With coal in hand, Santa makes return visit to Capitol Hill

Although it was his first trip to Capitol Hill with coal in hand, Old St. Nick paid lawmakers a visit just last week, when he entered the office of Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio). He told Boehner staffers at the time, “Now, I know he doesn’t want me to come back in two weeks with a bag of coal … Merry Christmas.”

No word on where Santa’s reindeer and elves were, and why he had to lug his deliveries around town himself.
