Santa ‘Spends A Penny’ On Controversial ISIS Christmas Display

One homeowner’s Christmas lights have caused quite a stir in Maine: a light display complete with Santa â€œrelieving himself” on the fairylights spelling out ‘ISIS’. 

The anti-ISIS display was taken the wrong way by some neighbours who called police, thinking it was endorsing the terrorist organisation. 

But when police showed up, they spotted the weeing Santa. 

Sheriff William King Jr described the display as â€œpro-America” & did not make the house’s owner take the display down. 

“Sheriff’s deputies visited the home & the word â€˜ISIS’ is lit up bright & clear. What is not so clear is that Santa Claus is relieving himself on the words,” King said in a statement. 

“Deputies spoke with the homeowner explaining why the sheriff’s office took an interest in his holiday display & the homeowner stated he was going to rearrange the lights to clear up any doubts approximately his message.”

Certainly makes a alter from Father Christmas’s usual punishment regime of a lump of coal.
