An American couple was visiting Moscow back in the days of the former Soviet Union. Their tour guide was a staunch Communist party member named "Rudolph".
One morning, just after breakfast, the American gent looked outside the hotel window and said, "look at the sleet!". The Soviet tour guide also looked out, and replied, "Ees not sleet, eet ees Raining". American, "No, it looks like sleet tome". Soviet, "Rain, ees RAINING!". Finally the American wife decided to look outside to settle the argument. Turning back to your her husband, she shook her head and said to her husband, "Rudoph the Red knows rain, dear".
