The Other Reindeer - A Chistmas Question
A Christmas question - I'm sure many of you know the answer (but it's the way I tell 'em). I was bogged down with family duties (chauffeuring elderly relatives) before Christmas and had no time to do anything festive.
What was the name of the other reindeer?
You all know the names of Santa's reindeer right? If you don't, shame on you. They were called Basher, Slasher, Knuckles, Lefty, McSweeney, Pretty Boy, The Enforcer and Big Al ... sorry scrub that, they were all in a Saint Valentines Day story, they were Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen.
But do you know the name of the other reindeer, the one everybody forgets because her job was to provide cover in case of illness or injury? Come on, it isn't that hard.
Sing through the song and see if anything jogs you memory ...
Rudolf the red nosed reindeer
had a very shiny nose
and if you ever saw him,
you could even say it glows ...
You all know the words, you've all been children at sometime. Never mind muttering about superstition and magical thinking you militant atheist lot, this is not a religious song. Go through all the words ...
Got it yet? No? The name of the other reindeer is Olive.
Who said there's no Olive in the song? Sing it with me now!
Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer
had a very shiny nose.
And if you ever saw him,
you would even say it glows.
Olive the other reindeer
used to laugh and call him names.
They never let poor Rudolf etc. etc.
To all my friends and followers at Wikinuts, I was a bit busy before Christmas and did not have time to post greetings. Hope you are all having a great holiday.
