“This Christmas, I’d like a fat bank account and a slim body”

A jocular Christmas letter has been printed on many images:

“Dear Santa, This year please give me a fat bank account and a slim body. (Please don’t mix them up like you did last year!)”

The Santa letter was first printed on Twitter on December 10, 2010. Similar “fat bank account” and “slim body” words were printed in a “Prayer for 2011” to the newsgroup uk.people.silversurfers on January 12, 2011.

Dear santa. This year I wish for a slim body and a fat bank account. Not the opposite, like last year. Sincerely, Miss Finden

Dear Santa. This year I wish for a fat bank account, and a slim body. Not vice versa, like you obviously thought last Christmas. Thank you

Our eldest daughter (40 this year) sent this to my wife.

Dear God,

All I ask for in the year 2011 is a big fat bank account and a slim body.

Please don’t mix the two up again as you did last year.
