Last year at Christmas time, I dressed up in my Santa suit and after greeting my children, my wife asked the kids if they wanted to take Santa to a relative's house.
They said yes.
So I got in the minivan and went to the relative's house. While at their house, my son started misbehaving, so I said in the most bass voice I could muster.
"Son, you better behave or Santa won't bring you any presents."
My innocent 5 year old son turned to my wife and said,"Mommy Santa's walking home."
