One “Prancer” Short of a Sleigh Ride

The Sun reports on Santa’s Reindeer.

The reindeer which pull Santa’s sleigh are thought to have come from a poem by Clement C. Moore, “A Visit From St Nicholas”.

Alas, poor Prancer. I knew ye well.

It is more commonly known as “The Night Before Christmas”, and includes reference to eight named reindeer.

Originally, the verse which includes the names has them down as: “Now, Dasher! Now, Dancer! Now, Prancer, and Vixen!

“On, Comet! On, Cupid! On, Dunder and Blixem!”

But now-a-days Dunder and Blixem are often referred to Donner and Blitzen.

Although Rudolf is the most famous of the reindeer, he is not one of the core eight first mentioned.

Santa’s Not Happy With Obama’s Feckless UN Abstention

Feckless, backstabbing, passive-aggressive, petulant child-man Barack Hussein Obama leaves Israel swinging in the breeze for historic Settlement Policy vote.  As reported by YahooNews, the “UN demands end to Israeli settlements after US abstains “.  And Santa is pissed.

The UN Security Council demanded that Israel halt settlements in Palestinian territory, after the United States refrained from vetoing a resolution condemning its closest Middle East ally.

In a rare and momentous step, the United States instead abstained, enabling the adoption of the first UN resolution since 1979 to condemn Israel over its settlement policy.

Applause broke out in the chamber after the text was passed with support from all remaining members of the 15-member council.
