27 posts in this topic

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

The study looked at the deer's nasal circulation and found similarities to the microvasculature in the region with that of humans.

My Grandpa told me it was because he had been bobbing for chips (fries)!

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

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."

Sorry about that! s9402.gif

"These results highlight the intrinsic physiological properties of Rudolph's legendary luminous red nose, which help to protect it from freezing during sleigh rides and to regulate the temperature of the reindeer's brain, factors essential for flying reindeer pulling Santa Claus' sleigh under extreme temperatures," study author Can Ince of Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, wrote in a statement, according to ABC News.

i love how they can explain scientifically how rudolfs nose glows but they just expect us believe that reindeer can fly.

i suspect this is a light hearted seasonal piece, to demonstrate that Scientists don't always take everything absolutely seriously.
