Q&A: Is Rudolph a superreindeer?
Hey, folks! Sorry to be away so much lately! It's not like I didn't have anything to write about; I just didn't have the time to write! Anyway, let's go ahead and hit upon a recent question, and that is this:
Q: Is Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer the reindeer version of a superhuman?
A: You know, I had never thought about that, but he just might be, because regular reindeer do not have shiny noses! Unless they're intoxicated of course! ;-) LOL
Thing is, not only does Rudy have a shiny nose, he can also fly, and as you all know, regular reindeer can't fly. Hmm. You might even make the argument that all of Santa's reindeer are superreindeers, because they can also fly. But then, perhaps it can be argued that these reindeer fly because of "Christmas magic".
"Christmas magic", however, does not explain Rudolph's nose, because if it glowed because of Christmas magic, then Santa would have made all of the noses of his reindeer glow, or at least one other reindeer in case Rudolph got ill or met up with Sarah Palin.
So my answer is: At least Rudolph is the reindeer version of superhuman, and quite possibly all of Santa's reindeer.
Next week I will answer a question that has been on everyone's mind who has ever watched that TV special, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: What was "misfit" about the doll in the Land of Misfit Toys?
