Some moose just can't handle Sweden

Post by Eldorion on Thu Sep 08, 2011 6:36 pm

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-14842999

A homeowner in southern Sweden got a shock when he found a drunken elk stuck in his neighbour's apple tree.

The moose was apparently on the hunt for fermenting apples when she lost her balance and became trapped in the tree.

Per Johansson, from Saro near Gothenburg, found the elk making a roaring noise in the garden next door.

He called the emergency services, who helped him free the boozed-up beast by sawing off branches. She spent the night recovering in the garden.

The next day she took herself off into the woods with her hangover.

Drunken elk are not an uncommon sight in Sweden during autumn, when there are plenty of apples about.

Other residents of Saro had seen the elk on the loose in the preceding days.

Mr Johansson said the elk appeared to be sick, drunk, or "half-stupid", the Associated Press reported.

There's also a picture. Laughing



I doubt that even Petty can claim this has happened to him. lol!

Cider drinker- depends how old the Elk is, its genreally considered a starter or a kids drink. We used to mix it with beer- a snake-bite- from about 12 onwards. Very Happy

Oh how she teases him
her loyal lover
disloyal husband
oh how she makes him
jealous
with with a mere
turn of phrase

oh
hark!
his booglies throb
just to see her
knowing
she only wants him
for his throbbing
wanglebopper
and his lips like
jelly beans
scented of
cherry wine
and plum lipstick

oh how cynical
her desires
so basic
knowing that her
slummish
primitive animality
is just
what he
likes,

typical woman
flouncing her ripe nuzzlebulbs

her combed caterpilars
are trimmed
so elegantly
above her saucy
eyes -
whore!

oh how his heart
twangs
like a violin
and how thrummingly
his suspicious body part
thrums
behind his trousers

saucy amoral vixen!
he cries
but still loves her
indeed
that's why he does

Wisey! Will you get the *^#! out of my mind... Is nothing sacred? Mad

As to you, Eldo, have you never read poetry -- of the High Brow kind? Rolling Eyes

And, Petty, in poetry, only Truth will do - poetic Truth, of course. I thought you more discerning than that. Rolling Eyes There can be no lines to cross in poetry --- there can of course be lines as in lines of poetry, which you can cross back and forth with your eyes, but you know what I mean. Luckilly, a certain Lady will see exactly through to the pure and chaste heart of my words. I love you

{{{{I'll *&^%$#@ kill you Wisey, if you do this again! Mad Mad Mad }}}}

Canadian moose don't seem to have that problem. But they sure get cranky. For no apparent reason they just start charging and you better put away the binoculars and Run, and preferably scale a tree and hang on. I think they realize they look like geeks when chewing, and get embarrassed.

My, that is some downright naughty poetry a little earlier on this page.

_________________
Boar is badger, named after wood,
Not after forest but trees.
Where did you play on a rainy day?
Where did I eat bread and cheese?
Search inside, stay indoors,
Look up and find the secret is yours.
Your castle your fort,
Or so you thought.
The way is in four trees.
The way is in Boar in Brockhall
Under ale, under bread, under cheese.

I want one of these sooooooooo baaaaad!!!!! I love you I love you I love you bounce bounce bounce

“Our aim is to produce a hybrid elephant-mammoth embryo,” said Prof George Church. “Actually, it would be more like an elephant with a number of mammoth traits. We’re not there yet, but it could happen in a couple of years.”

The creature, sometimes referred to as a “mammophant”, would be partly elephant, but with features such as small ears, subcutaneous fat, long shaggy hair and cold-adapted blood. The mammoth genes for these traits are spliced into the elephant DNA using the powerful gene-editing tool, Crispr.
