Not long ago and far away, Santa was getting
ready for his annual trip...but there were problems
Four of his elves got sick,
and the trainee elves didn't produce the toys
as fast as the regular ones, so Santa was beginning
to feel the pressure of being behind schedule.
Then Mrs. Claus told Santa that her Mom was
coming to visit. This stressed Santa even more.
When he went to harness the reindeer, he found
that three of them were about to give birth and
two had jumped the fence and were out...heaven
knows where to. More Stress!
Then when he began to load the sleigh, one
of the boards cracked and the toy bag fell to
the ground and scattered the toys.
Totally frustrated, Santa went into the house
for a cup of coffee and a shot of whiskey. When
he went to the cupboard, he found the elves had
hid the liquor and there was nothing to drink.
In his frustration, he dropped the coffee pot
and it broke into hundreds of little pieces all
over the kitchen floor.
He went to get the broom and found that mice
had eaten the straw it was made from. Just then
the doorbell rang and Santa cussed on his way
to the door. He opened the door and there was
a little angel with a great big Christmas tree.
The angel said: "Where would you like me to put
this tree fat man?"
And this my friend is how the little angel
came to be on top of the Christmas tree.
