Santa pees on ISIS in American Christmas lights display

In happened in Limerick. Not that Limerick.

POLICE IN LIMERICK, Maine were called to a house after someone spotted ISIS (Islamic State) written in Christmas lights outside the property.

York County Sheriff William King told the Portland Press Herald police were called after a passerby thought the homeowner might be an “ISIS sympathiser”.

They did not spot the Santa Claus who was ‘peeing’ on the ISIS sign.

“Sheriff’s deputies visited the home and the word ‘ISIS’ is lit up bright and clear. What is not so clear is that Santa Claus is ‘relieving’ himself on the words,” King said.

He added that the man said he would “rearrange the lights to clear up any doubts about his message”.

King told the New York Daily News: ”He probably should’ve used yellow lights … he used white lights. You couldn’t really distinguish what Santa was doing.”

He added that the homeowner “doesn’t like what’s going on in the world, so he wanted to make his own little political statement”.
