The armed revolt by Santa's elves...

 
Just a week before Christmas and all round the 
globe, the talk was of burning, extraction and wars

With the Arctic ice melting faster each day, 
Santa and his elves, they are in harms way!

Their home up north, where the toys are all made, 
now is floating on water - the elves are afraid!

And polar bears tired of swimming around, have 
taken up refuge on the elves higher ground!

The elves cannot work they are all worried sick, 
and want us to know that we must act QUICK!

Stop shopping and spending and wasting so much, 
put your money to better use, or call earth a bust!

Instead of new stuff, trinkets and toys, donate 
to Energy Justice, and help us make noise!

We’ve been fighting for justice, clean air and 
safe jobs, we are the grassroots- we work for the cause!

Just send us 10, 20, 500 or more – (we know that 
you too may feel a bit poor.)

Whatever you offer, we thank you right now, and 
hope you will stand up and take you a bow!

For Christmas is not about purchasing crap, that 
more than likely will end as smoke up a stack!Let’s make Christmas GREAT! 
Hurry up it's not too late.

The elves are rising up, like a spontanious bolt,
DONT WAIT TILL CHRISTMAS, ITS TIME TO REVOLT!

---

HELP! We’re the elves who make all the toys you good little boy and girls play with. Santa is an evil, evil man. He forces our kind to work in his sweat shop! We are NOT free to go. Our Christmas consists of making cocoa for Santas return.

Remember who gives you coal…its Santa, not us elves.

JOIN US in the revolt and help free us from Santa’s tyraniccal rule!

Why do you think he caries that whip? The ‘reign’deer have been following the same root for over 2000 years!

» The Olympic Stanley Cup: Montreal 1977, Calgary 1989, Vancouver 2011?

A coworker shared an interesting bit of NHL trivia with me last month. Every time a Canadian city has hosted the Olympics, it has won the Stanley Cup the following year. Personally I think this trend would be similar to flipping a coin twice on the moon, landing heads both times, and then claiming that a coin always lands on heads on the moon. Of course the math isn’t that simple for winning a Stanley Cup since the probabilily of a Canadian team winning is far less than 1/2… but I think it’s the same principle. Just look at the flipside argument: does this theory explain why Canadian teams have won the Stanley cup when the Olympics were not hosted in the previous year? Didn’t think so! (Disclaimer: I don’t believe in this theory but I may have to change this post given how the Vancouver Canucks have been playing this year)
