Swimming Santa

Dorian organises events for local government. He's looking after Christmas this year. Thus I present to you an August brainwave come to full December fruition: Swimming Santa, in his red wetsuit.



How cool is this? I ask you!

It is very cool. Santa couldn't go swimming like that in the northern hemisphere now, could he? Are there photos of Santa diving into the water?

Lucy Tartan said...

Maybe he could in California, equatorial zones. There are about fifty photos of him striking poses, falling into the pool, and pouring water out of his gumboots.

Except it looks like his front is all twisted around -- is that a groin or an arse?

Lucy Tartan said...

It's a groin - with "something" stuffed down the wetsuit to simulate the compulsory Santa gut. I don't know what's in there. Dorian didn't say. Hate to think.

P.S. this is what I imagine RH looks like.

The Holt! I was going to take 4 and 6 to this. Tell Dorian he is a genius.

Thank you LC, I will tell him that, and I'm sure he'll be really pleased.

Scrivener said...

Wait, so that's actually Dorian in there? That is really, really cool! Tell Dorian I think he's a genius too.

Lucy Tartan said...

No it's not Dorian, he just thought of having a Swimming Santa at the two emunicipal swimming pools this year.

That's Harold Holt and Prahran, if anyone needs to witness this scene for themselves.

He's got this pool floaty beanbag thing stuffed down the front of his wetsuit, actually. It took lots of pushing and shoving to get it in there too! An XL wetsuit is not as big as you'd imagine. As for the genius stuff - make it count and write to council@stonnington.vic.gov.au!

There's something stuffed down my pants alright, and it's not a poorbox. No, but a poor thing all the same.
Hark, my little doodle, the nemesis of romance.

RH you only embarrass yourself with that type of comment.

You're on notice: three strikes & I'll ban your IP. This is strike one.

R H said...

Oh yes? Well listen here, embarrassment is what it costs to tell the truth. And that's cheap. In the end. So why pick on me, and my poor little doodle? Wake up to yourself!
