TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (93) . . . The Sequel!

This week's bonus joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of the Associated Press (from Friday, December 8; link good at time of posting):
Paula Barstow's singing Santa stopped singing after holiday vandals pulled out his power cord and ran over his head.

. . . .

Barstow said Santa was in his usual spot on her driveway Tuesday night. She awoke Wednesday and found him mowed down.

"They had to come all the way in and just run him over, back and forth," said Barstow, who cried as she described the damage.

Santa "was a neat old guy," she said. He also waved and shouted "Merry Christmas."
