Sleigh Sponsors

What would Santa’s elves say if the big guy’s sleigh became the victim of Christmas capitalism? Let us know in this holiday edition of Caption the Cartoon — and feel free to be both naughty and nice. As always, our editors will pick one to add to the official Caption the Cartoon Winners’ Gallery.

    I thought our union would have been the last to disappear. The little guy is just a stooge of the corporate giants. I guess we’ll work for one of them now… Merry Christmas and welcome to …

  • MysticJanet

    Not sure what’s wrong with this sleigh; it’s not homespun or something?

  • P.W. Fenton

    “Without those endorsements he would get more than 20 miles from the International Dateline.”

    Another hostile takeover by a hedgefund!

    this is bad but even worse is the GE Logo on Rudolphs nose

    Why do you say . . . “if” the big guy’s sleigh . . .

    Thing is, this’ll only bring in enough to re-hire half the raindeer.

  • Chance

    Jingle coins. Jingle coins. Jingle to the bank. Oh what fun it is to ride to higher profits tonight.

  • Durango Dude

    Sir – the deer thought the logos were instructions – so Santa had lots of pellets shooting at him.

  • Anonymous

    Well, I guess we won’t be giving toys away any more. But where are we going to mount the credit card machine?

    Guess the reindeer left when the tattoo artist arrived to put the corporate sponsors logos on them.

  • EvasiveEsther

    Yikes! Looks as if our jobs have been outsourced!

    And the whole thing is towed by a blinking John Deere 5000

  • American Kiwi

    I guess Santa did go over the fiscal cliff.

  • Luke

    Do you think that we could start putting corporate logos on our representatives and senators?

  • Polonius

    Replacing the venerable Mr. Claus this year is Danica Patrick…

  • Anonymous

    The NRA wants their logo on there somewhere since they’re sitting shotgun.

    The deer have walked off the job. Do we have to pull this out of trouble?

  • http://www.facebook.com/RJJG52 Robert Gaudio

    Now I know why Santa wanted me to sew a large Nike swoosh on his lapel!

    ♫ It’s beginning to look a lot like commerce, everywhere you go… ♫

    “These are the easy ones. How are we gonna explain the VAGASIL logo to the kiddies?”

  • baba

    Last time I saw him, he was asking Papa John about Obamacare.

  • Steve Ohno

    Yeah, well, it’s not as bad as Viagra getting exclusive rights to the Cross at Easter. Something about wanting to keep the erection in Resurrection.

    They stole Christmas and they need our help to sell it back.

    Dude. You know what this means… first all this and then our asses are gonna be canned so Amazon can get our gig. Expletive!

    Well, yeah! But will it fly in Peoria?

  • Stephan Vertal

    Just another phase since Santa is already dressed in red from a past Coca-cola campaign.

  • http://www.facebook.com/susan.scerbo Susan Scerbo

    Aww, those corporate tricksters… A Christmas sleigh-t of hand!

  • Questor1

    Looks like the Corporate types convinced Santa to quit being the “Spirit of Giving”, and absconded with all the toys we made for the kids!

    Thugs put graffiti on Sant’s sleigh; break out the paint to make it simple and silent again.

    I haven’t seen chrome like that since the 50′s!

    “No kidding, Blitzen said the FAA didn’t like the way they took care of the reindeer waste. Comet decided to give them something to aim at, and Fred’s his co-pilot this year! Too funny!”

  • berrnadene

    There really must be a war on Christmas!

  • 47%er

    Yeah. You’re right. There is no room for the toys, but it doesn’t matter since the 1% took ‘em anyway.

  • http://www.facebook.com/craig.paterson.182 Craig Paterson

    This gives “Ho, ho, ho” a whole new meaning!

  • pasqueflower

    I overheard Santa mention downsizing, but I thought we were safe — we’re small already!
    Guess I missed something….

  • Anonymous

    I’ve had it with this commercialization of Christmas. I’m thinking…dental school. You with me?

  • Ricardo

    Santa’s a Republican???

  • http://www.facebook.com/mark.reynolds.106 Mark Reynolds

    Uh, I don’t know, but don’t you think this presents some sort of conflict of interest?

  • Ricardo

    Debacle South of 34th Street….

  • Coozoe

    Wait till you see his suit.

    If you think this is bad, wait till you see what they asked him to wear this year.

    “I did, I checked it… twice! Apparently, it’s only naughty if you’re prosecuted…”

  • Grinnin

    It can’t fly without da-dear-Deers… Who unhitched the t-t-TEAM!? Are the da-dear-Deers at a tea party?

  • Johnsonrails

    So is this the naughty or nice sleigh?

  • Need Newway

    Dear Santa: Is this what will happen when your home melts?
