As patrons were shopping at the mall around Christmas, Bill and Fred heard a commotion coming from the area where Santa greets the children. "What do you suppose is going on?" asked Bill.
A nearby shopper told them that the new Santa Clause, an eccentric old fellow, had attached dozens of clocks, watches, and other various timepieces onto his big wide belt, circling his whole body.
"Let's go see him," said Fred. "He sounds like a nut, but it's worth checking out."
"Naw, I'm not interested," replied Bill.
"Why don't you want to see Santa with a bunch of clocks tied around his midriff?"
"I'll tell you why. It's a waist of time!"
