Christmas puzzles

Methinks madness is abroad in the world this Christmas.

In Norfolk, police have been on the lookout for Corset snatchers who disappeared with £600’s worth of this underwear. Obviously someone who is holding a food binge party but wanted to hide the evidence.

Cows have been denied “right to light” by a farmer near Frankfurt, Germany. However, when police were sent in to uphold the cow’s rights, the farmer attacked them with an axe. Gives a new meaning to the term “pane” full experience.

The United Arab Emirates have introduced a new dress code after government officials have been caught arriving at work… in their nightwear! This just adds weight to the theory that most governments are asleep on the job!

Buss driver almost casualty in war on Christmas

Hi Brit,

Here’s another terrorist attack by the Christmas haters. 

Santa Hat-Wearing Bus Driver Allowed to Keep Job
Ken Mott (Newsday)

A Santa hat-wearing school bus driver on Long Island, N.Y., has won the right to keep wearing his festive headgear, Newsday reported.

Kenneth Mott, who keeps a long, white beard, almost lost his job after a parent called the bus management to complain. Mott, who has worn the red and white hat every Christmas since he started with the Bauman & Sons bus company five years ago, was ordered to stop wearing the hat because a child didn’t believe in Santa Claus and was bothered by the hat.

“I said, ‘What, are you kidding me?'” Mott recalled. “I thought it was a big joke,” Newsday reported.

However, after Mott told other parents he might be fired for wearing the hat, supervisors changed their stance and said he could continue to wear the hat.

While this is, of course, ridiculous, it does give you a chance to compare your Santa beard to that guy’s.
