When you were a kid, did you ever wonder about I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus? I did. When I’d try to ask questions about the lyrics, they would be dismissed with “Oh. It’s only a song.”

I knew it was more than a peck on the cheek with the tickle under the chin, because the father not knowing about it was an issue. And it was under the mistletoe.

I guess that was as far as the songwriters would go, because there was never a Mommy’s Making out with Easter Bunny. I guess crossing species lines was past the limit even for character kissing.
