Newsflash - Rudolph Demoted

Claus chose Vixen to lead his sleigh this year. Rudolph was assigned to bring up the rear. Vixen was promoted; Rudy was demoted, Since he was sozzled and too drunk to steer! Entry for Tania Kitchin's "Funny Reindeer Limerick" Contest (8 December 2018)

Bob, I guess we two old GIs saw so many guys like Rudolph that we can spot one a mile away. I'm just grateful that I'm 'back in the lead and didn't get demoted before I quit'. 11 January 2019 marks 37 years of being 'back in the lead'. Congrats on your well deserved win!

LOL It's almost like changing quarterbacks on the football field. Poor Rudy needs to lay off the sauce if he wants to take the lead again. Very funny entry for the contest, Bob. Surely a winner! Hugs, Carolyn

Tom, I hadn't thought of that but could be true. We may find out Rudolph is a secret imbiber after all these years! Thanks for dropping by - Bob
