I actually read the thing about the secret meaning behind the deer from someone, but I don't remember if it was here or on threekingdoms.com.

In either case, Cao Pi got burned.

ANd it wasn't really a burn, because Cao Pi did embrace him afterwards and declare he would be kind a filial. Also, Rui copied his pappa when he killed Empress Mao in favour of another Empress Guo.
