The Island Of Misfit Toys

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

Well, tonight is the night where they air Rudolph again. And again, the elf tosses the bird off the sleigh.

It's on right now....my husband is completely mesmerized. Terribly sad. And that bird is going through that roof in Finland in about 10 minutes.

AUGGGGGHHHH! That bird hit the ground like a sack of wet cement! And now the elf is saying "As God is my witness, I thought that bird could fly."

Saw a pretty, shiny, DVD edition of "The 50th Anniversary of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" in the store the other day.

Just think.

Fifty years of that elf murdering that poor bird....... :shock:

Have you noticed that in this special, Santa is a total jerk, first to Mrs. Santa, the reindeer, especially Rudolph, the elves, and just everybody? He should be on the naughty list. Compare this with the Santa in the other animated Rudolph movie, who is a lot more gracious:

For those who have tuned in late, Johnny's house has just been bombed by a flightless bird. Film at Eleven.

I think I missed it this year.

I'm sure some TV station aired it at some point, but I've been so preoccupied, I never gave it a thought.

Ah well....... :D

With Thoughts from the Polar Express

Postby prmiller » Tue Dec 25, 2018 3:12 am

The puppet's glove is tattered,
the dolls are stained with mold,
the jacks-in-boxes silenced,
the stuffed toys stiff and cold.
Yet skillful hands shall find them,
and give them life anew,
and find them homes, where kindness
and love are overdue.
So I will find my needles,
some bleach and trusty soap,
and use my skills, restoring
a toy to joy and hope.

Blessings,
Parm :)
I love the worldI am in...
