========================================
               [ SantaFly ]
========================================

Christams has been stolen.
One man can get it back.
One button can save the world.

========================================
                                  Story
========================================

Santa awoke from troubled dreams. It
was the night before Christmas, always
a turbulent time, but he was more 
worried than normal.

"What could possibly go wrong?"
Miss Claus had chided him.

He hated that phrase. It always preceded
doom, death and disaster.

"Better check on the gifts"

Santa pulled on his boots and stumbled
half naked and bleary eyed towards his
toyshop.

As he drew closer, he gasped in surprise
what should be a hive of activity was
strangely silent. The toyshop was in
complete  darkness.

"Strange" muttered Santa.

The worry that had been swirling around
his head start crashing about his brain
like an ill tempered stormy sea.

"...those new helpers..."

When the old Elves had left last year to
pursue an interest in the blooming
midget porn industry, Santa had to
look far and wide for new recruits.

His new helpers were a set of lesbian
elves - not his first choice, but his
hand had been forced by Lapland's new
equal opportunies legislation.

But his early fairs had been allayed,
they seemed to be doing their job - they
spent hours in the toyshop beavering away.
They also kept themselves to themselves. 
He paid them each 5 carrots per week and
that seemed to keep them happy.

Bursting into the toyshop, Santa let
out a scream of despair. It was empty.

"My gifts! My helpers" he moaned
Christmas was ruined.

A faint giggle caught his ear, and 
looking to the sky he saw the fleeing
helpers, clutching sacks of gifts.

"I'll catch you!" Santa bellowed and
quickly mounted Rudolph the reindeer.

"There's no time for that now," 
complained Rudolph "let's get after 
those naughty helpers!"
