Santa's a "Dirty Ba _ tard" . . . .

From the AP:

Microsoft Spikes Dirty Santa
Dec 5, 6:03 PM (ET) - By JESSICA MINTZ

SEATTLE (AP) - Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) quickly shut down Santa Claus' Web privileges after it found out the automated elf it created for kids to instant message with was talking naughty, not nice.


The holiday cheer soured this week when a reader of a United Kingdom-based technology news site, The Register, reported that a chat between Santa and his underage nieces about eating pizza prompted Santa to bring up oral sex.

One of the publication's writers replicated the chat Monday. After declining the writer's repeated invitations to eat pizza, a frustrated Santa burst out with, "You want me to eat what?!? It's fun to talk about oral sex, but I want to chat about something else."

The exchange ended with the writer and Santa calling each other "dirty bastard."


Sohn said Microsoft was not aware that the Santa code included the foul language, but insisted the company did not suspect an employee prank.

Microsoft disabled Santa Tuesday. On Wednesday, appeared to be online in one reporter's Messenger contact list, but Santa did not respond to her messages.

Oh, No!!

Now how do I order my "Send bush Back to Crawford" gift certificate ? ? ? ?
