Sources at the North Pole say that Santa Claus recently acquired a slightly used submarine as a backup plan in case the North Pole melts.
Elves say that Mr. Claus believes that in the next few decades, climate change may make his icy home melt into seawater. As a result, Mr. Claus needed a place to relocate to in case that happens. While the preferred location is apparently the South Pole, Mr. Claus would need a means of transporting his workshop and all his elves there. So when a submarine came up for sale on e-bay, the opportunity was too good to pass up.
"We're really excited about this," exclaimed one elf, "we think he should use it in the meantime to make deliveries to Hawaii."
Sources say claims that Mr. Claus is attempting to buy an aircraft carrier are completely untrue.
