Only a Little Bit Punny

A guy walks in to a kebab shop and is surprised to see Father Christmas serving behind the counter.

“Santa!” he says. “What are you doing working here? Shouldn’t you be upsad-santa
at the North Pole preparing for the big day?”

Santa Claus sighs. He’s really let himself go. The red suit’s got lard and chilli sauce and bits of lettuce all over it. His apron’s in a mess and he just looks fed up and like he doesn’t want to be serving up kebabs for a living.

“Well,” Santa says at last, “the business has gone belly up. With the recession, the credit crunch and all, the toy industry took a beating. I had to lay off some of the elves, make cut backs in quality and we just lost our competitive edge. Plus we wound up the delivery side and subcontracted out to UPS. But… it didn’t help. The receivers came in, asset-stripped the business and we went into liquidation.”

“Gee,” the guy says. “I’m really sorry; it kind of takes the tradition out of Christmas in a way.”

“Yeah,” says Santa Claus and manages a wan smile. “Well enough of me and my woes. What can I get you?”

The guy says, “I’ll have a large Donner.

“Sorry,” says Santa. “We’re all out of Donner…….Will Blitzen do instead?”

  6. No. I had the misfortune to see a snippy little documentary on TV the other night about a Japanese Sister-City of Broome, Western Australia. They kill dolphins .. and I don’t like it! They kill them in a pleasant little cove, with a massive tarpaulin hoisted over the cove from shore to shore so that nobody can SEE them killing dolphins. Not only whales, but dolphins as well … for eating! So if they can do this for whales and dolphins, dogs and cats, monkeys and men, why not reindeer???

  8. Over here, the delicacy is called a “donair”, which always sounds to me like a toroidal cooling system, perhaps wedged in the window of the local chippie (which is another word they don’t use here).

  9. Spelled correctly, it is a “Doner” in Oz. But my spell check doesn’t like it that way. Perhaps it needs a screw on top – – –

  10. I’m more in the mood for a donut, myself. I’m telling you, it’s bad when you have to use Google to get the joke.
