When he’s not delivering presents, tending to his reindeer or checking Christmas lists, Santa Claus is often popping into local department stores for pictures with children in his grotto. But sometimes Santa just isn’t at his best, and the only thing he seems to be dishing out is a sackful of “nope.”

There is absolutely no joy in this photo: neither Santa nor the dazed-looking child look happy to be there. Two questions spring to mind, then: why does Santa’s face look plastic, and why does his moustache cover the bottom half of his face?

It’s understandable as to why Santa’s visitors here are standing behind him and not sitting on his lap: they are an elderly couple after all. What isn’t clear, however, is why Santa looks like he’s been battered. Perhaps it was a fall-out with a disgruntled elf?
