Forwarded to me by Joe Senner, who got it from King Ables (addresses above),
who got it from someone else …

I was musing on similarities between Santa Claus and system
administrators. Consider:

Santa is bearded, corpulent, and dresses funny.
When you ask Santa for something, the odds of receiving what you wanted are
infinitesimal.
Santa seldom answers your mail.
When you ask Santa where he gets all the stuff hes got, he says, Elves
make it for me.
Santa doesnt care about your deadlines.
Your parents ascribed supernatural powers to Santa, but did all the work
themselves.
Nobody knows who Santa has to answer to for his actions.
Santa laughs entirely too much.
Santa thinks nothing of breaking into your $HOME.
Only a lunatic says bad things about Santa in his presence.
