Santas Go on Rampage in New Zealand

© 2005 The Associated Press

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — A group of 40 people dressed in Santa Claus costumes, many of them drunk, rampaged through New Zealand's largest city, robbing stores and assaulting security guards, police said Sunday.

The rampage, dubbed "Santarchy" by local newspapers, began early Saturday afternoon when the men, wearing ill-fitting Santa costumes, threw beer bottles and urinated on cars from an Auckland overpass, said Auckland Central Police spokeswoman Noreen Hegarty.

She said the men then rushed through a central city park, overturning garbage containers, throwing bottles at passing cars and spraying graffiti on buildings.

One man climbed the mooring line of a cruise ship before being ordered down by the captain. Other Santas, objecting when the man was arrested, attacked security staff, Hegarty said.

The remaining Santas entered a downtown convenience store and carried off beer and soft drinks.

"They came in, said 'Merry Christmas' and then helped themselves," store owner Changa Manakynda said.

Alex Dyer, a spokesman for the group, said Santarchy was a worldwide movement designed to protest the commercialization of Christmas.

Three people were arrested and charged with drunkenness and disorderly behavior.
I imagine there was a lot of reindeer **** to clean up, too. :p

Maybe he's literally shocked. The cops had to use the tasers again Nermal?

Okay, I'll stop now. You know we love ya dearly. Your my favourite mod (that's close by). Oh, and I'm not the one making the sheep jokes either. That's gotta be a bit of a shock.

Don't tell me you remember this bit of dialogue (from memory :eek: )

Professor Quackenbush: "What, with these morons?"

Moe: "Yeah, but we are organized. Amalgamated Association of Morons. Local six and seven eighths (produces AAM button)"

All Stooges: (shouting) "We are morons tried and true, and we'll do our yell for you! *incoherent noises follow*


Ok, Ok, I watch the stooges too much, I admit it.

What's next? Easter bunnies ****ing in public?
Most bunnies do that sort of thing wherever they feel like it, but I'm not sure that the easter bunny is capable of procreation.
