I wouldn't have believed it, but both the AP and the UPI are rolling this story, Snopes even verified it.
"The day that santa got stuck One day, the day before christmas I herd a thump santa is stuck! I went to the chimney to help santa and I got him down. But he dident have enough time to give all the presents to everyone. So I had to help him! I had so much fun and I got home in time for christmas. I love Christmas."
"If santa was stuk in my cimney I wold... First: I wold sneak out of the hause and git a lader Next: I wold climb The lader and go to the cimney. Then: I would jump on santa. Finly: he wold fall thro the chimny and he wold still have time to give us a presents. I wold go back to bed and go to sleap."
Santa's a dumbass...

Nick was unscrambling letters for homework and the BIG word was duckling.
Trying to help him figure it out, I did what any mom would do - I make wings and started quacking.
"Duck," he guessed.
"Yes ... and ... " I said and made myself shorter and repeated the sound (get it? small + duck = duckling).
"Quack?" he guessed.
"Not quite," I quacked.
He smiled triumphantly, "I know! Onomatopoeia!"
fail - BUT *Love that my kid knows what onomatopoeia is!*
I witnessed this and fell out...
