Rudolph and Hermey

The Husband and I watched
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
last night.

It's been a while since I saw this.
And I certainly don't recall this
claymation animation
being so politically incorrect.

I just about peed myself laughing
when Donner rebuffed Mrs. Donner
and told her she couldn't join him
in the search for Rudolph because
"this is man's work!"

I know for a fact that TH
is going to use that line a lot!

And is it just me,
or is Santa a bit of a jerk?
Telling the elf choir to hurry it along ...
I mean, really!

While watching this scene,
I said to TH
"It's obvious that Hermey is gay."

TH replied:
"Yeah, but they couldn't say 'gay'
in the 60s, so they said 'dentist'."

I laughed. "I mean, look at his hair," I said.

"Yeah," said TH. "And look at his shoes!"

With that in mind, this scene
(in fact...the entire movie)
takes on a whole new meaning!

Hilarious! I always HATED the fact that this Christmas special included a "Hermie" character at all...where in the world was that EVER in ANY Christmas story? Husband loves this claymation. It's just pure frightening (even in a non-PC way) for me.
