[NPOE] Billfred, just give yourself 10 points for that opening line. Seriously.[/NPOE]
There are some jobs that just can’t be automated. Er, couldn’t be. In an unrelated story, a herd of reindeer wearing “Will work for hay” signs has been seen migrating south, led by a mysterious red light.


#3

I’m here to spread some Christmas gear!


#4

You get surplus fuel! And you get surplus fuel! Everybody gets the surplus fuel!


#5

Southeast: Snow=no robotics because no school
Northeast: Snow=Christmas themed robots


#6

Elves on shelves weren’t cutting it for the north pole surveillance program, so Santa gave each household a robot for Christmas that just happened to have a camera.


#7

2017 teams that picked fuel in lieu of gears had a terrible bot for the season.
2017 teams that picked gears in lieu of fuel had a terrible bot for demoing the off season.


#8

The North Pole tech elves have been busy creating automated reindeer. Next up: Santa will deliver on Christmas Eve using drones.


#9

Rudolph got a bionic upgrade


#10

Oh, if only the 855PB-B12ME522 were red.

[NPOE]Yes, that’s the Robot Signal Light.[/NPOE]


#11

This year, all the naughty children are getting coal.


#12

Don’t think there’s that much carpet at the North Pole.


#13

Looks like Atlanta’s version of a snow plow.


#14

When 291 and Santa failed to reach an agreement on the correct signal light color, a compromise was made. It still failed inspection because the additional bumper was mounted too high and lacked the team number.


#15

(Not an entry)

So can we take this as evidence that Al Skierkiewicz is indeed Santa?
I mean, he’s got the beard, lives up North, and prior to retirement had a lot to do with red lights way up in the sky…

Ho ho ho
