You ever listen to Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and pay attention to the lyrics?
All of the other reindeer
used to laugh and call him names
They never let poor Rudolph
play in any reindeer games.
Then one foggy Christmas eve
Santa came to say:
“Rudolph with your nose so bright,
won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?”
Then all the reindeer loved him
as they shouted out with glee,
Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer,
you’ll go down in history!
The reindeer were total bigots. Because Rudolph had a red nose, they shunned him like he had leprosy.
Oh, and Santa–he never intervened to teach them about tolerance and loving their fellow reindeer. Not until “one foggy Christmas eve” does Santa get religion, but only because he was worried about being late on his rounds. Suddenly he realizes he can put Rudolph’s disability to good use.
So of course now that Rudolph is a rock star, all the reindeer who’d pissed on him before turn into star f–kers.
I’ll never look at reindeer the same again.
