Rudy’s Windy Christmas

While Santa and Mrs. Claus eat their dinner, Santa sneakily feeds his sprouts to one of the reindeer rather than eat them himself. The result is, uh, smelly, to say the least. Now, Rudy can’t seem to stop releasing windy pops from his backside as he and the other reindeer help Santa deliver presents on Christmas Eve. The rest of the reindeer are downwind from Rudy and they are not handling the sprouty wiffs so well. They laugh so heartily at Rudy’s rear-end trumpet that they simply cannot fly the sleigh as usual. It’s up to Rudy’s super-turbo gas to get them back home.

  • The ever-sillier terminology for those billowing green puffs and billows of farts will have them in hysterics. “Windy pop,” “booty burp,” “stinky fluff,” and, yes, “air poop.” Adults may wince at reading this aromatic tale out loud, but the reaction from the kids will be well worth it.
