You don't want that. His elves come from all over the world and speak
many different dialects of elvish. Getting them just to a common point
of understanding would be nightmarish at best. Santa's saving grace is
that they work assembly-line style and don't need to communicate on
the job other than keeping the toys moving!



I think they're not called elves any more. I think they're now called subordinate clauses.

Happy Friday!
