Santa Claus- to most, he is a jolly old man who brings toys to good children on Christmas. But to you, he’s always just been your favorite uncle. You and your siblings have asked and asked Uncle Santa for years to consider you for opportunities to work at the North Pole; after all, it’s a family business, isn’t it?
For a long time Santa hemmed and hawed, but finally he’s relented: “Ho ho ho, fine. I suppose I am in need of stable hands for my reindeer. If you don’t mind festively scooping holly jolly deer poop, you are welcome to come here.”
Though none of you have any background in animal care, you take Uncle Santa up on the offer. But no sooner have you started the new gig when your limited husbandry knowledge becomes clear to the residents of the North Pole- it’s obvious you have no inkling how to properly care for a living organism. Uncle Santa is too busy to notice, but among his elves there are continuous whispers of your incompetence. One day, you all decide to switch out the water in the reindeers’ troughs and fill it with alcoholic eggnog (“tis the season!” being the reasoning). Well, turns out despite the Christmas whimsy around you that is not a good idea- the eggnog is essentially delicious poison to the creatures and all the reindeer drop dead.
Uncle Santa is NOT jolly about this.
“CHRISTMAS IS THREE DAYS AWAY!” he yells, his face red and rosy with anger, “HOW AM I TO DELIVER MY TOYS TO CHILDREN NOW? YOU ALL ARE SO SO SO STUPID!”
“Dear,” cuts in Mrs. Claus, trying to diffuse the situation, “there’s still hope. You know there are other magical flying animals out there that can help pull the sleigh this Christmas…” She motions to a donkey standing dopey behind her husband. “Why, there’s Dominick…”
“OTHER THAN CLIMBING THE HILLS OF ITALY, DOMINICK ALONE CAN’T HELP WITH ALL THESE TOYS!”
“The stable hands, dear- they have no reindeer anymore to care for now. I can give them the Magic Animal Tracker and they can go get some other animals to help. Dominick can take them around the world. It’s three days until Christmas, but that should be enough time to get enough animals assembled to successfully pull the sleigh.”
Uncle Santa shoots you all a dirty look. “You have three days. You have nearly ruined Christmas, so you better find those magical animals- and fast. Go go go!”
(So…you’ve got three days to find a collection of magical animals. You think THAT’S hard? Well, try doing it without using the letter L! )
