With Christmas less than two weeks away, Twitter users are putting the finishing touches on their wish lists and gifting the art of snark, judging from the responses to the #TextSanta hashtag.

Although the topic is trending in the United States right now, it stemmed from a British television program of the same name that aired last night. The ITV special aired right after the popular The X-Factor finale.

According to Topsy, just a bit over 3,000 tweets were counted using the #TextSanta hashtag.

Americans are now putting their spin on the hashtag this afternoon, calling to mind Snoop Dogg’s Christmas in the Dogg Pound compilation.

But since we’re a scrooge, here are some of the dumbest tweets we found.
