A long time ago, in Communist Russia, there was a famous weather man named Rudolf.

He had a 100 percent accuracy rating for his forecasts of the Russian weather conditions, he was particularly good at predicting rain, and his people loved him for his faultless foresight.

One night, despite clear skies, he made the prediction that a violent storm was approaching.

Many said he had made a terrible mistake.  There wasn’t a cloud anywhere.  As a matter of fact, that day had been the most beautiful day in Russian towns and it was quite obvious to everyone it simply wasn’t going to rain.

But the famous weather man said, “If I said it is going to rain, IT IS GOING TO RAIN.  I have all of my Russian heritage behind me and I know what I’m talking about.”

During the night, sure enough one of the worst rainstorms hit the villages.  “See,” said Rudolf to his friends, “I told you it was going to rain.”

His wife admitted that once again his prediction came true. “But,” she asked:  “Just how were you so accurate, Rudolf?”  To which he replied, “You see, Rudolf the Red knows rain dear!”
