FFfAW-Week of December 15, 2015 – Knuckles

When Knuckles was arrested it put an abrupt end to his Christmas job as the shopping centre Santa Claus.

It was a shock to all at the centre because Knuckles was a great Santa, loved by kids and parents alike.

Every morning during the Christmas period he would cycle to work dressed in his Christmas suit waving to all who recognised him.

In the coming weeks it was revealed that Knuckles was in fact the notorious Weekend Axe Murderer.

Who would have thought Knuckles the caring and loving Santa could be one and the same?

The revelation sent shock waves through the community, how many children had sat on his lap, remarked about the axe beside his chair and no one never thought twice about it.

In future it was agreed the shopping centre Santas would be screened more thoroughly.

    Funny one! Yeah, the axe by the Santa chair might have been a clue. Also, the name “Knuckles,” I would think! πŸ™‚

  2. Oh my gosh, that is chilling! I would hate to think my child sat in the lap of a Santa that was an ax murderer! LOL! I imagine the mall owners were shocked to discover this. Yes, they had better screen their future Santa’s better. πŸ˜€ Great story Michael!

    Wow! I would hope they would be screening more! What a twist. Good story!

  4. Wonder what he used for a disguise when it wasn’t the now endless Christmas season.

  5. Talk about a multiple personality.
    Ho ho ho the jolly fella and axe axe the nightmare next door literally.

    Knuckles…hm…that might have been a clue if the people screening for the Santa Claus job had paid more attention. πŸ™‚

    Not exactly a tale I’d read to my grandchildren on Christmas Eve, Michael! πŸ˜… I have always kept my distance from mall Santas. Especially the ones with shifty eyes.

    😱 I guess one never REALLY knows – eh?

  9. Ouch! What a naughty Santa.
