Scunner’s New Job

Professor Fumblebumble and the grumpy elf
Professor Fumblebumble and The Grumpy Elf

I am in such a good mood today, even more than usual!

As you know I am a holly jolly happy man but today I am extra holly jolly and happy.  Would you like to know why?

I told you about The Grumpy Elf and his allergy to Christmas?  Well, I have found him a new job and he seems much happier.

Have I told you about Professor Fumblebumble?  He is my chief scientist.  He develops and improves toys.  The Professor is very clever but very absent minded and a little bit clumsy.  That doesn’t surprise me because he is Clumsy the Elf’s Uncle.

Well, I thought that maybe The Grumpy Elf could help Professor Fumblebumble.  I took my Grumpy Elf down the secret elevator to the laboratory.  We went in and saw that the professor was standing at a bench.  His hair standing up on end and his face covered in soot.

The Grumpy Elf Meets The Professor

‘Ah, you must be the unhappy elf?’ the Professor said as he removed his goggles.  There were two clean rings around his eyes.

The Grumpy Elf started to laugh and the Professor looked confused.

‘Santa, I thought you said he was sad?’ The professor rubbed his chin.

‘Och, you look like a Panda.’ Scunner laughed and the Professor smiled.

Just at that point there was an explosion behind him and we all jumped out of our skin.

‘That’s my breakfast.’ The professor ran across to a smoking bowl and looked at it sadly. ‘My porridge is ruined.’

‘You like porridge professor? So, do I and I make great porridge.’

They started talking and sharing stories about porridge, so I quietly left them to it.  As I stepped into the lift I thought I even heard The Grumpy Elf laugh!

Merry Christmas!

P.S.  Do you think my elf will like his new job?  I wonder what toys the Professor is developing?  Do you have any ideas?  You can click here to tell me about it or, scroll down to see what other people have written!

  1. He may be developed a toy that can detect Santa and show the person who is using it a video of Santa and you just fly the toy in the sky like a kite for a minute and pull the toy back down to you to see the video!

  2. I think he’ll do great!!! But he should stay himself, if he doesnt want this job later on, or he is tired of it, you cant force him to stay. If you do, i’ll be so bad, nobody is on the nice list, and all the presents you made will have been pointless! Muahahaha…hhhaaaa!

  3. So how did the job go for him Santa? He should make his own medicine in the toy workshop to feel better on Christmas and he needs sugar or something to him as jolly as you Santa! And a reminder Santa do eat to much cookies you don’t want to get to sick and throw up! Anyway thanks for a good Christmas this year and can’t wait till the next one with everything decorated its beautiful and it was the most wonderful time of the year!(=
