Once there was a Tsar in Russia whose name was Rudolph the Great.

One day as he was standing in his house with his wife he looked out the window and saw something happening.

He says to his wife, “Look honey. It’s raining.” 

She, being the obstinate type, responded, ”I don’t think so, dear. I think it’s snowing.” 

But Rudolph knew better. So he says to his wife, ”Let’s step outside and we’ll find out.” 

Lo and behold, they step outside and discover it was in fact rain.

So Rudolph turns to his wife and says, ”I knew it was raining. Rudolph the Red knows rain, dear!”

  1. There actually is a holiday animated movie called “Olive, the Other Reindeer”. I’ve never seen it, so I can’t review it. And I thought the golf joke was when the golfer bounced his ball off of a little bridge over a stream and into the hole, thus scoring a cart bridge on a par three?
    Sorry I’m late, all I can offer is thoughts of well wishings. Call it presents of mind. 😉
