or rudolph

Osaka-san from Azumanga Daioh has a…different perspective on Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer than most people.

Interestingly enough, I’ve seen similar comments about Rudolph from several people on the autistic spectrum on Twitter and Tumblr recently. So yeah, this particular scene only further supports my headcanon of Osaka being neurodivergent.

[Transcript: “Ya know, I think of this every year when Christmas comes around. There’s that red nosed reindeer, ya know? But that’s just terrible. His shiny nose is useful for dark roads at night… But that’s no consolation. If ya told a bald person that he was useful on the road at night, you’d get clobbered. Santa sure says some mean things, ya know?”]
