The other day I was in the car listening to the radio,  when the popular Christmas song Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer came on . I began singing along with it and for the first time realized how the words to this catchy tune tell a very sad story.

t starts off fine describing a reindeer with  his red nose  as the lyrics are:

 Rudolph the red nosed reindeer                                                    

Had a very shiny nose

And if you ever saw it,

You would even say it glows

Then it goes on to describe how the reindeer was bullied and ostracized, simply  because he looked different. This verse actually saddened me as I listened to the following verse:

All of the other reindeer

Used to laugh and call him names

They never let poor Rudolph

Play in any reindeer games.

Luckily for Rudolph, Santa became  Rudolph’s savior as Santa  came to his rescue by  acknowledging Rudolph’s difference and turning his physical  difference and uniqueness into an advantage and an asset. It was because of Rudolph’s   unique difference which allowed    Santa to  navigate his sleigh through the foggy night.The lyrics are as follows:

 

Then one foggy Christmas night

Santa came to say

“Rudoph with your nose so bright

Won’t you guide my sleigh night?

 

Now here is the part that disturbs me. Only because Rudolph was useful and did something heroic based on his  physical difference did the other reindeer finally accept him.  Otherwise , they would never have  accepted him into their group and allow him to play reindeer games with them. Below are the lyrics which disturbed me.

 

Then all the reindeer loved him

As they shouted out with glee

Rudolph the red nosed reindeer

You’ll go down in history.

These superficial  reindeer needed to accept Rudolph red nose and all from the beginning, not because he did something which helped Santa. Obviously these  TOXIC reindeer only liked him because he  now had Santa’s blessing who accepted Rudolph’s uniqueness which allowed him to become a  hero.

I don’t think the song  should end there. To me, it is not is finished.  It’s missing several  verses in my view so I took  my songwriting and skills to task and took the  liberty to  write some very much needed verses that apply in this  his day and age of zero tolerance for bullying.  So here are the additional lyrics I wrote  to the tune of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. 

Then Rudolph told all the reindeer

You hurt my feelings when teasing me

Just cuz someone looks different

You don’t have to be a bully 

 

We come in all shapes and sizes

And  just  to be direct

We all want  love and kindness

And  to be treated with respect.

 

I hope you learned your lesson

That teasing makes others blue

Everyone has feelings

Just like  me and you .

 

So in the  Spirit of  Christmas 

Where forgiveness is number one

Never  tease others

Cuz you can  really hurt someone.

 

While the song written back in 1939  by Robert L. May and  published by Montgomery Ward  and adapted into songs, television specials feature films and has become a figure of Christmas folklore, I believe that these  additional meaningful verses are  now needed  to teach children about the consequences of bullying  and hurt feelings in this age of Zero Tolerance for  Bullying.

                                                                                                   

  MERRY CHRISTMAS   XO

Henne’s Body Language on You Tube Videos and Wife Swap Reveal His Violent Temper While Kids Rap Video Show’s His Horrible Parenting
October 18, 2009

Falcon in Feces
After watching the 100 episode on Wife Swap where Richard Heene throws food and milk at theswapped wife on the show, watching a previous Wife Swap show where he verbally abusedthe swapped wife, and after watching him brutally yell at his own wife Mayumi for not properly holding down the teather on his “flying saucer”, along with his defensiveness on all of the talk shows on which he appeared, one can only wonder what he did to poor little Falcon for spilling the beans.
      Little Falcon told the world that they were doing the stunt for the show and I am sure that infuriated his father. In subsequent interviews Falcon’s wide eyed look indicated fear. While his father clung to the boy and carried him around like a show pony, the boy looked tense and worried as did his other brothers who sat next to him on the show.                                                                                                                                                                                   They looked miserable being there and acted as though they couldn’t wait until everything was over. Provided that Falcon’s vomiting wasn’t induced by giving him something like ipecac, it also indicated how his stomach must have been nervous and how sick he got from all the fear.
     Who knows what happened behind closed doors when there were no camera rolling. Richard even admitted on camera on all of the morning shows that he yelled at Falcon too much. Who knows how much yelling went on when no one was there to witness Richard’s verbal abuse towards his son.                                                                                                                                                                                       I also came across another video that the father no doubt masterminded where his boys were singing a rap song “ Not Pussified”. At first it may have looked cute but if one looked at what the three little boys were rapping about, it was repulsive and full of bathroom humor. For a father to allow such young boys from ages 5 to 8 at the time to speak and act in such a vulgar way is unconscionable.
     There is a scene in the video where little Falcon is sitting on a toilet wearing a Santa Claus hat covered in feces. Then you see little Falcon burping as the boys continue to sing lyricslike “I’ll run your ass over” and “you aint no shit” “he’s my papa he’ll make it stick that’s right daddy he aint no dick”. Then you see them singing “beans beans are good for your heart, the more you eat the more you fart” as you see them with the head in their plates licking them while there are making farting noises in the background. If that isn’t bad enough you see one of the boys with a finger stuck up his nose Then they sing the lyrics “ I looked up in the tree and what did I see a faggot trying to pee on me.”
      That’s right, “faggot”. That is what the father is allowing his kids to say. I couldn’t believe what I heard so I played it three times to make sure that was the word used. To encourage a child to sing such a hateful word is horrible. Then you see a picture of a rooster which is meant to be a “cock” (rhymes with rock) as the kids continue to rap “So I picked up a rock and threw it at his head, I took him to the doctor and the doctor said sorry about that he’s dead.”
     To encourage your children to speak like that is horrible parenting. Also these are the same kids who said the F word and cursed out the swapped wives on wife swap. In fact, the latest swapped wife who has been interviewed by the press about the Heene family confirms how little Falcon is full of curse words and obscene gestures.
      Besides this, Richard puts these children in harms way by taking them storm chasing. What if one of  the kids ran into the storm and got killed? Where is DFS? This family needs to be investigated.
