Santa Claus has said he will be suing billions of householders this year if they fail to supply him with food and drink without clearly displaying the correct allergy information.

I’m sure one or two would be fine, but I consumed billions of the buggers last year and not one was correctly labelled. At least now there’s a law that means I can sue their inconsiderate arses. As a result of their allergen ignorance, I had a severe allergic reaction last time and put on about 260 stone.’
