You know what’s never in yer poems or holiday stories? They never mention arctic fleas. An’ you never hear about the time I had a case of ice-mange so bad that I had a patch of fur missing that left my reindeer ass lookin’ like two monks kissing. The jolly slob hadda put down the sauce and pull a team of elves off the assembly line to weave me a butt-toupe’. Believe me, those little twerps were none too happy with that assignment – Hey! “ass-ignment” – that’s like a pun, right?
They used some extra Barbi hair they had laying around – the color was totally off. The gang was havin’ a good chuckle. That sorry rug made my tush looked like I sat in freakin’ plum pudding.
“Way to take one for the team, Dasher.” That’s what they said – laughin’ behind my cold, sore backside. We been on plenty a training runs with 6 flyers plus red-shnoz. They coulda given me the night off, it wouldna killed ’em.
“Gotta be Rudy plus 8, Dasher, you know…union regs” they said, smilin’ like jack-asses.
So yeah, flyin’ around the world in the dead of winter with your rashy rear-end barely covered by a badly woven hairpiece – that aint exactly Currier and Ives, is it? You people believe what you wanna – sometimes the truth aint pretty. Like when you look out in yer driveways and there’s no Lexus with a bow on it again this year.
