NEW ORLEANS -- Social media has collectively just discovered that Ralphie from ‘A Christmas Story’ is also Ming Ming in the movie ‘Elf’ - and we’re shook.
The rosey cheeked child star, Peter Billingsley, opted to go un-credited for the role 15 years ago. 🎄🎄🎄
Since a November 29th tweet was posted by a fan making the discovery for the first time... the tweet has received over 7,000 reactions... then after being re-posted to Instagram... the post received over 50,000 Likes.
