"I think it's raining," he said to his wife.
"No, that felt more like snow to me" she replied.
"No, I'm sure it was just rain" he said.
Well, as these things go, they were about to have a major argument about whether it was raining or snowing. Just then, they saw a minor communist party official walking toward them.
"Let's not fight about it", the man said, "Let's ask Comrade Alfred whether it's officially raining or snowing."
As the official approached, the man said, "Tell us, Comrade Alfred, is it officially raining or snowing?"
"It's freakin' raining, of course you stupid idiots!!" he screamed, and walked on.
But the woman insisted: "I know that felt like snow!"
The man quietly replied: "Rude Alf the Red knows rain, dear!"
