Gail Farrelly grew up in The Bronx and now resides in Bronxville, NY. Having a doctorate in accounting from George Washington University, she’s taught in several universities and published numerous articles in business and academic journals. Learning about the murderous politics of academic life turned her mind to crime. The fictional kind, of course! Her first mystery, “Beaned In Boston,” in which a lecherous professor perishes even though he was well published, was named to the Washington Irving Book Selection List. Her short story, “Even Steven,” was nominated for a Derringer Award. Gail writes spoofs for the Yonkers Tribune Webaper,, and for a British website, Gail shares a website,, with her sister Rita, also a mystery writer.

Merry Christmas! To add to the joy of the season, starting today, December 15th, the Yonkers Tribune will publish a series of five fun Christmas spoofs. One every other day, leading up to the big day. Of course Santa Claus is in each one. Who else?

Article I

The rumors of holiday hanky panky are flying faster than Santa’s sleigh on Christmas Eve. Several tabloids are reportedly ready to publish motel records from different parts of the world that would show Santa to be an unfaithful spouse.

Another critic pointed out, “Sure, everyone gets attention from Santa. But he does have his favorites. He has that line: And to ALL a good night. But I’ve noticed that when he says it, he’s always winking at the most gorgeous young ladies in the crowd.”

Santa does have his defenders though. Chief Reindeer Rudolph claims he’s never witnessed any inappropriate behavior on the part of his boss. “Well, what did you expect him to say?” claimed one of the other reindeer. “With that red nose, where would he find another job?” 

Frosty the Snowman also said that he had complete confidence in Santa’s fidelity to his wife. But then, as one critic pointed out, Frosty, for fear of melting, stays away from situations that may be hot, hot, hot!

So far, at least in public, Mrs. Claus is standing by her man. “It’s just a bunch of rumors,” she has said. On the other hand, Mrs. Claus has reportedly told friends: “If I find out Santa is into sexting, I’m outta here.”

  1. re: “If I find out Santa is into sexting” What, an old-timer like Santa having a Smart Phone? Nah, he’s been gettin’ around without one just fine for centuries. I don’t see him sporting ear-buds and perpetually sucking on a water bottle either. He’s too much about tradition.
