A parody of Click, Clack, Moo

Santa Claus has a problem.
His reindeer like to type.
All day long he hears
Click, Clack, Grunt.
Click, Clack, Grunt.
Clickety, Clack, Grunt.

At first, he couldn't believe his elves when they told him.
Reindeer that type? Impossible.
Click, Clack, Grunt.
Click, Clack, Grunt.
Clickety, Clack, Grunt.

Then, when he went to the reindeer-shed, he couldn't believe his eyes.

"Dear Santa Claus,
The shed is very cold at night. We'd like some electric blankets. Sincerely, The Reindeer"


It was bad enough that they had found the old typewriter in the shed, now they wanted electric blankets!

"No way," declared Santa Claus. "No electric blankets." So the reindeer left a note on the door, saying "Sorry. We're closed. We're not coming out for the Reindeer Games, or Flying Practice."

"No Reindeer Games?!" cried, Santa Claus. In the background, he heard the reindeer busy at work:
Click, Clack, Grunt.
Click, Clack, Grunt.
Clickety, Clack, Grunt.

The next day, he got another note.
"Dear Santa Claus, we are still waiting for our blankets. To retain heat, these doors are going to remain locked until we get out blankets. Sincerely, The Reindeer"
In the background, he heard the reindeer busy at work:
Click, Clack, Grunt.
Click, Clack, Grunt.
Clickety, Clack, Grunt.

The next day, he was presented with the same note.
"Reindeer that type! Reindeer on strike! Whoever heard of such a thing?! How can I deliver the presents without the reindeer?!" Santa Claus was furious.

So, he stormed inside his office and got out his own typewriter.
"Dear Reindeer: There will be NO electric blankets. You are simply reindeer. I demand that you unlock the doors to the shed. I also demand that you attend Flying Practice. Sincerely, Santa Claus."

Buddy the elf was a neutral party, so he brought the ultimatum to the cows.

That night, The reindeer held an emergency meeting. All of the Elves gathered around the reindeer-shed to snoop, but none of them could understand Grunt.
All night long, Santa Claus waited for an answer.

Buddy the elf knocked on the door early the next morning. He handed Santa Claus a note. It read as follows: "Dear Santa Claus, We will exchange our typewriter for electric blankets. Leave them outside the Shed door, and we will send Buddy over with the typewriter. Sincerely, The Reindeer."

Santa Clause decided this was a good deal. He left the blankets next to the shed door and waited for Buddy to come with the typewriter.

The next morning, Santa Claus got a note: "Dear Santa Claus. The Elf sleeping quarters are quite boring. We'd like a Disco Ball. Sincerely, Elves"
