Motley Moose – Archive

Since 2008 – Progress Through Politics

OK. I gotta get oriented.

First thing I wanna know is, where’s the beer?

Scond thing I wanna know is, where are the bathrooms?

Is there a smoking lounge?

There aren’t any obnoxious noise regulations around here, are there?

Loud music ok?

Did you know that a moose’s eyes don’t reflect light?

That’s why so many people hit them in the dark.

I live in VERMONT. I am very moose paranoid at night.

An apparently drunk moose cow was freed by emergency services after she got trapped in the fork of an apple tree in southwestern Sweden, the online edition of the Goteborgs-Posten newspaper reported Friday.

The animal was believed to have gorged herself on fermented apples, and then became snagged in the tree.

Emergency services deployed a crane to bend the tree and free the tipsy moose.

A hunter was on standby in case the animal charged or was badly hurt, but did not need to intervene. The day after the ordeal, the moose cow seemed calm and was seen resting in the neighbour’s garden.

This, to me, goes a long way toward explaining how Bullwinkle ended up with a squirrel named Rocky as his life partner.

And now, a word from our sponsor.

Oh, and….before I forget:


I may actually do something relevant at some point. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

    The official welcome wagon will be around shortly; I believe it’s being gassed up since it’s been getting quite the workout.

    We have one rule: play nice.

    I’m in Vermont, too.  Burlington.  And I’m typing on my phone so pardon the brevity.

    This site is ‘mooselicious’!

    May I ask a question?

    Do you post pics and youtubes here the same way as you do on the DKOS?

    And does posting from Flickr work here and work the same as that other site?

    I’m asking you, since you seem to have this figured out on your very first diary here!

    (am not computer-literate)

    Good morning and it’s good to see you here!

    Have you ever tried Moose Drool?

    I’m not a connoisseur of beer, but my husband is and he likes the Moose Drool.

    It’s Super Kestrel9000 [tm]!!

    Pleased to meet you, glad to see you have such a Appropriate Loose grip on reality.

    Since you brought the entertainment I’ll get the drinks. What are you having?

    Great to see you here!

    I was bonsai66 at DKos but haven’t been very visible there over the last year or so.

    I don’t speak up much at the orange blog, but I have been staying during the boycott to see if couldn’t make a difference. I feel exhausted and frankly defeated. I guess bashing my heads on a brick wall should be expected to hurt.

    It is a huge echo chamber…i am so so sad

    Could someone please just say something nice to me? I need a hug.

  7. GlenThePlumber

    Did someone call a plumber. I’m always here to serve, let me show you to your throne.

    p.s. I removed your typo, we need to conserve those for my comments. I usually drop about 2 or 3 per comment, so sadly there are none left for you. ;7)

    I am often late to the party, but I usually bring the best party favors (promise!).

    Please help yourself to some jello shots…

    ….an interesting cocktail…

    and a party hat!

    …because I kind of thought that what with my having been here for all of a whopping five days, it might be a little presumptuous of me to “welcome” you.

    Then I remembered that the FAQ says “this is YOUR site.”

    So…welcome to my blog!  😀
