Santa loses his way in China’s smog. A Christmas joke in a similar vein has been making the rounds on Weibo:
Santa Claus Denies Rumor: There’s a rumor that I fell in the smog while delivering presents in China, that no one has dared to help me up, and that I remain prone in the snow while all my gifts have been looted. I am outraged by these claims. In truth, as a supernatural being, I do not dare go to China. The people there can joyfully celebrate Christmas Eve in even the thickest smog. They’re the ones who live supernaturally. I hereby declare this!
