NORAD didn't disappoint in it's usual tradition of tracking down St. Nick who exists in the innocent hearts and minds of kids.
Canadian CF-18 fighter jets intercepting the chubby fellow yesterday at around 0136hrs GMT just about when he was ascending from the Himalayas after a drop-off of Capitalist Manifesto copies to the Tibetan children populace.
Another sighting by the supersonic F-16's escort jets caught a video of St. Nick taking a pee break apparently hanging precariously from the sleighs edge, one hand on the Reindeer halters, the other holding his willy, moving at well..fantastic supersonic speeds.
"ho! ho! ho! he was heard ho-hoing, urging his Reindeer team of Dancer, Prancer, Comet, Cupid,
the leading light Rudolf and of course a crimson red painted Pratt and Whitney tugged snugly behind the sleigh "we can't afford to stop, we are already behind schedule" he said.
The rest of the Reindeer team had been let go following the adoption of this technological marvel and as Rudolf put it ' oh! the dead weight was pretty much slowing us down'.
"everybody has to carry his own weight up here, except, of course, Santa" he added.
But Santa being the generous, kind hearted Santa that he is deployed them to the Santa Bakery to pull sleigh-loads fresh baked confectionery.
"though this new job is not as 'high profile' as he last, we can't complain" said Blitzen on his new responsibilities.
" you should see the guys down there on earth-not even McDonalds could take them in to flip burgers" he added.
Well, Santa could be delayed but not denied- he sure does exist.
Peace on Earth and goodwill to all men
