US Air Force Tweets Santa Claus Isn’t Real, Immediately Regrets It

”Ok maybe we took that one too far“

The U.S. Air Force weighed in on the existence of Santa Claus in a tweet on Wednesday, suggesting that maybe it’s time official accounts stop trying to be cute.

The tweet came in response to accounts for Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri and Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota, which had been trading barbs about which base was better.

“We didn’t want to have to do this, but if you 2 can’t get along we must…Santa will bring you nothing this year…becuase he isn’t real!” the Air Force account wrote in response. This was the second warning for the two bases after the account previously threatened, “no television for a week!”

The Santa Claus denialism lasted all of three hours before the account retracted the claim and issued a mea culpa: “Ok, maybe we took that one too far. Santa is real. Thankfully you 2 are better at deterrence than we are at comedy.”

Well thank god that’s been settled.
