Santa Sacked for Being Naughty, Not Nice

(AP) - LONDON-The famous British department store Harrods said Wednesday it had fired a Santa Claus who made "inappropriate" comments to adult visitors.

Harrods said it was able to identify the rude Santa - known in Britain as Father Christmas - and terminated his seasonal contract.

"There is no excuse for causing any level of complaint amongst our customers, and even if the remarks were made in good humor, we cannot condone behavior that offends our customers," Harrods said in a statement.

"It's also very sad that these incidents may ruin the enchantment of the grotto for our younger customers who still hold dear the fantasy that there is only one Father Christmas." The grotto is the area in the store where Santa receives visitors.

Harrods only said the Santa's comments were "inappropriate," and that they were not racial.

    The death penalty makes me nervous. It makes me nervous because there is always a chance the wrong person is being executed.
