Thank you everyone for your valiant efforts to stop the menace, Claus. As far as my knowledge goes, Mr. Kringle did not steal my diabolical plans. He might have photocopied them and then put them right back, however, but let's hope he didn't.
Anyway, which plan did you use that worked so effectively?
Also, I'd like to say Merry Christmas, Happy Hannakah, and have a wonderful New Year's Eve--which is one of my favorite holidays. To be more general, have a good winter!
