Santa Claus Gets Parking Ticket In Downtown Los Angeles
If Santa didn't bring you everything you wanted, consider how bad his week had been.
Old St. Nick had a run in with the wonderful city employees at the L.A. Department of Transportation.
And you know who was naughty.
TMZ reports that Santa Claus' car was actually issued a parking ticket. WTF?

The website says it happened Thursday, possibly as Santa was running errands downtown.
And it happened fast enough -- LADOT employs real-live ninjas -- that Santa came out toward the end of the ticket-writing, apparently.
It seems he disputed the action to no avail. Apparently parking officers don't speak the language of good will, peace on earth, and all that nonsense that doesn't put cash in the city's coffers.
Somehow Santa carried on and still delivered those gifts you didn't want.
