Not exactly. Reindeer are just domestic caribou.

How long until reindeer are blamed for the rise in violence in our society?

I was always dubious about 2hump camels. You only see two humpers in cartoons but at the zoo it was nothing but one humpers.

Caribou is what we call reindeer in North America. It's the same species.

Meh, not as infuriating as all the idiots on twitter that didn't realize Titanic was a real ship. Just disappointing.

I disagree, reindeer bites can be pretty nasty

Reindeer eat lichen. Therefore, Reindeer > Werewolves

They're not REAL reindeer, though. They're RINO.

Twitter provides a great service of announcing idiots to the world.

Executive summary:

Reindeer are real.

Santa Claus is real, though very dead.

If Santa Claus ever did deliver presents by reindeer, they're dead now.

I had reindeer heart served with a lingonberry sauce in Stockholm that was amazing. Very very tasty.

I was gonna say the same thing. There's a pizza place here that has reindeer sausage as a topping.

Some years ago, when the movie Reign of Fire came out, I was at work and a number of my coworkers had seen the movie that weekend. They were talking about the movie, when the question arose, did dragons actually exist? They all figured yes, sort of, but they were really dinosaurs. This led to the follow up question, did some of these dragons/dinosaurs breathe fire? Nobody was really sure, so they asked a guy in another department, who they all agreed was "really smart," and he said that they probably didn't breathe fire. Having stretched their minds to full capacity, they all stopped talking about the movie and went back to work, while I contemplated new creative ways of drinking bourbon at my desk without anyone noticing.

According to noted liberal plant Michelle Malkin, the Republicans "Won" Twitter this year.

Now shoo, little trolls. Adults are talking.

The plural is "reindeer", right? 'Cause several of those tweeters in that article put an unnecessary "s" at the end...

FYI they don't fly. Tested it myself. Don't ask it was messy.

You didn't prove that they couldn't fly, only that those reindeer you tested chose not to fly.

I think they're members of a gender willing to admit how stupid they are. Dudes tend not to want to advertise that they were wrong about something.

In 1995 my brother studied in the US and told his classmates that in Holland people live in windmills and dinosaurs got extinct only 10 years ago. They believed him.

Americans haven't changed much since then i guess.......

Since most of my peers had ponies, I'd have been surprised to hear it back then. I was stunned to hear a middle-aged drunk slur "but they live for, like, thirty years".

It's not just Americans. The moronic staff of my Australian high school fell for both an Onion article (going so far as to ban Harry Potter books completely) and the dihydrogen monoxide gag (which I pulled on them myself to see if the gullibility thing was a one-off or not). People in general are dumb as bricks.

I never really thought about the pony thing ever, but I was once confused about reindeer myself. I went from believing that they were magical animals that could fly, then upon learning that Santa wasn't real I also believed that they, just like Santa, were fake. Then to my shock, like many of these Twitter users, I learned that they were actual real life animals. But unlike many of these Twitter users this whole confusing arc of whether or not they were fake or real only lasted from for about 2 years from when I was 6 til I was 8.

I've been told that when I was a child visiting relatives in Sweden, I ate and loved reindeer pate.

I've been a vegetarian ever since I became aware that the chicken I loved eating so much was the same cute chicken I saw on Sesame Street.

But before that I had some pretty exotic, gross things, like caviar, and loved it, so I've been told.

One time I was older in Sweden driving with my parents behind a truck carrying reindeer pelts that kept falling out of the truck and falling all over the road and the smell in our car was so horrible from them. I still have no idea why the guy was carrying them. He eventually pulled over when he got to a communal garbage can (this was out in the country where you have to drive to them) and threw them away. But they must have been rotting or something, or maybe reindeer pelts just smell bad.

/I did have this weird time once where I couldn't remember if rhinoceroses currently exist or were one of the dinosaurs and are extinct. I really freaked myself out and felt like one of those stoners who gets amused/freaked out by simple things like that. I told myself I had to figure it out before I looked it up because I want to believe that I did in fact know something like that, and it was just a brain glitch. I ended up having to look it up.
//I've never smoked marijuana.
///I am on some bad psych drugs, though, and probably sound like a stoner at times.
