Well, I have to say this was an “interesting” run with the contest… Here is the story that 25 sweepers managed to put together… (with a little bit of editing to make it make more ‘sense’ by yours truly…)

Unfortunatey, Santa Claus was late on his rounds as he trying to sign for healthcare on the Obama Care website.
