No, it’s not Santa, Unabomber Ted Kaczynski or the “Duck Dynasty” dude —
it’s David Letterman.
Just about the only indication of the 68-year-old TV legend’s true identity is the oversized T-shirt from Ball State University, his alma mater.
Letterman — who was photographed loping along a beach in St. Barts this week — has said he’s given up his dapper look since retiring last year because he always hated grooming for TV.
“I used to say, every day, ‘I am so sick and tired of shaving,’ ” he told the Whitefish Review newspaper, in Montana, in December.
“I had to shave every day, every day, for 33 years . . . And I just thought, the first thing I will do when I am not on TV is stop shaving.”
The look stunned fans.
“My God,” tweeted actor Josh Gad. “Apparently #DavidLetterman is after a ‘hobo hanging out in the mountains of Tora Bora’ look. And I’m jealous.”
For a stretch of Wednesday afternoon, “David Letterman” was trending on Twitter.
Brie Garret tweeted, “I thought David Letterman was trending because he died. Turns out he’s trending because he’s actually been Santa Claus all this time.”
