Smokey is Santa Claus?????
Well it fits, because Smokey seems to judge who's good and bad, and there are lists made of the good and bad too. :-) It's probably just a CGI fluke, combined with that condition of our brains to see recognizable objects in random formations...there's a word for that but it escapes me at the moment. Otherwise, maybe TPTB just pulled a little trick on us if we could notice it.
