Truth behind the Tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas tree!

Links:
Plzzz..... This is just a JOKE!

When four of Santa's elves got sick, the trainee elves did not produce
toys as fast as the regular ones, and Santa began to feel the
Pre-Christmas pressure.

Then Mrs. Claus told Santa her Mother was coming to visit, which
stressed Santa even more.

When he went to harness the reindeer, he found that three of them were
about to give birth and two others had jumped the fence and were out,
Heaven knows where.

Then when he began to load the sleigh, one of the floorboards cracked,
the toy bag fell to the ground and all the toys were scattered.

Frustrated, Santa went in the house for a cup of apple cider and a shot
of rum. When he went to the cupboard, he discovered the elves had drank
all the cider and hidden the liquor. In his frustration, he accidentally
dropped the cider jug, and it broke into hundreds of little glass pieces
all over the kitchen floor. He went to get the broom and found the mice
had eaten all the straw off the end of the broom.

Just then the doorbell rang, and irritated Santa marched to the door,
yanked it open, and there stood a little angel with a great big
Christmas tree.

The angel said very cheerfully, 'Merry Christmas, Santa. Isn't this a
lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Where would you like me to
stick it?'

And so began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas
tree.

Why is it that almost every terrorist act finds its root in Pakistan? How can you not see the tacit support that the Pak govt gives it. Now you may say ISI or the Army but they are also part of the govt. And if terrorists are TRAINING ok Paki soil, who should be held accountable for that. The sooner the world realizes that Paki is another Afganistan in making, the better. Pakistan is the masthead of Islamic Terrrorism. Unfortunately, its a victim of it too… But as you sow, so you reap.

Any color as long as its RED

No arguments there...

Men find women sexier if they're sporting a crimson hue rather than, say, blue or green.
But this might not help Sarah Palin a lot!

Could it be Roses, Hearts and Valentines and Lingerie and things like that which are usually shown in Red and are all related to Romance in different ways. Red is more than a color. It means Danger, Fire, Hot, Blood and also believed to be provocative!

Provocative, probably for all those reasons.

dreams...

first time blogging my dream...

so there i was at some store and i asked the lady on the counter for a cigarette. and she gave me one. while i was puffing away, it struck me that she didn't even ask me what brand of cigerette i want! maybe she used her own judgement. by the way the cigarette was almost burnt out in only three smokes! what the hell!

cutting back.. i saw the sky full of aircrafts and one of them was falling down. i was praying the pilot bails out.. and then i realized they were all falling down. they were actually being shot down - by the chineses fighters right on their tail.

hmmm....
