Apparently this poor 50 ft. Santa in (oddly enough) Santa Catarina Brazil accidentally caught fire.  Word spread across the Internet and this became an international sensation.

Though it's kinda hard to see in this video, Santa's in there somewhere...

Okay, I get it.  Santa is a dream and it is bad to kill a dream.  But, holy crap.  Do ya have to chop his head off?  Show him bloody, drunk, safely adorned for copious amounts of sex, burning... Okay, I can deal with that.  But decapitated?!?!?!

Aside from something to show to a really bad kid as a reason why he will be getting a bag of toe nail clippings for Christmas, I can't envision a reason for a decapitated Santa...

Though that is quite a good reason.
