    Can you say "Grinch"? ;)

    A wind-surfing Santa took an unintended ride Sunday when strong winds took him across the Niagara River and the Canadian border.

    For 18 years, fitness instructor John Fulton has donned a Santa suit to sail the river at Christmas. He said he performs the annual stunt in support of the homeless.

    He was promptly arrested in Buffalo by the United States Border Patrol.

    Mr. Fulton usually departs from his home town of Fort Erie, Ont., and arrives back at shore on the Canadian side. But stiff winds and currents pushed him to the American side of the river and into the arms of U.S. border guards.

    He was taken into custody, then shipped back to Canada after he agreed to sign a form stating he had illegally entered the United States.

    What I want to know was where was the Coasties and their 50 Cal Machine Guns, we can't have suicidal Canadians dressed as Santa Claus trying to enter the USA illegally. They could be suicide bombers or something, I mean they are from a third world country. ;)

    Techie2000 The crowd would sing:

    Well, although he was doing it for a good cause, he did technically illegally enter the country. It's just sad that our law is only flexible for the rich...

    What flexible for the Rich? The gave him a ticket and transported him back to the border, with his fricking windsurfer board. Get real Techie, the guy was "only in custody" till they could get his stuff and identify him and give him a ride to the border.

    You know, if I was homeless, this moron's wind-surfing stunt would sure make me feel so much warmer and less hungry. I'm glad there are plenty of people doing meaningless and irrelevent things this holiday season 'in support' of the less fortunate. Hey idiot! Sell the Santa suit and give the money to a shelter, spend the time used for wind surfing as Santa in said shelter as volunteer.
