More Signs of the Bah Humbug Virus

More Signs of the Bah Humbug Virus

Wow. Not a lot of good news to report here today.

Elves are dropping like flies. Over at Santa’s workshop I saw Elf Bernard send 27 elves home early yesterday.

He walks around the workshop passing out orange juice and taking temperatures. Elf Ringo was busy making a batch of Gak when Elf Bernard pulled him from the line and sent him home.

“I didn’t know I was sick,” Ringo said. “But by the time I got home I had the chills.” Ringo talked to me by telephone. He later went to the North Pole Medical Center and they confirmed that, yes, Ringo has the bug.

In fact, they are becoming faster at seeing the signs of the bug. We are hoping this slows down the spread of it.

But you can tell how it is affecting things.

I went down town at lunch time and all the shops and restaurants are NOT busy. Nobody is out and about.

The Post Office, the Wrapping Department, the Sleigh Bell Department, the Tracking Center, the Reindeer Barn – all are reporting that a number of elves have called out sick for the fourth straight day.

The North Pole was having a great season until this thing happened. If it goes on much longer we’re going to start falling behind.

Mrs. Claus to Visit with Top Medical Experts

Mrs. Claus to Visit with Top Medical Experts

Uh-oh.

Lab results at the North Pole Medical Center showed a 92% chance that the terrible Bah Humbug virus has returned.

A meeting was held, with Santa calling in, and it was decided that Mrs. Claus would leave the North Pole to consult with medical experts in several countries.

The last time the North Pole had a serious turn with the Bah Humbug virus it nearly canceled Christmas.

In an effort to avoid that, Mrs. Claus is seeking help in clearing up the virus and taking steps to help elves keep from getting it.

There are a lot of worries about this and we hope the news is not true.

Fears of the Bah Humbug Virus Strike the North Pole

Fears of the Bah Humbug Virus Strike the North Pole

Hey everyone!

It seems there is more to the story we talked about yesterday from the North Pole Medical Center.

I received a call later yesterday from Elf Mari, a nurse who works in the lab there at the Med Center, and she told me elves there were testing for the presence of the Bah Humbug virus.

Ever since the North Pole was nearly shut down by the virus during the 1998 Christmas season we have had fears of it’s return every Christmas season. It has never returned though.

The North Pole is like anywhere else that has a lot of people. Sicknesses go around and elves get sick like anyone else.

The Bah Humbug Virus, however, is a bad, bad sickness.

It saps your Christmas spirit. It makes you grumpy.

It makes it so that Christmas is dreadful to you. If you get the bug you won’t want to hear Christmas music, see a Christmas tree, sing a Christmas song or even eat a Christmas cookie.

I really hope they don’t find the presence of the Bah Humbug Virus. Folks have been talking about it here all night. They remember how horrible that Christmas was in 1998.

They certainly don’t want to go through that again.

I will keep you posted on this story.

Reindeer Go Into Isolation

Tracking SantaGreetings, all!

Elf Victor has informed me that he has isolated Santa’s top teams of reindeer in the wake of the Bah Humbug virus scare.

No actual incidents involving the virus have been reported among the reindeer but Elf Victor says he cannot be too careful.

Reindeer cannot be treated in the same way as elves against the Bah Humbug virus. It takes a lot more time to clear it up so Elf Victor is very careful to make sure the reindeer are not exposed to these dangers.

So far, so good.

Worries Grow About Sick Elves

Santa UpdateHi everyone!

A big scare going on here today at the North Pole – elves are lined up by the hundreds at the North Pole Medical Center to get shots for the Bah Humbug Bug.

As we told you days ago Elf Dr. Lionel P. Spock promised to call me if he thought the virus was back.

He called me last night and I got hold of Santa.

Production in all departments has dropped as Santa ordered mandatory treatment with an eggnog flavored elixir all elves are now required to get.

The North Pole Medical Center was almost immediately over run with patients and I heard the line is now about 6 hours long just to get in there.

We don’t know if this is all the work of the Merry Prankster or not.

We just cannot risk another outbreak of this virus or it would shut down Christmas entirely.
