'Twas not so many years ago in Moscow that a man and his wife were arguing whether it was raining or snowing when all of a sudden, the man said "here comes my old friend Rudy Davidonovic Andreiov. He will be able to settle this argument for us!" So he went over and asked "Comrade general, is this rain or is this snow right now ?" "Rain of course, comrade" said the general as he walked on by. The wife undeterred said " I still say it's snow!" To which the harried man replied: "Rudolf the Red Knows Rain dear!"
