Tribunal

You shouldn’t have been sacked So I’m glad that we could meet I think I’ve got it cracked Won’t you please take a seat You cannot be dismissed Just because your boss is vexed For if you work one Christmas Then you shouldn’t work the next December twenty-fourth and fifth Just two days off this year That’s called unfair dismissal And we can help you here I’d say we have a case For it’s against employment laws So let’s take down some details What’s your first name Mr Claus?

You are right; the Big Boss can't lose, plus he has the support of millions of children who will not accept christmas presents every other year! Clever! Aloha!

Very cute, Terry. I doubt if that gent can claw his job back, however. Season's Joy, Gershon

Well, as Santa’s boss is likely to be the big man upstairs, I doubt he would win his case. All the best for the coming year, Gershon. Terry

Oh, this one is precious, Terry. So, so funny. I'm assuming your head of the labor union, right?
