We suppose there’s supposed to be some sort of shock factor involved in learning there’s a children’s Christmas book called “Santa’s Husband,” in which Santa is black and gay, but frankly, now that we’re aware of it, we’d be more surprised if there weren’t such a thing, especially after seeing that “gaytivity scene” with two Josephs.

The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra caught a segment on CNN where they hyped the book and chatted with author Daniel Kibblesmith.

This is no small, boutique offering either; this comes direct from publishing giant HarperCollins, so expect to find it on bookstore shelves everywhere right next to the more traditional offerings.

In this witty and sweet illustrated Christmas tale, humor writer Daniel Kibblesmith introduces us to Mr. and Mr. Claus, and gives us a glimpse of their lives together. We see the Clauses sitting by the fire at their cozy North Pole home, vacationing at the beach, having an occasional disagreement, celebrating their wedding day, and comforting each other when some loudmouth people on television angrily dispute Santa’s appearance and lifestyle.

In the weeks before Christmas, Santa’s husband helps with all the pre-Christmas work, from double-checking lists, to feeding the reindeer (organic gluten-free grains, of course), to negotiating labor disputes with the restive workshop elves. At the height of toy-making season, he even fills in for his busy hubby at the mall to ensure every child can meet the Big Guy in the red suit, and give him their wish list.

Meh.
