Santa's Bad Day

Long, long ago at the North Pole, Santa's stress level was going off the Richter scale.

A virus had laid low the elves, production was way behind and, horror of horrors, Mrs Claus's mother had arrived for a surprise visit.

Three of the reindeer were about to give birth and Rudolf, who was responsible for their unfortunate state, had jumped the fence in search of new playmates.

The sleigh cracked under the weight of toys which were spilled in the snow and, while his few remaining helpers repacked everything, Santa went inside for a shot of rum to calm his nerves.

That's when he discovered that the elves had drunk it all and, in sheer frustration, he hurled the empty flask at the wall, shattering it.

Just then there was a tap at the door. He opened it to find a pretty little angel delivering a beautiful Christmas tree.

“Merry Christmas, Santa,” said the angel. “Here's your tree. Where would you like me to put it?”

And so began the tradition of putting a little angel on top of the Christmas tree.

                                                

A merry Christmas from the Inferno to all my chess.com friends and foes—and in 2010, may all your pawns turn into queens and kick your opponents' butts.

    contrapunctusI'm a bit slow, I don't get it. Why would the girl be on the tree? If its what I think it is then Laughing, but not sure if it is the right answer. Anyways thanks for all your awesome blog posts this year!

    Ah, that takes me back contrapunctus. In 1963 a guy named John Profumo who was then the British Secretary of State for War was at a rather informal party and, when he opened the door to admit a late-arriving guest, he was wearing nothing but a ribbon.

    A woman I worked with at that time asked, "But where was he wearing the ribbon?" To which I answered, "Yes!" She knew very well where it was tied (where else could it have been?) but she simply didn't believe it.

    And the answer to your question is the same, "Yes!" You're perfectly correct, so your smiley stays in place.

    And thanks for your friendly comment.
