Should Santas in Malls be required to lose weight?

Should Mall Santas Lose a Few?

A mall in England has ordered its Santas to slim down before greeting children this holiday season. The mall will be running a month-long boot camp for overweight Santas who will be working there leading up to Christmas. Officials hope this will send a message to kids that while Santa's belly shook like a bowl full of jelly then, it's called abdominal obesity now and it's unhealthy.

I think it is a rather interesting concept. I am on the fence about how I feel about modernizing Santa. I mean I always loved Santa as much as the next kid, but I never personally had any aspirations to look like him.

What do you guys think about requiring mall Santas to lose a few pounds before the holiday season gets into full swing?
