Santa Drops The Sleigh, Blames Warmer Climate

These pictures where taken on the North Pole last summer where Santa trains on tackling global warming. -It's tempting to use drones, but it would scare the kids. Their too noisy, says Santa Claus.

-So its still better that he sneaks into their house at night while their asleep like a burglar. Without me!, says Rudolph. -I stood guard outside the houses. Do you know how many times I had to calm neighbours down? He'll be a disaster alone.

-At least the technology is there, says Santa. -When they find a way to make drones silent... That's it. I'm not leaving the North Pole again. I'm done with manual labour.
