While walking around either Carroll Gardens or Cobble Hill a couple of weeks ago, I saw a car with antlers drive past me. I noted the occasion, but could not memorialize it, for the car was moving. On December 29, however, I chanced across the car with antlers in a parked state. Here, I found that not only did the car have antlers, but also a red nose. Because Rudolph the Red-Nosed Car was not going anywhere, I had the opportunity to capture it for posterity with my BlackBerry Classic.
More cars should have antlers, this is certain – with or without red noses. There is a place for Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, and Blitzen as well. I will venture than many cars without antlers have been given those names – may as well go all in. While Rudolph the Red-Nosed Car is a nice shade of blue, I cannot help but wonder how the antlers and the red nose would go with a brown car, or at least a very deep red one. Because I do not have a car, and moreover have motion sickness issues, I am in no position to put my question to the test. But consider it a challenge for any enterprising brown- or maroon-car owners next holiday season.
This is not Rudolph’s first appearance here in The New Leaf Journal. Just less than two weeks ago, I captured a more traditional snow-covered Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
