This funny thought occured to me today. I submit for your consideration: -- The North Pole economy depends on one specialty State Industry (toy manufacuring) -- He runs his operation from a secret gulag using elven slave labor to produce cheap goods. -- He keeps a KGB-esque list of people who are "naughty and nice" -- His favorite color is red. -- He preaches that he distributes his gifts equally regardless of class, but rich kids, and kids who toe his party line and don't get on his "naughty list", undoubtably get more. -- His beard looks an awful lot like that of Karl Marx. Make your own judgment.
