Thanks to a 9th-grade teacher in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, America now has its Official Stupidest Meme for the 2013 holiday season. Megyn Kelly's teevee contribution to the idiocy was certainly the first and loudest, but an unnamed teacher at Cleveland High School gave "Don’t you know Santa Claus is white?" its definitive real-world test drive last week, mocking (ironically?) an autistic black kid wearing a Santa hat & beard to school. As far as we're concerned, that's all the tipping point needed: 2013 is now the Year Of White Santa. Now let's all go make some children cry!

What happened was that kids were told they could come to school dressed up as Santa, an elf or a reindeer; ninth-grader Christopher Rougier came to school wearing a Santa hat and beard, and the teacher reportedly said, "Don't you know Santa Clause [sic] is white? Why are you wearing that?" According to an Albuquerque TV station, the incident left Christopher so upset that he was no longer interested in decorating the family's Christmas tree.

The teacher, according to the school district, has been disciplined, although the school won't say how; Christopher's parents have had him removed from the teacher's class, and his father, Michael Rougier, is pressing for the teacher to be fired.

So far, no word on whether the teacher came up with the brilliant observation that a black kid can't be Santa on his own, or if he was inspired by Megyn Kelly, or what. Maybe it was "just a joke" and the teacher was trying out this newfangled "irony" business. (Honestly, why on earth else would he say it? Oh right, there is the possibility that he just sucks.) Unfortunately, "irony" isn't a terrific excuse when you're making developmentally disabled kids cry, and "archness" not generally the best form of communication with same. Your Wonket has heard this is the case.

In any case, Santa was definitely white, come on.

Barack Obama delivered his first major address of his post-presidency Tuesday at an event in Johannesburg, South Africa, honoring the 100th anniversary of Nelson Mandela's birth. It was -- as you'd expect for the occasion -- appropriately dignified and thoughtful. It was also every bit as inspiring as you might expect from the first black American president speaking in memory of the first black president of a nation that for most of its modern history was synonymous with apartheid. Let's take some time to bask in what an actual world leader sounds like, shall we?

Guess what Vladimir Putin's getting for Christmas! He's been dropping hints, and you know the Big Orange Baboon can't say no to him for some unknown reason. Gonna be so cute when little Vladdy stumbles down the stairs in his PJs, brushes the sleep from his eyes, and finds MONTENEGRO all wrapped up with a big bow under the Christmas tree. Adorbz!

Oh, but we are to kid! Just a little levity as President Treasonweasel slams a sledgehammer into the international framework that kept us out of another world war for the past 70 years. So why are we suddenly talking about a tinyass country whose chief export appears to be consonants? (Sorry, Montenegro. But your Predsjednik Crne Gore is Milo Đukanović, and your capital city is Cetinje, which is just cheating at Scrabble.)

Well! Donald Trump just got out of a two-hour, closed-door meeting with Vladimir Putin, whose government tried to stage a coup in 2016 to assassinate Đukanović and stop Montenegro's accession to the European Union. Which might not be a coincidence!
