Santa’s Reindeer Are Knocked Up

OTTAWA (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, and Vixen look a little heavy in the mid-section, it’s because they’re knocked up.

Ottawa-based mammal expert Donna Naughton says that if Santa’s reindeer were real, they’d be females – and pregnant.

She says a reindeer’s sex can be determined by looking at their antlers.

Since male reindeer drop their antlers by November, Naughton says the antlered ones guiding Santa’s sleigh on Christmas Eve (Dec. 24) must be female.

She says St. Nick’s caribou are probably pregnant because 90 percent of female reindeer are sperminated by Christmas time.

However, Santa doesn’t have to worry about overworking his pregnant reindeer because they’re resilient and “hearty.”

Naughton says reindeer are the best mammals Kris Kringle could’ve picked to lead his global sleigh trip because they’re efficient, no-fuss animals.

She says their medium size makes them easy to handle and they’re “very capable” of long-distance traveling.

They also don’t eat much food, so Santa doesn’t have to worry about them stealing his milk and cookies.
