Funny Santa letter with online links is a hoax

Cyber-space has been abuzz the past few days over a hoax Santa letter penned by a humour writer in Brooklyn, New York.

Zack Poitras at The Inclusive, but it resurfaced after being tweeted on Sunday by Twitter user

The adorable crayon-written letter is painstakingly blunt as pretend child "Sam" asks Santa for a number of toys, all by writing out long URLs for each online item. His first toy on the wish list is a $20 remote control toy car on Amazon, and interspersed in between eight other URLs, he randomly request a "new puppy."

The pièce de résistance? He ends his letter with a request for $50 cash.

"This is an accurate description of my Christmas wish list...and I'm 24," jokes one commentator.
