Elves in Iceland

As we all know, this is the busiest time of year for Santa’s elves. After spending a year crafting everything people on the nice list want (I’m imaging iPhone 5s, Porsches, and maybe a teddy bear or two), the elves are probably loading the last of their goods into Santa’s sleigh right now.

Politicians Using the Bible to Deny Climate Change
