North Pole Bailout
Santa Claus was in Washington D.C. this week. He was testifying before congress. It turns out that Santa's workshop has been running in the red this year. High fuel prices in the 2nd and 3rd quarters along with the elves unionizing have driven up costs. He is asking for a bailout package of 10 billion dollars.
One of the issues that was brought up by congress was the fact that Santa showed up in his personal sleigh and didn't take a commercial flight.
Hope he gets his bailout before christmas.
