Trivia Answer & He Made Me Do It

Hi Everybuddy -

Time's up! I will now reveal the answer to my Christmas Trivia question. The question was, What Christmas icon was originally developed to boost retail sales? The answer is Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer. In 1939 Montgomery Ward enlisted one of their employees to create a book for them to boost sales and draw children to the store.

34 year old Robert L. May wrote the original story and 2.4 million copies were handed out to children that year. Despite a war time paper shortage over 6 million copies were again distributed in 1946. Although he has had a few makeovers since then, the beloved character remained in hearts and homes ever since.

Take a look at this week's trivia question on the right sidebar to see how much you've paid attention to a popular Christmas cartoon we've all seen and still enjoy.

Now on to the newsflash! Yes folks - Meeka DOES misbehave, and we have EVIDENCE! Take a look:

"Echo made me do it"

I rest my case. Okay Mom - what do we say to Echo for blaming him every time the TP got nailed? Hmmmm??? Looks like I'm not the only shredder in the house.

Hmmm... I'm not sure about this. What if Meeka just wandered in and found the TP like that?

I bet Meeka is the one that always shreds and poor Echo gets caught trying to clean up the mess!

We knew it wasn't you Echo!! We missed the Rudolph one. We voted today though. Mom says she was probably wrong..

Of course YOU didn't do it, Echo. But maybe Meeka didn't either. Maybe somepuppy broke in and shredded it, and left Meeka holding the bag. So to speak.
Play bows,

Wait a minute Echo = we have long said that being caught with the destruction does not mean we caused it. Where is our attorney at claw?

Hi, Echo!
I was wondering why, if there are 9 Santa's reindeers, Rudolph is the most famous!
I love to do that to the paper but there is no one here to blame for it!
