Mike's faith in Santa is shaken by some idiot collecting for charity. Let's see how Lynn explains this one.

(Strip Number 348, Original Publication Date, 26 November 2011)

Panel 1: We find Mike and Lawrence at the uptown shops; as they head to Philpotts, Lawrence points out some guy in a Santa suit collecting for some generic charity. Since he's a kid, he's really excited when he says "Hey, Mike!! There's Santa!!"

Panel 2: Lawrence says "HiSantawhatchadoingareyoureallySanta?" and Mike asks him where his sleigh is.

Panel 3: Since they're getting in the way of his collecting money from people who actually have it, the man tells the two of them to scram.

Panel 4: A down-cast Mike says that he doesn't think he believes anymore.

Summary: Since Mike is an idiot raised by idiots, his losing faith won't be seen as a part of growing up but as yet another trick his parents are playing on him to make a fool of him.
