The North Pole - Santa, in an effort to curb the growth in the unemployment rolls, has hired several unemployed Easter bunnies laid off during recent cutbacks.
"They were easy to train because they are use to delivering things. I tried to train a couple of unemployed Tooth Fairies, but it just didn't worked out. They creep-out little kids when they feel under their pillows for teeth. I told them, just deliver! Just deliver! But they could not break their old habits of looking for lost teeth. The only trouble I had with Easter bunnies were, a few toys ended up in decorative baskets instead of socks," Santa told reporters.
Union leaders for the Superheroes and Holiday Icons are hoping that Santa will hire some Saint Patrick's Day Leprechauns next year to help out the Elf's.
"Provided the Leprechauns stay sober, they should work fine together. We would like to see everyone employed this year."
