BAD Santas

Businessmen Victor and Henry Smears did their best, to paraphrase PT Barnum, to "never underestimate people's bad taste." Their sorry bid at the Lapland New Forest Event in 2008 ended up with 13 months in jail this week. They are thought to have sold as much as st£1 million worth of advance tickets for which customers are their kids got to look at a sad reindeer, a couple of elves trying to dodge outraged visitors and a security guard warning people how crap the event actually was - he quit after getting punched by an irate punter. Read about it here. It would be funny, so long as you weren't one of the people who bought tickets.
