The mind works in mysterious ways, like when people sometimes see the image of Jesus on a piece of toast, or seeing a mirage of a ship or water while walking through a desert. Those are typical enough, but it takes a bit of a dirty mind to see a penis on a Santa Claus cookie at Target. 

Alas, here we are, three weeks from the big day and Target has found itself having to respond to media inquiries about chocolate-dipped Santa cookies in which Saint Nick's boots have been likened to a penis.

“We have not received any feedback directly on this item,” a Target spokesperson said in a statement provided to the New York Post. “The design is intended to represent Santa’s boots. We appreciate the feedback and will take it into consideration moving forward.”

Honestly, we're not seeing anything other than boots, but then again this story is being composed early on a Saturday morning by a writer who has woken up in a wholesome mood.

Women on Facebook, however, are having a jolly good time commenting about Santa' 

"I think the bottom left cookie is what you see if you lift the middle left cookie up and look under Santa's tummy," a woman wrote on the Facebook post that got this mommy-kissing-Santa-Claus-mess started. 

"That bottom left cookie should be on the naughty list," said another commenter. 

The Bad Santa cookies only costs $3.99. Buy them here
