However, a joint British and Canadian team has reached the pole! Reports are that it is cold, very cold there. In surprising news the team was greeted upon their arrival by a six and a half foot statue of Vladamir Lenin! The statue was erected by the Soviet teams along with a visitor center which was completely buried by snow.
To Catholicgauze, a journey through the southern continent capped off with a greeting by Lenin would be a "Planet of the Apes"-style shock.
