Everything that you know about Rudolph is wrong

Michele reposted her classic rewrite of one of the holiday season's favorite TV specials. Excerpt:

So what happens? Does Rudolph finally have enough of the bullying and dons a trenchcoat, listens to Marilyn Manson and mows down his enemies? No, Rudolph goes off on an adventure. He escapes his problems instead of confronting them. When you think about it, running away on adventure isn't so bad, as he could have turned to a life on the streets, doing "favors" for old barflys in exchange for salt licks.

I really missed Michele's blogging during her absence. And her post put me in mind to repost an old image:

That would have been the perfect image to put with the post.

Now, it might make the perfect Christmas card :)

Color me cynical, but the message I always got from that show was that if you're a freak, the mob will attack and abuse you, until and unless they find a way to exploit you.

"Then all the reindeer loved him" my ass.

The next Christmas, Santa had installed a GPS, and Rudolph was run out of town.
