Rudolph the Red Nosed, Reindeer? Are You Kidding ME?

Picture2“Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” is probably one of the most famous Christmas stories in the world. I find that sad. I cannot for the life of me, understand what it is about that story that any parent would like their child to learn.Christmas stories like that typically have an underlying message that teach kids some life lesson or help them to understand things about the world. Rudolph is no exception to that rule. It’s just the wrong lesson. Let me explain.

For those of you who have not heard the story. A beautiful reindeer is born, but he is a little different. He is not like the other reindeer. He has a shiny red nose that glows. It, through most of the story, causes him nothing but grief and bullshit; much like anybody who, God forbid, is different than others and the world just can’t seem to grasp this.  With the exception of Rudolph’s mother, the entire town was on his ass for something he could not help, and something he could not change. He wasn’t like everyone else, so all the other asshole reindeer decide that they don’t like Rudolph because of this shiny red nose.

They laugh at him and they call him names. Rudolph’s father even covers his nose with a fakePicture3 black one so that Santa Clause will find him acceptable. Yes, Santa. There is a scene where Santa, wobbles his jolly fat ass right into the shop where Rudolph’s dad was putting the finishing touches on his new black nose. Rudolph’s dad informs him that he has the nose problems well under control. He explains to Santa that it won’t be a problem, and that is son won’t embarrass him.

Rudolph has no friends, no family, and no support system. He for no reason was made to feel bad about himself. His own father and that White bearded, bag-toting, ho ho ho shouting, sack of shit that we all love across the globe, could not see the beauty in what was different about this gentle meek child reindeer.

Sometime later, a storm came in. It was a storm that could have halted Christmas. Santa was very concerned. (so he claimed) He was worried that all the poor little children in the world would have to go without the toys that his slave colony of elves has been working on all year. Santa did not have a clue, he did not have a plan, and he was screwed. Poor Santa standing outside watching the storm roll in, and he had nothing, but his dick in his hand.

Then all of a sudden, #Santa remembers Rudolph. He thinks to himself “Yah Rudolph That is the reindeer whose balls I have been busting all year. He is the one that has no friends and whose shitty depressing life I am in part responsible for.”

Yes, you see, it only in his time of need, occurred to St. Dick-o-less that Rudolph’s shiny red nose can be of service to him and to all the other bastards who ostracized him and shut him out. Their lives can now be easier with Rudolph’s nose.

So Santa, and Rudolph’s father, and all the other Shit-bag reindeer went to Rudolph, humble for the first time. Santa looking at the ground says “Hey Rudolph, as you know there is a storm coming and we are all really up shit creek here. Would you mind using your nose so that we can all see where in the Hell we are going tonight?”


OK, Now here comes the Bullshit.


Rudolph proudly agrees, to escort these “son of a bitching bastards.” He just tucked his tail and bailed these assholes out.

I would like to apologize on behalf of Director: Larry Roemer, and Writers: Robert May, Romeo Muller. Literarily speaking they have corn-holed us all. All these years you have had to know the story as it is and it is all because of these three assholes

Well your pain ends today. I, Tom Nardone, would like to present a more proper ending to this story. I now present the Tom Nardone ending.

“Hey Rudolph, as you know there is a storm coming and we are all really up shit creek here. Would you mind using your nose so that we can all see where in the Hell we are going tonight?” Rudolph agrees. (Now stay with me) So on the night they leave, the reindeer get harnessed up, and they all take to the air from the North Pole. Santa was relieved; he could not believe that his gelatinous ass was finally airborne, and everything worked out fine, or so it seemed.

Rudolph was at the head of the pack leading the way to spread Christmas cheer to the whole world. About twenty minutes into the flight, they were clear of land. Then Rudolph, seeing, that they were now flying over the ocean, breaks a sinister grin. He detaches himself from his harness and flies around alongside the sleigh and says to Santa and all the reindeer.

His nose increased its brightness casting a fiery red aura around himself as he spoke:

“ALL I WANTED WAS TO BE TREATED LIKE ANY OTHER REINDEER, AND INSTEAD I GOT KICKED IN THE NUTS. YOU CHOSE TO SHIT ON ME! I WANT EVERY LAST ONE OF YOU PRICKS TO THINK ABOUT THAT ON YOUR WAY TO HELL.

I WILL THIRST FOR THE TEARS YOU WILL SHED AS YOU CRASH INTO THE OCEAN, WHILE TRYING TO FLY THAT SON OF A BITCH BLIND!!

BEFORE YOU ALL DIE. KNOW THIS!! I AM GOING BACK TO CHRISTMAS TOWN, AND I’M GONNA BURN THAT MOTHERFU@%ER TO THE GROUND WHILE THE WHOLE TOWN SLEEPS!!!

YOU DOUCHEBAGS DENIED ME A MERRY CHRISTMAS, SO I WILL JUST MAKE MY OWN HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I WILL BE DRINKING A FIFTH OF YAGER, AND EATING VENICEN AS I STAND IN THE CREMATORY THAT YOU SONS OF BITCHES ONCE CALLED HOME

SO MERRY CHRISTMAS ASSHOLES, MERRY FU@%ING CHRISTMAS.

Rudolph then flew away leaving Santa and the other reindeer without any hope of survival.

