Look what he's done to me. I mean, just LOOK r;[

All I said, right, was some mild off-the-cuff remark about its coming up for the Season of Goodwill and wouldn't it be nice to have at least a sight of my jelly bean back pay, no pressure, thank you very much, and what do I get? Stealth Santa-ed. that's what.

I mean, look at it. I'm starting up a Mods Union and see about this sort of flagrant abuse.

I'll get him sorted out, you mark my words. All a chap does is ask for what's his and what happens? He gets humiliated, that's what. In my day it'd be pistols at dawn, I can tell you that much. Spose I'd best dress the dog up with a set of comedy antlers to complete the effect...

Could have been worse, could have spelt santa wrong, and you'd have ended up with a picture with horns, trident and tail; come to think of it .........

Exactly, Brad. There must've been all sorts of handsome, dashing people dressed as Santa performing a variety of heroic acts he could have chosen from (though none come to mind at the minute, to be fair) and who does he choose? Uncle flamin Albert! With teefs!

Not happy, and expecting a ransom note for additional jelly beans any minute now, but not even a single one, not even a green one, will pass from these halls. No, sir.

Lol,

I'm a moderator on a large game forum and we have been known to mess with each others avatars on occasion.

We go down the festive route each year as well.

It creates a good bond between the mods and the users where it humanises us a bit.

My current avatar on there.

I may be the main instigator though.
