Oldie but Goodie

Remember this on Christmas.

According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game (and Snopes), while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year, male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually late November to mid- December. Female reindeer retain their antlers til after they give birth in the spring.

Therefore, according to EVERY historical rendition depicting Santa's reindeer, EVERY single one of them, from Rudolph to Blitzen, had to be a girl. We should've known...ONLY women would be able to drag a fat-ass man in a red velvet suit all around the world in one night and not get lost.

and now we know why men say "Yes, dear".

And is that why men like deer hunting? Is it some passive/agressive form of getting back at thier wives?

Just wondering.