Picture4I think if Rudolph had stood up for himself, like in my ending people might get the Idea of how it feels to be picked an and made fun of.THE END

I am Tom Nardone, and you are welcome.

      I actually have been meaning to find time to watch frosty on Utube and see if there is a story there. I had not thought about the grinch. I hope to write frosty tonight. Or perhaps the grinch.

      I do hope you enjoyed my changes to Rudolph?

        Yes, I liked how you wrote it from a different perspective. I never liked that Rudolph cartoon. I hope you write other similar stories based on the unbelievable Christmas kids stories (such as Frosty the Snowman, How the Grinch Saved Christmas, and etc.)

    Hahaha Tom! I love it! You’re right – I never thought of it that way. This could and should have been a lesson about bullying and accepting people as they are. I guess the ABC after school programming standards hadn’t yet begun when that story was written ; ) Great post!

          You are correct Molly. Perhaps I could change my sign-off from “I am Tom Nardone, and you are welcome”, to “I am Tom Nardone, and you are welcome unless you were offended, in which case neither me nor my friend Molly have a clue as to why you are here. Go back to your Facebook page, and tell everyone what an awful place the internet is becoming!”

    That just makes Rudolf just as bad if not worse than the rest of them, I think helping out when it was needed made him better than any of the dry nosed stuck up reindeer in the whole story…

      You are the second person in 2000 to feel this way thank you for taking time to voice your opinion. If you had ever found yourself living a life of ridicule as I have. You would probably see the humor in this. This is a make believe story and the point is to see the bad guys fearful for a change.

    Yeah, Uh, well, that was a little extreme, in my humble opinion. Couldn’t Rudolf say lead the slay around in circles until Santa agrees to split the entire Christmas season profits 50-50 with him? Isn’t that a little less of a nightmare ending? Christmas goes on, Rudolf gets rich, everyone wins.

    I remember reading this when you first posted it! I remember loving it, but also being amazed, because I’d written a very similar story which I had planned on using somewhere else. I’ve never posted my version (partially because you beat me to it, and a lot of the themes are similar). However, with Christmas on it’s way, and me without a blog topic, I’ll be posting mine tonight. I wanted to read yours again first, hoping that it isn’t too similar…..it is…. pretty similar….. great minds think alike I guess. I hope you like my version as much as I liked yours.

    I really love your writing, but with your ending isn’t Rudolph then as bad as they were??? Just a thought… When people talk bad about me I let them be and don’t act like they do. I just think of them as ignorant people with low self esteem. If you catch my drift?
    But, I loved reading your ending nonetheless… It made me laugh!!! 😉

      Erica I am thrilled to know that you laughed at the end of my story. I was written for that purpose. I do not accept that Rudolph was as bad as the others. Rudolph was born different. It was not his plan or his design. The other reindeer acted with spite and malice and did irreparable damage to his self esteem. Those reindeer built Rudolph. In my story they most likely were not happy with performance of their creation. They counted on Rudolph to be passive. They counted wrong.

      I am thrilled that you cared enough to comment. So few do. 🙂

        I do the best I can in commenting to most blogs I read. I hate it when they only give me thumbs up. Okay, I do it myself too, but that’s something I don’t like doing, so I guess I hate myself for doing so. (or should I say, not doing…)

    I also thought Rudolph should have set up camp at the Island of Misfit Toys, consolidated his power and then led them in a brutal coup against Santa, overthrowing the preening prick, taking over the North Pole and freeing the elves.

    Then they could have tied down all the reindeer that mocked him and let the dorky elf that wanted to be a dentist pull their teeth out, one by one, without anesthesia.

    Not that I’ve given it much thought.

    thanks for this and it seems rudolph was trying to ‘pass’ for a black nosed variety of deer. a child’s tale of racism and too bad he couldn’t accept who he really was. p.s. in this story i would not fit in either, really would have fit in better in the land of misfit toys.

        well it’s really lucky that my class can’t read yet, it is up to me to ‘translate’ stories i read aloud to them. they pretty much have to take me at my word, later in life they may come back and yell, ‘hey, why did you tell me bambi’s mom lived a long and happy life in the gentle woods, when you knew she freakin’ got blown away by a jackass hunter right at the beginning?!’ you should hear me during our ‘fariy tale unit!’ now those are some really creepy stories!

    Loved the underlying “revenge” theme apart from the Santa make-over you have provided.

    What is it that makes us hold this” We versus them” mindset? Much of the world’s sorrows originate from this. So what could we do to shift the perspective?

      As a an untreated ADD child all through my first 10 years of school, Yah I got picked on a lot. EVERY DAY. so i think as bad as I was made to feel. I would have loved to have been in Rudolph’s shoes. Very astute Jade

        Bullying is the worst. I was bullied at school too, for three years until we moved away. It was horrendous and the scars are still there. In those days it wasn’t addressed like it is today. I applaud you for having the courage to get your message out there and I empathise with what you went through. Would never have considered Rudolph as a metaphor for bullying, but I guess you are right. Double impressed!

          I will take that to mean that you sympathized with Rudolph, and you accept that he took the only course of action that was reasonable.

          But are you such a rigid supporter that you would wear a t-shirt representing his actions
