Santa will be late this year

Just received this pic from a friend...

The pilot ( bottom right )  is very sorry  but he could not swerve to miss him in time !!

The plane landed safely .

That looks like a Boeing 737 - apparently the pilot had the 'presents of mind' and tried to swerve but the computer said 'no'...

Wonder what happened to the Reindeer ?

Santas elves are now filing a class action against Boeing..

Re: Santa will be late this year

Normally it's bird strikes that worry pilots; I wonder how ATC would react to a report of a reindeer strike.  Drug and alcohol testing?  Since Santa is, if the Finnish tourist industry is to be believed, a citizen of Finland, he must be bound by EU rules which I'm sure forbid flying more than a few metres above chimney height in order to minimise fuel (carrot) consumption etc.

If he makes a full recovery we can, of course track him.

He corks their "exhausts" to store the gas up to use in his methane-powered generator that runs the workshop of course!!! 🤣

 

After all, would you want to be riding in an open sleigh when they all started farting?? Even worse if one followed through..... 💩

So that's down to brexit.

That was kept from me and other voters.

If only I had known of the disastrous consequences.😀

M&S are doing their bit for the obesity crisis, their much advertised Sticky Toffee Christmas Pudding only comes in one size: HUGE (900g).  The good news is that it's best before 26/02/20.
