Rudolph and Hermey
The Husband and I watched
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
It's been a while since I saw this.
And I certainly don't recall this
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."
"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!
