hella fun to watch and all but if you didn’t bring a change of pants for your progeny then you’re probably in for a pretty shitty afternoon.

secret-santaThe other type is a bit harder to spot but an encounter with one is much more fulfilling. [That’s the ‘who’]

These ‘secret Santas’ get their mitzvah on by doing what others don’t, won’t or, well, just can’t.
They give.
And they give big.
::: Mazal, mazal,  y’all! ::: 

A couple of them recently doled out $20,000 in $100 bills to folks in Illinois, Kansas and Missouri. [That’s the ‘what’ ‘when’ and ‘where’]

“The only condition,” the Missouri angel said , “is that you do something nice for someone. Pass it on.”
::: Listen UP, greedy bankers, AIG bastards and other beggars hoarding bailout bucks meant to help the masses!  ::: 

The Kansas Santa was a protégé of famous Kansas City undercover gift giver, Larry Stewart, who died of cancer nearly two years ago.

Stewart roamed city streets each December handing out hundred-dollar bills to anyone who looked like they might need a lift.

His legacy lives on … and it’s a good great thing because, let’s face it –  recipients will not be hard to find in this New Great Depression.

[… and the ‘why’?]
“It’s not about the man, it’s not about the money, it’s about the message,” Kansas Santa said.

“Anyone can be a secret Santa with a kind word, gesture, a helping hand.” 

[I get it — ‘why not’]
And so, if you’ll excuse me …

    Giving a helping hand is okay…paying for a helping will get you arrested

    TYPEWRITER!!!!!!! I’ve missed you!!!
    Kiss kiss hug hug – smooches 4EVAR!!!

    And, well, even though I don’t do ‘personal’ here — yes, it was a more than just a nice treat to see Sata … errr… Saban slapped with the loser tag 🙂
    (Thank you, sir! Can I have another?!?)

    Now WE just need to get ourselves a COACH!

    TYPEWRITER!!!!!!! I’ve missed you!!!

    Wow, I love all this love 🙂 Maybe I can get you to come protect me from all the white supremacists at my open mike this evening… I’ll even sing “All You Need Is Love” in honour of our fallen hero…

    And, well, even though I don’t do ‘personal’ here

    Whatever, Miss Alabama 🙂 You’ve given out all kinds of biographical details lately in chatting with your ‘Bama buddies, so I’m not letting any cats out of the bag here…

    Now WE just need to get ourselves a COACH!

    Are there any more Bowdens you can try? 🙂 (Don’t mind me, you know what a horrible season my school just had — worst in 40 years. They ought to name a street after Michigan in Morgantown…)

    Not true!!! I can admit to being from Alabama — there’s no(t much) shame in that!
    hehe

    And I KNOW you did not just invoke the hated Bowden name?!?
    Oh horror!!
    I don’t even want an association of that name (you listening, Jimbo?!? — stay at FSU!!)
