On The Impossibility of wooden toys for Christmas in Modern Ireland

[As heard in car today]

mum: Son, it said on the radio that Santa sent an email saying to remind all the children to send in their Christmas letters. Do you want to finish yours this evening?

(5 year old) son: *snort* - right.

mum: what's so funny?

son: Santa did not send an email, mum. He probably doesn't even have a computer. It's Santa. That's probably a fake Santa anyway.

mum: you don't think Santa has a computer?

son: No.

mum: What about a mobile phone?

son: Of course Santa has a mobile phone, mum. What kind of an adult doesn't have a mobile phone?
