Massive airdrops of Mooses by parachute combined with low level deployment of cheese pallets.

Article from Snopes. Enjoy :).

...Santa's sleigh is moving at 650 miles per second, 3,000 times the speed of sound. For purposes of comparison, the fastest man-made vehicle on earth, the Ulysses space probe, moves at a poky 27.4 miles per second - a conventional reindeer can run, tops, 15 miles per hour.

The payload on the sleigh adds another interesting element. Assuming that each child gets nothing more than a medium-sized lego set (two pounds), the sleigh is carrying 321,300 tons, not counting Santa, who is invariably described as overweight. On land, conventional reindeer can pull no more than 300 pounds. Even granting that "flying reindeer" (see above) could pull TEN TIMES the normal amount, we cannot do the job with eight, or even nine. We need 214,200 reindeer. This increases the payload (not even counting the weight of the sleigh) - to 353,430 tons. Again, for comparison - this is four times the weight of the Queen Elizabeth. 353,000 tons traveling at 650 miles per second creates enormous air resistance - this will heat the reindeer up in the same fashion as spacecraft re-entering the earth's atmosphere. The lead pair of reindeer will absorb 14.3 QUINTILLION joules of energy. Per second. Each.

When I was younger, I spent a few years in the Riverside Police Department Explorers, and one of our regular duties was surveilling the parking lot at Tyler Mall. One Christmas Eve, one of our advisors keyed his radio, played the alert beeper, and said, "All units, set to copy [All Persons Report]...one miniature sleigh and eight tiny reindeer."

The radar contact has to be a UFO.

Fresh meat is on the menu.

Does anyone know if Santa was given permission to fly into New York City, San Francisco or Las Vegas? Sure would upset the kiddies if he was denied...

If he was denied permission and trys to get in anyways he'll get shot out of the sky. I will be deeply saddened...

My brother once lived where they could see a radio tower (complete with flashing red light) on a distant mountain.

He made the mistake of telling his 3 or 4 year old son that the flashing red light was Rudolph's nose. The kid kept them up until LATE into the morning.

Uh oh, Santa wished Merry Christmas at a home of an ACLU member. Lawsuits are being racked up now. Ooooo, Rudolph made a bad turn and well that ACLU chimp now has skid marks all over his body. Poor Santa, wrapped up in lawsuits for next year. Thanks Rudolph! Get some more of em!

Of course, if Fox determines this is a car-chase up in the northern sky, they'll get on it right away!
