Respectful Insolence

It’s that time of year again: Santarchy

Too bad I can’t make it back to Detroit this weekend. In fact, it’s worse than that; I’m on call. Why? Because Saturday is Santarchy night. Basically a bunch of people dress up like Santa and go barhopping. Much drinking and debauchery ensue. If you happen to live in the Detroit area, here’s a little test to see if you’re “Santa enough” to participate. Sadly for me, maybe it’s a good thing that I won’t be there:

You have scored a 100.

While not completely lame, you do make for a weak Santa. And while some might think that should exclude you from participating in Santarchy, it’s just possible that by attending you will actually discover your true, inner, fully dis

functional, Santa.

In the meantime, check out pictures of carnage from past editions of Detroit Santarchy from 2003, 2004, and 2005.

    We just had Santacon here in SF last week-end. Check out the santas going down Lombard St (crookedest street).

    I thought Detroit just had Santarsonists.

    I got 145, and that still wasn’t enough. They did tell me I needed some more thinking juice, so I’m going to see to that and maybe take the test again. It doesn’t really help considering I’m south of the Mason Dixon line, but what can you do?

    It would be so much cooler if it was Satanarchy and everyone went around dressed like Beezelbub or Lucifer.
