Top of the Tree

Not long ago and far away, Santa was getting ready for his annual trip, but there were problems everywhere.

Four of his elves got sick, and the trainee elves did not produce the toys as fast as the regular ones so Santa was beginning to feel the pressure of being behind

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.

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. So, 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 hidden 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 he 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 to put this tree Santa?"

And that my friends, is how the little angel came to be on top of the Christmas tree.

To the TOP....dude.
I have a folder of jokes. Its here, in my GroupWise mail account. They date back to the turn of the century.
What...what should I do to provide this legacy to you?

A scary proposition safetinspector. I already have enough to last me a couple of years, but it seems like an opportunity.

I guess options include e-mailing them to me, setting up a sister site or even going into partnership and giving you membership access to this site so we could take it in turns to upload.

Do you have a preference or other ideas?

Tynna said... that's how the angel got to be on top!

Well next time someone tells you where to stick it...

I'd email them to you, I suppose. There are hundreds here, of varying qualities.
My email address is public knowledge,
Drop me a line and I'll reply!
