Poor Rudolf

Image by SnaggleTooth Dec 2017

 "Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer" used to be my fave Xmas tune growing up. We always sang it with a last line word echo, back-up part. I can always hear Burl Ives singing it from the old cartoon in my head.

In more recent years "Jingle Bell Rock" became my next favorite that I would sing aloud for fun.

At work, one supervisor drives us all nuts whistling "Jingle Bells" every day, all year long. So I changed all the lyrics for a satire about work for laughs. I dare not put it here tho...

Except this part to the second line of the bridge:
"... If Santa Clause worked here, he'd weigh 500 pounds. 
Rudolf would  need big magic to lift, that hefty sleigh up off the ground..."

So even there I managed to squeeze in poor Rudolf. I used to get teased alot n identify with that character.

Apparently, in a recent craft kit project young folks were encouraged to mix-up Santa n Rudolf parts in any creative manner they chose. This was on the wall where I spent Xmas Eve.

New Years Eve plus Day Eve will be work for me again! I feel like Rudolf...

Are we seeing that Rudolph decapitated one of the other reindeer? Yikes! LOL

You seem to be smart in how to handle the annoyances of things this time of year. May the New Year bring you the best of everything!

I almost see antlers in photo #4. I've always felt bad for Rudolph and that the teasing was so wrong.

Gran Annie, it looks to me like Rudolf decapped by a reindeer dressed as Santa. Perhaps his evil twin... Yep

Tabor, must laugh at irony n satire, n hope someday I catch a break by not working holidays. Thanks

Colleen, Yep it does, even tho it's really a mirrored mouth! I was harassed by a group of kids for 12 years. Now just once gets folks in trouble. I ended up being friends with most of them the last year at least. Thanks

I do not like to hear about bullying - so sorry that happened to you. And that's kind of crazy that the man whistles Jingle Bells all year around. :)

Lynn, School was tough in the old days. I used to love that song until He did that 2 years in a row! Thanks

F' Rudolph!

Neo, they never said he was Schitzo in the song!

Serves him right for asking for a raise! Given the technology and advances, we can just clone him until we get a red noses reindeer that does as instructed!
