this is why i stay in. teevee will give me all the pictures i need of the outdoors....

I heard about a very surprised motorist who had a moose fall out of the sky and take out his windshield.

Presumably the moose was surprised, too. At least for a second or two before it died.

I live in Arkansas which according to an article I read today is the third laziest state in the U.S.

So needless to say, we don't have a lot of hiking related injuries. Even our goats are resting....

i got bit by a mosquito once.

Thank goodness the goat was okay too. North Carolina ranked 4th on that list Amber. I would call and complain but the phone is across the room.

Considering it happened in Fitzmoos, Austria, one might have thought it would've been a cow.

And of course he was sent to Schlamding Hospital.

Can you say, "cabrito?" Problem solved!

It's Raining Men!Goats!
Hallelujah! - It's Raining Men!Goats!
I'm gonna go out to run and let myself get
Absolutely soaking wet!
It's Raining Men!Goats! Hallelujah!
It's Raining Men!Goats! Every Specimen!
Tall, blonde, dark and lean
Rough and tough and strong and mean

Is anyone else worried that wiredog knows the words to that song? NTTAWWT.

As God is my witness...etc.

This time, Walter had a scapegoat for his fall.

the people who wrote all that moose stuff have been sacked.

/a> EH







^Well that didn't work out at all like I planned.

You'd think I got hit by a goat.

"the goat remained unhurt and ran off after the incident."

Baaad goat! Baaad! Hit and run drivers are the worst.

Damn kids today have no respect.

Back in my wilder days I had a few old goats fall on me. I'm just saying.....

The goat forgot and turned around so the long side legs were uphill.

Or else it was another Austrian goat tipping prank.

He must have been pretty darn fat to adequately cushion a goat's 50 foot fall.
