PostSubject: Google Street Map to cover North Pole   Thu Dec 22, 2011 7:45 am

Kids across the Western World can now log onto to Google and see Father Christmas's house at the North Pole, with Google Street View finally reaching the most northerly point on the planet.

"
We're quite excited,"
said head of Google Mapping, Dougal Frugal. "
We've spent the last six months creating the realistic town full of elves."


Unlike the rest of Google Street View, this new facility changes every day, with changes to the whole town.

"
It's quite magical,"
said Frugal. "
And each day, somewhere in the town, is the big man himself."


Like the rest of Google Street View, the elves will have their faces pixelated. Or Pixie-ated, if you will.

"
Elves have rights too,"
said Frugal. "
However, we have had special dispensation from Santa to not pixelate his face."


Google Street View North Pole went live at the start of December ..

Google are promising something spectacular, magical and exciting on Christmas Eve."
It's going to be brilliant,"
said Frugal. "
Kids will love it!"

Blink, dont take it to seriously/ aways read the small print at the end ..

Santa Postpones Christmas After Dasher, Blitzen and Vixen Sent to Jail
North Pole lawyers were busy this week at the Elf County Courthouse, trying to arrange bail and some time sensitive freedom for Dasher, Blitzen and Vixen, three of Santa's primary reindeer team. Judge Judy Friesfrost denied an early release based on the severity of charges facing the reindeer, choosing to delay arraignment until after the holidays. Reports from the North Pole workshop indicate that Santa may have to postpone gift delivery until his reindeer are released.

Facing repeat offender changes this year, all three reindeer had been incarcerated last year on a variety of charges ranging from drunk and disorderly to prostitution. "
They are really just good North Pole residents, a little wound up and high strung before the big night flight"
, says reindeer chief lawyer and workshop elf, Johnny Cochran-Twizzle. "
They were just blowing off some steam, that's all. If the hoofs don't fit, you must acquit"
.

Elf County prosecutors were not amused, and sought to permanently ground the three reindeer team members. "
Running around town like they own the place, boosting cars, public drunkenness, they are a disgrace to the North Pole"
, says county prosecutor Wint R. Warlock. The charges leveled against the reindeer appear to reflect Warlock's commitment to cleaning up reindeer crime. Dasher was charged with two counts of automobile theft and joy riding, Blitzen was reportedly caught with enough magic dust to warrant a trafficking charge, and Vixen reportedly engaged in numerous counts of prostitution.

Vixen, long thought to be an oddly named male reindeer is the only female member of Santa's team. On her way to jail, Vixen snickered and then declared for the cameras, "
So what if a girl likes to go into town and blow a few bucks. Is that so wrong?"


There was no word from the North Pole Aviation Administration if Santa intends to alter his flight plan or if he may still attempt the night flight with a new team leading his sleigh. NPAA spokes-elf, Jimmy Sparkle says, "
We've never missed a single Christmas Eve, I'm sure the fat man will figure something out. Though, I will miss having Vixen around during our breaks from the tower"
.


More North Pole news as we get it.

These stories are entirely fictitious,Some names have been changed to protect the innocent. ::

Dam I have been rumbled .............

....This is true.. I am not taking the MICK..

A 100-year-old Santa letter written by a Dublin brother and sister has come to light – and offers a fascinating glimpse into the Christmas spirit of old.

The Irish Times newspaper has published the letter, written by the Howard family siblings to Father Christmas in 1911, and found in a Terenure house.

Builder John Byrne came across the handwritten note on a shelf behind a fireplace and the paper reports that it has been slightly scorched over the years.

The brother and sister penned the letter in their Dublin home on Christmas Eve 1911 when they requested gifts and offered a ‘good luck’ message to Santa Claus.

The message to Santa was warm but explicit. “I want a baby doll and a waterproof with a hood and a pair of gloves and a toffee apple and a gold penny and a silver sixpence and a long toffee.”

Is there anyone else who wants a baby doll and a waterproof with a hood and a pair of gloves ..?
