a Christmas tragedy

Since it's a snow day here in the Arctic North, Caroline is watching vintage Christmas cartoons streaming from Netflix. There is a late 40s/early 50s live action version of The Night Before Christmas. A non-convincing Santa with a pillow for a belly appears from the chimney. He lights up his corncob pipe and surveys the living room before getting to work.

As soon as the smoke began wafting from the pipe, Caroline turned to me shaking her head and said very matter-of-factly, "Santa's smoking. He's going to die."
