A Rose By any other ...( I want to be a Dentist!)


Shakespeare said
"A Rose by any other name..."
well what if Will was shall we say
Botanically impaired?
perhaps he saw a petunia
and he mistook it for a rose.
and what he meant to say was
a petunia by any other name...
yet history and litterature
and the common vernacular has
co-opted it and the phrase
is now rose.
what I am getting at
working up to it is this:

pop quiz;
what is the name of the dentist elf
in the Rankin & Bass
Christmas classic
"Rodoulph the Red Nosed Reindeer?"

I ask this because for years
friends and I have called him
....
and I have heard comedians joke
and call him ...
(same three dots as above)
and yet recently Hallmark
put out toys and stuff
of Rodoulph and company
and they called ...
::: instead.
and I looked and said :::
no it is ...
that is a missprint
and I researched it
and I even went to
Ranklin & bass's website
and I found they are very ticked off
because they get huge amounts
of fan mail asking the same thing.
the elf who wants to be a dentist
is called ... not :::
and R&B's response is
well we can not help it if all
of you people heard the name wrong.

Well I think it is not millons
of people around the world's fault
if all of the voice actors
in the classic animated cartoon
DID NOT ENUNCIATE CLEAR ENOUGH.
I mean getting back to the bard
he may have meant pansy
but we as a collective whole
say otherwise.

I think Hallmark and Ranklin & Bass
can not stand to admit that a typo
was made packaging the product
and they refuse to recall and correct
the slip up.

I also want ... name to be officially
sanctioned. and to forget about this :::
business.

anyway pop culture quiz
what was the elf's name
who wanted to be a dentist?

as you can see I did not say the name
I want to see how many of you also
think his name is ... not :::




Beware the lollipop of mediocrity, lick once and you suck forever

Was it Marlowe? Don Quixote would know, I'm sure of it.

Oh wait, this isn't one of your MENSA games.
