    Overturned wagon
    Pappu, Santa's son, accidentally overturned his wagon load of corn. The farmer who lived nearby heard the noise.

    "Hey Pappu!!" the farmer yelled. "Forget your troubles. Come in with us. Then I'll help you get the wagon up."

    "That's mighty nice of you," Pappu answered, "but I don't think my father would like me to."

    "Aw, come on," the farmer insisted.

    "Well okay," he finally agreed, and added, "But my father won't like it."

    After a hearty lunch, Pappu thanked his host. "I feel a lot better now, but I know dad is going to be real upset."

    "Don't be foolish !" the farmer said with a smile. "By the way, where is he?"

    "Under the wagon."
