how do you ever arrive at the answer from that?

this one does not make sense?
Valentino does not mean Rudolph, and there has been thousand of people named Valentino that are not named Rudolph.
According to Dictionary.com Probiscis refers to a long trunk like snout, and Wapiti is a type of elk or red deer not a reindeer

oh...but how do you suppose everyone will know and remember what that song is. i can tell you 50 people who have not one idea what it is, lucky for me, i sort of remember but i haven't had anything to do with it since i was a little kid, under 10 years old.

I would love the list of the 50 people please Username. Are they different or including the 30 people who hadn't heard of Mary had a little lamb?

you want the names?? well most of them i don't know their names but i know or know of them. some of the people who don't know are some of my grandparents, one of my aunts and her husband, our housekeeper, like 5 teachers in my various schools, lots of students in my various schools, lots of people i've seen on the internet (most of whom i talk/talked to)......etc, etc......the list can go on. bascially the only people who would really know this are westerners who know their culture and people who really knows westerners well...

It was a cute joke, not meant to be chopped to bits with etymological meat cleavers. Why not save that kind of precise analysis for the math and logic problems?

I agree with Mr. Brainiac. I thought this was a great teaser, and am willing to give a little slack on the precision of the definitions!

(Although I did think Valentino was a bit of a stretch....)

I got it in two seconds, so it couldn't have been THAT misleading!

Got the 'red nose' bit straight away, & therefore knew the answer straight away. It didn't matter if the definitions weren't exactly accurate, they gave the general idea accurately enough.

Is that a different language? High vocabulary? I got really confused fromm the question, but love the answer!!

Well I liked it and it currently it has a high fun rating so I guess the critics are backing a losing side!
