Santa at the Eye Doctor


This just in.  The Associated Press and Huffington Post are reporting that late last night Santa came close to wrecking his sleigh.  Evidently Rudolph's nose gave out and the sleigh hit a cell tower as it began a trial run out of Orlando.

There's no word on casualties yet, but Santa's entourage was able to limp along for some 75 miles before setting down on the Happy Trails horse farm just south of Ocala.

As this post went to press, one of our avid readers sent us the above photo. She spotted Santa at Ocala Eye getting his eyes checked.  A source close to Santa said it was Santa's fault the sleigh hit the cell tower; his eyesight is getting worse. It's been at least 50 years since he's had his eyes checked.

We are happy to report, however, that all is well.  Just a short time ago, a group of disaffected teen goths were swimming with the sharks at Silver Springs and they heard a cry from the sky, "Hi Yo, Silver!  Away!"

Wait, that's not right!  Oh oh.

Well, if you're a 1300 year old elf, sooner or later you need to get your eyes checked.

You are so funny Lowell! I'm a little worried about Santa now.

Jacob, Jacob, Jacob. What are we gonna do with you? I hope Santa didn't read this and will still find your stocking on Christmas Eve!

Santa the lone ranger!

You sure Santa wasn't simply checking texts on his cell phone? Twitter feeds from the Orange One? Well, glad he's had his eyes checked. Would hate for him to go home to the wrong pole.

A lot of imagery in this one, Lowell!

You need to keep writing the story. Expand the middle and keep us entertained!

Oh my goodness, Santa had better take care of himself. He's depended on by so many.

Is Mr. Claus off his medication again. He needs to take care of himself if he wants to complete his yearly mission because if he doesn't millions of people will be upset and call him out. There is only so much that Ruddy can do.

AS long as he is okay for Saturday night!
