Santa happened to participate in a competition, which was about writing the
shortest story. The organizers had put a condition that a story must have
four ingredients viz. religion, sex, suspense and mystery. Santa’s turn came

sentence and read: “Oh God, my wife is going to deliver a child”. Ostensibly

Santa was declared the winner for writing the shortest story!
