A bad Santa was bagging cash right and left from kiddies and their parents while panhandling in a prime spot outside Macy’s in Herald Square on Sunday — hitting them up for $5 a pop to take a single photo with him.
The fake fat man held a Christmas choir bell in one hand — and a red knapsack full of cash and clothes in the other — as he asked for “tips’’ and “donations.’’
I can’t quite parse this term, “fake fat man”. Does the reporter mean that, beneath that role-polly figure lies a lean, hungry man? Or does he mean a fake Santa – is there any other kind?
Either way, is the panhandler any worse than any of the Democrats currently running for office?
