Maybe it was a drunken bullwinkle, thinking the horse was that little squirrel thing.

Hey, it could happen.

Was I the only one who read the headline and thought it said "beheaded"? I was suddenly transported into The Godfather...

I dont like those Norwegians Big Merl. Always being sold with the tagline "Its got beautiful plumage" and always pining for some damned fjord. Its really annoying too. And to say nothing of having to nail them down to their perch, otherwise...VOOOM, right out of the cage...

/Ok, I will stop now

Those responsible for sacking the people have been sacked, have been sacked.
2004-08-31 01:41:14 AM  
Damnit. That should read, "who have just been sacked."

I think you want one thread down, or maybe your humour is clever that no one but you could ever understand it.
2004-08-31 01:53:22 AM  
I'm glad I'm not the only one that instantly thought Monty Python when I read the headline :)

Love how they talk about the family talking to them on the condition of anonymity and that they don't reveal their exact location, and then give away as many hints as they can in the article.

"much to the delight of scads of tourists who come by to observe or yell, clap, honk horns and sing."

Somehow, 'scads' seems like a dirty word. Like a grizzled old bastard yells at kids from his rocking chair on the porch as he throws coffee cans and cigarettes at them. "Hey, you rotten farking scads, get off my lawn!" And the rest...observe, yell, clap, honk horns and God, is this for real?? There's something about that that is so unwholesome...something evil....something just....ugh...

radioberlin, I think he just escaped from that thread.
2004-08-31 02:02:58 AM  

Mass hysteria even.

Nothing worse than a lezzie horse and moose.
Dagnammit next thing ya know they'll have blankets that look like down vests.

2004-08-31 02:09:04 AM  
Hey, according to the dictionary, 'scad' can mean 2 things, either a large amount of something, or it can mean several species of fish.
Maybe this reporter is trying to tell us something, like that near this village are groups of fish-people who like to sing and clap their scaly flipper-hands to moose and horses.
/Just think about it.

Squirrel unavailable for comment.

Those responsible for announcing that those responsible for sacking the people who mentioned the moose have been sacked, have been sacked. There will be no further mention of the moose.
2004-08-31 02:17:54 AM  
All right! Moose and Horse take on Tha Man!
2004-08-31 02:29:10 AM  
Head for the hills!!! Run for your lives!!!! It's a pack of feral rabid mooses! AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!

/nothing else to be scared of
//this thread is silly
2004-08-31 02:31:26 AM  
Fact: Hunting stores, in Quebec anyway sell "pisse de jument" ie mare's piss to attract moose.

I guess it works...
2004-08-31 02:31:29 AM  
That is totally cool

Other fact, hunters have to be careful to keep their foreskins washed, because the smell of a dirty dick will drive moose away.

My best friend is a moose hunter, I don't just collect disgusting facts for the dinner table :)
2004-08-31 02:38:35 AM  
You know the moose will be dead within a year. There are enough "hunters" out there stupid (or mean) enough to shoot cattle and horses, how long will it take one of those assholes to find, and shoot, this moose?

The quotation marks are to differentiate the vast majority of normal hunters with the assholes who just get their kicks by killing animals, but have no respect for private property, the animals they kill, etc.

Here's a couple of these bad boys:

The sharing just warms my heart.
2004-08-31 02:56:04 AM  

First one was already taken, but I'm set thanks to the second. Many thanks.
2004-08-31 03:05:20 AM  
No problem! They started handing them out again, and I've got a few extra kickin' around.
2004-08-31 03:13:08 AM  
Thanks lucidity!

I got the first one.

Incidentally, I was trying to mork this story of Moose and Horse into some kind of speach about Moosealopes, but I got nowhere.

2004-08-31 03:14:07 AM  
work. not mork.
2004-08-31 03:23:44 AM  
No problem! I was worried it was threadjacking, but everyone else's doing it, so I figured it'd at least be good sharing karma.

And something about a moose and a horse and wow.
2004-08-31 03:32:14 AM  
After more than seven weeks, the two female animals are still attracted to each other.

Only in Vermont.

/... Or California.
//Lives in Vermont.
2004-08-31 03:34:21 AM  
It's a sign of the end times! Repent, ye sinners.

Sorry, wrong thread.

While researching domesticated moose, I came upon some facts about "Moose Cheese". Very expensive, and it takes 2 hours to milk a moose. No word on how long to milk a horse.

"We don't have any cows."

2004-08-31 03:35:42 AM  
"When a moooooooooooose loves a cow......."

moose'es are born horney

its a know fact!

"Torn between a horse and a moose,
Feelin', like a fool."

the vast majority of normal hunters with the assholes who just get their kicks by killing animals

I really, REALLY want to post a nasty response to this comment, but I don't feel the need to start an argument right now. I also don't want to argue with Sidi.

I would just hope that this "vast majority" is eating their prey and not using it to adorn their walls.
2004-08-31 06:02:09 AM  
How the hell does sight of these two animals together inspire people to sing?
2004-08-31 06:13:11 AM  
Fiddler-crab season!

"the vast majority of normal hunters with the assholes who just get their kicks by killing animals"

Unless you're Grizzly Adams or you are hunting to control an animal population there is absolutely no excuse for hunting, how anyone can even consider justifying a 'sport' where they line some dumb animal up in their sights and shoot it as it munches on a bit of grass is beyond me.
2004-08-31 06:52:10 AM  
So I assume you're a vegetarian, Cormee?
2004-08-31 06:58:55 AM  
Read my post again scubasteve - I said Hunting - I made absolutely NO reference to meat.

The very reason I am against hunting is because we already have an ample supply of meat.
2004-08-31 07:08:16 AM  
I read that as 'Moore befriends horse'..
2004-08-31 07:17:43 AM  
No need to read it again. I get it. As long as someone else kills and wraps your meat for you, you're down with it. But if someone wants to do it on their own, and enjoy some time in the outdoors to boot, that's just not allowed.

If hunting isn't your thing, fine. But don't try to tell me I can't do it. You don't see me telling you not to eat Cheetos while you fap to Fark boobie links.

As for "lining up some dumb animal while they munch grass" success rate in my state is about 10%. Not as easy as you seem to think.

To the submitter, moose season doesn't start until mid October in VT. And your odds of drawing a permit are only slightly better than winning Powerball.
