Rudolph's red nose is a popular topic for songs at Christmas time, but what's the real story behind it ?

Drink, sadly. That's why all the other Reindeers wouldn't let him join in any Reindeer games, because he was permanently sloshed.

If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.

It all dates back to a winter's day long ago in Russia when the wife of a farmer named Rudolf looked out of the kitchen window and said "I zink it iz snowing, Rudolf." Rudolf looked up from his bowl of borsch and replied, "Nyet Olga, zat is rain zat you see." Olga looked again and had to agree with her husband, it was raining. "You are a very clever man, Rudolf." she said. Rudolf slurped another spoonful and nodded, "Rudolf ze Red knows rain dear."

Hurrah for a sighting of my favourite Seasonal joke.
