"Lo, how a nose e'er blowing" is another interesting one, from a sister who thought the Coventry Carol was about lollipops (she has grown up quite a bit since then Image. Then, there's "O comma, comma, Manuel, and rancid cats in Israel..." You wouldn't believe the look on her face when she finally found out those were not the words Image. <P>------------------<BR>~Intuviel~<BR><A HREF="http://www.freetown.com/Uptown/HaightAshbury/1055/ballet.html" TARGET=_blank>Balletica</A><BR>

Good King Wenceslas phones up his local Italian restaurant for a takeaway pizza.<BR>"Certainly, your Majesty" says the Manager ... "Would you like your usual"?<P>"Yes please" replied the King "deep pan, crisp and even".<BR>

According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, while both male<BR>and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year (the only<BR>members of the deer family, Cervidae, to have females do so), male reindeer<BR>drop their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually late November to<BR>mid December. Female reindeer retain their antlers until after they give<BR>birth in the Spring. Therefore, according to every historical rendition<BR>depicting Santa's reindeer, every single one of them, from Rudolf to<BR>Blitzen........had to be female.<P>So there.

It makes sense, Basheva. Chaps would never be so stupid to pull a sleigh round the world in 1 night. But don't you think it was clever that they persuaded the girls to use their names, so that they got the credit?<p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited December 14, 2000).]

On further thought - let me see if I have this right .....<P>the elves do all the production work and wrapping of the toys......<P>Mrs. Santa Claus does the cooking, cleaning up after all the elves and Mr. Claus...plus she has to scrub that incredibly sooty suit he comes home with........<P>The female reindeer pull that heavy sleigh all around the world all night long.......<P>And he gets all the cookies and milk the kiddies leave for him ...and....all the credit.....this sounds familiar......
