MINNEAPOLIS (SPINews) -- A family of four is being held captive after their home was invaded by their giant inflatable Christmas yard figures.
Police identified the kidnappers as Santa, Snoopy and Frosty the Snowman.
"We don't know why they did it," said a cop from the city's Bad Taste Unit. "It shows how quickly these bastards can turn on you."
SPINews spotted a lighted Rudolph watching the scene from a giant inflatable creche.
"I don't know, dude," the reindeer shouted over "Silent Night" blaring through the manger. "Santa just wanted a snort of hot buttered rum."
"Beware a blown-up Bullwinkle on the rampage!" said the inflatable magi Balthazar. "Folks should be afraid. Very afraid."
