Santa Claus: Before he was fat.

9 12 2009

From L. Frank Baum, The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus, 1902.

I’ve haven’t read this one yet, but this five star review certainly makes it sound interesting:

Five stars for one of the freakiest stories ever written. And this by the same person who wrote the Wizard of Oz. Santa suckled on the teats of a lion… I think Baum discovered LSD way before Timothy Leary.

Does the original Wizard of Oz invoke drug references?
