Santa had arrived ea ….

Santa had arrived early at the stadium for the first cricket game of the series between local rival teams only to realize that he had left his ticket at home. Not wanting to miss any of the first inning, he went to the ticket booth and got in a long line for another seat. After an hour`s wait he was just a few feet from the booth when a voice called out, “Hey, Banta!” He looked up, stepped out of line and tried to find the owner of the voice-with no success.Then he realized he had lost his place in the line, and had to go back to the end of the line and wait all over again.


After he had purchased his ticket, he was thirsty, so he went to buy a coke. The line at the concession stand was also very long. But since the game hadn`t started he decided to wait. Just as he got to the window, a voice called out”Hey, Banta!” Again He tried to find the voice and got out of line as he wandered looking for the owner of the voice. But no luck.


He was very upset as he got back in line for his coke.Finally he had his coke and took his seat eager for the game to begin. As he waited for the first pitch, he heard the voice calling, “Hey, Banta!” once more.


Furious, He stood up and yelled at the top of his lungs,”My name isn`t Banta!”
