The Russian Joke

I know it is early for this one, but I did promise Alex(ei) that I would post a Russian joke after he protested about all the French jokes....

Ruddy, was sitting, relaxed in his armchair. Having recently become the (communist) mayor of the small village, he was feeling quite pleased with himself. He was smoking a pipe and reading the newspaper while his wife fussed around the room cleaning up.

Just as he was fully absorbed in a story, she muttered: "It's raining again".

"No it isn't", her corrected her. That's just some horses up near the road.

He went back to the paper knowing that what she meant was "and you haven't fixed the leak in the attic roof yet" but at least she hadn't said it out loud.

He got right back into the article was was an absolutely riveting piece complementing the new mayor when she did it again: "It is raining".

"It is not!" he sternly cried.

"But it is raining, I can hear it and you haven't ...."

The mayor jumped out of his chair and roared at the top of his voice, punching the air to lend force to his claim: "I" "Rudolph" "The Red" "Knows" "Rain" "Dear!".
