Santas Elves

Santa’s elves are actually subordinate Clauses.

When they are making toys, they sing “Love Me Tender.” That’s why we call them Santa’s little Elvis.

They think that all the work they do getting ready for Christmas is just like a day at the office. They do all the work but the fat guy in the suit gets all the credit. Not only that, but anytime he wants to, Santa could give them the sack.

A group of elves have banded together and started a rebellion to protest the terrible working conditions. They call themselves the Santanistas. They just want higher elf esteem.

The Great Outdoors

We are told these are actual comments left on Forest Service comment cards by backpackers completing wilderness camping trips:

* “A small deer came into my camp and stole my bag of    pickles. Is there a way I can get reimbursed? Please call.”
* “Escalators would help on steep uphill sections.”
* “Instead of a permit system or regulations, the Forest Service needs to reduce worldwide population growth to limit the number of visitors to wilderness.”
* “Trails need to be wider so people can walk while holding hands.”
* “Ban walking sticks in wilderness. Hikers that use walking sticks are more likely to chase animals.”
* “All the mile markers are missing this year.”
* “Trails need to be reconstructed. Please avoid building trails that go uphill.”
* “Too many bugs and leeches and spiders and spider webs. Please spray the wilderness to rid the area of these pests.”
* “Please pave the trails so they can be plowed of snow in the winter.”
* “Chair lifts need to be in some places so that we can get to wonderful views without having to hike to them.”
* “The coyotes made too much noise last night and kept me awake. Please eradicate these annoying animals.”
* “Reflectors need to be placed on trees every 50 feet so people can hike at night with flashlights.”
* “Need more signs to keep area pristine.”
* “A McDonald’s would be nice at the trailhead.”
* “The places where trails do not exist are not well marked.”
* “Too many rocks in the mountains.”

The following is supposedly a true story. To be included, besides being true, the story is most likely strange, weird, surprising, or funny.

The following appeared on the back page of one of Australia’s more outrageous computer publications, “Computing Australia”, 21st Sept 1987: … Blame it on the computer.

An unfriendly computer has been held responsible for a “potentially lethal error” involving a Mafia loan collector.

A New York paper inadvertently put the `heavy’ in the running for a pair of custom-fitted concrete shoes when it identified him as a “ruthless informer”.

According to a published retraction (and apology!), a writer on the paper had actually typed “ruthless enforcer” – but the computer system’s spelling checker liked it the other way.

And I thought the worst you could expect from a “computer error” was a bill for a million dollars!
