Bad Santa!

2:15 PM -- The Associated Press tells a tale of Christmas merriment:

    A college student accused of shoving a pumpkin pie into the face of a shopping-mall Santa Claus has been charged with misdemeanor assault.

Oof. No doubt that's going on The List...

    Clint Westwood, 22, said he "lightly smooshed" the pie into the man's face Wednesday and shouted, "What do you think of that, Santa?"

    He said that after the pie ruckus, he expected to approach Santa for a signature on a film-release form, but police arrived first.

    "It's a good thing he didn't wait around, because I think Santa would have laid him out," said Sgt. Travis Welsh of the Missoula Police Department.

They grow Santas tough in Montana.

    Westwood said he and companions had waited for a girl about 15 years old to finish sitting on Santa's lap before the pie hit his face, "but then we just decided it would be funnier if she was still sitting there."

Funnier, still, that she's been sitting there for about eight years past her prime.
