Ho ho ho!
Disturbing news from the Research and Development Department today working on the final version of Santa’s new sleigh: someone broke into the sleigh barn last night and painted it pink.
Of course, it’s the work of the Merry Prankster.
“Actually, he appears to be a very skilled painter,” Elf Quinton observed when he showed me the sleigh this morning.
“But the reindeer aren’t going to like that!” he said pointing to a big sign on the back that said “I break for My Little Pony”.
I have to admit, the sleigh did look unusually fast in a kind of a bubble gum color.
But Santa will never go for that and everyone knows it. Elf Quinton says the next two days will be spent repainting the sleigh and that further flight tests will have to be postponed.
