There’s no escape, Clause

santaclause3

“I must admit I have given up on Santa Clause since about the age of five.”

So said Christopher Famous in the Bermuda Sun yesterday and it got me thinking:

If it’s Santa Clause, what are the elves? Subordinate Clauses? Or perhaps they are Dependent Clauses. After all, without Santa, they are lost, right?

That makes Mrs Clause an Essential Relative Clause, yes?

And why did young Christopher give up on Mr Clause? Did he find out that Santa had run off to the South Pole with Mrs Phrase?

Time to stop.
