What I learned from my 40th viewing of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer last Friday

--Santa is really kind of a prick. Sure, kick out Rudolph when you think he's different, and beg him to come back the first sign of bad weather. Jerk.
--Reindeer games bring back way too many painful memories of jr. high gym class.
--The right-wing talking heads who are decrying the "hidden gay subtext" of Happy Feet obviously have never bothered watching Rudolph, because otherwise there'd be protesters circling CBS's headquarters. (Incidentally, the folks finding the gay subtext in Happy Feet are the same moral watchdogs who found gay subtext in Shark Tale. This seems like a very odd hobby. Perhaps they could take up whittling or origami or something.)

I guess they got bored finding the gay subtext in spongebob squarepants, eh?
