A Christmassy Simulacrum

It would appear that Rudolf exists if only in the Hippocampal region of the brain

Claudia Racca, of the Institute of Neuroscience at Newcastle University said: ''Biology can throw up things like this, but it was a nice surprise to find this image. We were looking at a section of the tissue and noticed this strange but familiar shape. We then took an overexposed picture of it and the red blob for the nose and the white antlers showed up even better.

Well it may not be hard science but it surely ranks far higher than virtually every Jesus simulacrum out there... apart from the Jesus on the terrier's arse of course!

What about Dancer?

Dancer and the others are probably hidden elsewhere in the neural net that is our brain!
