Remember the one about the Santas and the cab?

No, that doesn’t refer to some old joke – rather, to that 35th/Avalon crash that Creighton told us all about on Sunday morning. Last night, that post drew a comment from “lara7,” who included a Flickr link to the following photo:


Explanation from “lara7”:

I was one of the 3 Santas in the Cab- lady ran the red light by the KFC and plowed into the cab and another car. No one was hurt. But if you want coal in your stocking, hitting Santa’s cab is a sure way.

Now, you ask, what was the deal with all those people in Santa suits who didn’t exactly look like they’d just been spending their evening listening to tiny tots’ wish lists? Following a link from lara7’s photo, they appear to have been part of Santarchy 2007 (explained here).

    I definitely have to commend them for taking a cab home instead of driving :) …and glad no one was injured…

    Three santas who’d been sipping the nog.
    Were struck broadside by a ditz in a fog.
    They were given a scare.
    Said the cabbie no fare.
    This will surely make the West Seattle Blog.
