From the Archives: A Christmas Tragedy

I'm taking a little blogging break this week, but I'll be posting some favorites from the archives.

A Christmas Tragedy (originally posted December 16, 2008. By the way, the crime scene tape is up again this year).

Dateline: Grovetown, Georgia
December 16th, 2008

Santa's annual office party turned tragic this year when a domestic dispute turned violent.

An altercation involving elf couple Margaret and Jerry Whitmore occurred when Jerry learned that Margaret had been "stuffing stockings" with family friend and co-worker, Hermey Martin.

The fight quickly escalated into a brawl, with at least 30 elves and an unidentified reindeer being transported to local hospitals for treatment.

A local unit of toy soldiers was called in to maintain order.

Whitmore and Martin were both arrested and are being held on a 50,000 candy cane bail. They were both found to have blood hot chocolate levels twice the legal limit.

A spokesperson from Santa's office could not be reached for comment.

Or at least that's the only thing I could think of that would warrant so much crime scene tape around the City of Grovetown Light Display.
