That will do beaver, that will do.
 
2017-04-18 08:03:34 AM  
Technically, the beaver isn't herding the cattle, the cattle are just following the beaver around (as they are sometimes wont to do).  But it's not like the beaver is actively trying to keep the cattle together and leading it around.

I believe that is the most obscure, indirect reference to something that I have ever seen on Fark. But I figured it out....

The actor above is named Oliver Cromwell, and in 1777 a British ship called the Oliver Cromwell captured a ship called Beaver.

PS:

Oh wait a minute...

His name is James Cromwell, but his middle name is Oliver. That makes it even more obscure.

And he was in LA Confidential, hence the Rollo Tomasi reference.

I feel like I just solved a Zodiac Killer cryptogram.

Actually, the British sloop Beaver captured the American/Pennsylvanian privateer Oliver Cromwell according to your link.  They seem to have gotten over it now, but it's unlikely the British would have named a ship after Cromwell in the 18th century (not that I'm an authority on Royal Navy naming practices).

The first thing to know is that cattle are dumb.

The second thing to know is that cattle are curious.

They would spend five hours staring at an unfamiliar rock. They might be there until milking time, in fact. A beaver is like a Game of Thrones Marathon to cattle.

Vaches stupides!

Moose, elk and American Bison often join cattle in fields. It makes them feel safer. It reminds them of when they were calves.

Of course, in the US, farmers paint their cattle with the word COW in day-glo orange during hunting season. But Canada is a safer, gentler country with fewer drunken accountants running around the woods. Fewer. A non-zero whole number.

I am not saying that Canada doesn't have its share of idiots. But they are much less likely to shoot a cow thinking it is a deer or a moose. Canadian idjits are oo busy riding moose and shouting "Look at me! I am the Queen on a Moose!" in a high-pitched "English" voice. Now that is idiocy Canadian-style! Cow-shooting, not so much.

Beavers don't eat fish. Mr. Beaver sneaks up on me, smashes his tail on the water, and scares away the fish. He wasn't even going to eat the fish and I wasn't going to eat the beaver. Mr. Beaver is just a prick.

Right?

A beaver ate through a tree some 12-14" across. I have no idea why. At any rate, as I investigated, I walked down the length of the tree. Maybe 30' from the stump, pinned between the tree and the ground, was a dead beaver.

It was actually one of the funniest things I have ever seen in the woods.

Huh. I never thought about how beavers might murder each other. Figured it would involve owls or something

My current working theory is that it was either suicide or an industrial accident gone awry.

Do you know how long it takes a beaver to chop down a tree? The other beaver would have had to sit there and wait, for quite a while, before the tree fell. I just don't see Mr. Beaver doing that.

He was either running away, or lining himself up to be squished. Well, I'm pretty sure he was.

I'm not buying it. It's a little too convenient, you know? You should interview all the beavers in the area and try to get to the bottom of this.

Pretty the language of the beaver is just smacking their tails on stuff. You've got a front tail. Go communicate with'em.

You need it to be warm so you can get outside and play. Your health is deteriorating quickly. Stay strong, UV. LP is not healthy.

Outside is damned useless, until the floods come. Then, I'll see if Mr. Beaver has anything to say for himself. Just for you, I'll try to speak to the beaver.

Also, I "won" the LP. What a horrible game.

Those LP threads are killing your brain, starting with imagination. I won't congratulate you, but I will smash some mud for you later today. I should devote some time to adjusting my front brake, but it still mostly works and only drags on one side, so I'm not too concerned yet

I'm pretty sure Mr. Beaver is an asshole. I'm pretty sure he's not even gonna talk to me, even if I speak his language. I may have to use force. I will have to check the laws but I think I can trap beaver.

If so, expect a package. Look out, beavers bite.
