I guess what I’m saying about Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer is twofold: 1) Santa comes off as a grouchy bigot, and 2) You’d think that the eternally jolly inhabitants of a Christmas wonderland wouldn’t be so bewildered and threatened by a glowing red bauble.

If you think this comic is too harsh, go back and watch the special. The residents of the North Pole may be festive and industrious, but they’re not particularly tolerant of their own genetically impure offspring. Anyway, Happy Holidays I guess.
