Phrase For The Day

I had never heard of reindeer games having any social meaning before today, and then I ran into it in one post and the comments to another. I started researching it, and I think both users intended the first Urban Dictionary definition. In the course of my research I discovered that it was also the title of a movie so dumb I'd never heard of it, and that the happy song from which it takes its name: "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" is about McCarthyite-type blacklisting and the triumph of the individual over conventional mores.
