Santa Clause was found dead, this morning, outside a home in Vernon, New Jersey.
Mourning reindeer were found near his body. Accoding to witnesses, one of the reindeer accidentally punctured Santa’s abdomen with one of its antlers. Almost 300 lbs of strawberry jelly spurted from the wound, saturating the ground around Santa’s body, leaving the jolly man flat and lifeless.
According to police, none of the reindeer would name their clumsy compatriot.
An investigation continues. No charges have been filed as of this writing.
Doctors and candy makers hope to re-jelly Santa as soon as possible. All the world hopes the transfusion and reanimation is successful.
The Easter Bunny and the Great Pumpkin have agreed to make Santa’s Christmas Eve deliveries.
