Scunner’s New Job

Posted by Santa Claus on December 14th, 2012

I am in such a good mood today, even more than usual!

As you know I am a jolly happy man but today I am extra jolly and happy.  Would you like to know why?

I told you about poor Scunner the Grumpy Elf and his allergy to Christmas?  Well, I have found him a new job and he seems much happier.

Have I told you about Professor Fumblebumble?  He is my chief scientist.  He develops and improves toys.  He is very clever but very absent minded and a little bit clumsy.  That doesn’t surprise me because he is Clumsy the Elf’s Uncle.

Well, I thought that maybe Scunner could help Professor Fumblebumble.  I took Scunner down the secret elevator to the laboratory.  We went in and saw that the professor was standing at a bench.  His hair standing up on end and his face covered in soot.

‘Ah, you must be Scunner the unhappy elf?’ the Professor said as he removed his goggles.  There were two clean rings around his eyes.

Scunner started to laugh and the Professor looked confused.

‘Santa, I thought you said he was sad?’ The professor rubbed his chin.

‘Och, you look like a Panda.’ Scunner laughed and the Professor smiled.

Just at that point there was an explosion behind him and we all jumped out of our skin.

‘That’s my breakfast.’ The professor ran across to a smoking bowl and looked at it sadly. ‘My porridge is ruined.’

‘You like porridge professor? So, do I and I make great porridge.’

They started talking and sharing stories about porridge, so I quietly left them to it.  As I stepped into the lift I thought I even heard Scunner laugh!

Merry Christmas!

P.S.  Do you think Scunner will like his new job?  I wonder what toys the Professor is developing?  Do you have any ideas?  You can click here to tell me about it or, scroll down to see what other people have written!
