We got an awesome gift this year from RD Husband’s work. It’s the Poo-Pooing Santa.

People, I cannot tell you how hilarious this thing is to seven-year-old and four-year-old boys. I mean, gut busting.
We wouldn’t allow them to eat the candies, though. I thought maybe we could put those small Lego coins in there for a twist.
I found the packaging entertaining, too. I love reading packaging. I figure those people are really just trying to CYA, so they don’t think real people are ever going to read them.
See, even the Poo-Pooing Santa gets irregular sometimes. I wonder if he’s tried Activa? It was after RD Husband read “wash thoroughly before use” that he refused to let the boys eat the candies.
I love the contents– “sugar confectionery” sounds so elegant, when really they are poop-shaped and -colored candies. I also dig the instructions: “watch as Santa poops the sweets out of his bottom.” It’s like they’re writing it with a dainty hand over their mouths and a silly little giggle.
Of course, you knew it had to include Red dye #40, but red-apple acid? Strawberry BBA spice? What is this?
You know where it was made, right?
Somehow, “Guangdong” seems the most perfect place to make the pooping Santa. And look, it’s even got an expiration date.
May the Poo-Pooing Santa bring you joy and love this holiday season.
