    Don’t “let” a moose lick your car? As if you or I have any say when a moose decides it wants to do something. Anyone who has been in the presence of a real life moose knows they do what they want. :)

    If you're not from around there, you just never know. Warnings work only when you're aware of 'em.

    And if that's not weird enough--there's a talking duck enforcing the rules. Wearing a red hat.



    Or this--a pic I snapped at the David Sheldrake Baby Elephant Rescue near Nairobi. Baby elephants sure are cute, but they can turn a person's fingers into cole slaw in a heartbeat.

    Moose will stomp the Crap out of you.

    Never confront one without a high-powered Rifle in your hands when in the Wild.

    No realli! She was Karving her initials on the møøse with the sharpened end of an interspace toothbrush given her by Svenge—her brother-in-law— an Oslo dentist and star of many Norwegian movies: "The Høt Hands of an Oslo Dentist", "Fillings of Passion", "The Huge Mølars of Horst Nordfink"...

    Finnish moose don’t lick cars. They just hate the world, sulk and feel lonely:

    Not sure how applicable that is in the Alpine region, but I'll bear that in mind (see what I did there?)

    But they don't :D

    - Pony: ˈpəʊni
    - Bologna: boˈloɲɲa NOT "baloney"

    And since we're here: for Italians "Bologna" is a city, not a dish. We call the dish "pasta al ragù" (from French "ragoût"… but the French say "Bolognaise" or "Bolo").

    Of course, pasta al ragù is excellent in Bologna, but so it is in other places as well.

    @Jakedog , when all the COVID thing is over, take your very light Italian amp, a pedalboard, a guitar, hop on a plane and tour Italy. You'll take it by storm, I'll come at your gigs and then take you out to eat pasta al ragù til we drop. @mimmo will come along, too!

    I saw a deer in my local cemetery in east London a few months back. I didn't think they came that far into London.

    I was riding in a 'hare and hounds' type cross-country motorcycle scramble this one time, when I was a teenager.
    It was probably 1974 or so thereabouts.

    I recall that it was a course that ran about five miles long, with dirt roads, terraced farm fields, and grassy trails, all marked with signs and engineer tape. There were cows and goats grazing in a variety of pastures nearby, but they seemed unaffected by all the noise and sweet blue smoke. It was a sunny, beautiful day.

    At some point, the riders all put distance on each other, and so naturally I got myself off-track somehow.
    I sped my two-stroke Yamaha across a grassy field, joined onto a lightly-graveled trail, and shot into a long, shady tunnel beneath some hardwoods.

    It took a few seconds for my goggled eyes to adjust to the darker scene, and I was surprised to see that there was a cow standing there at mid-trail. And I was going at full throttle, headed straight at her!

    I grabbed the levers, stood on the jagged brake pedal, and dropped to a slide. (To go left or right of the cow was an invitation to smack into a row of trees.)

    The motorcycle and I were sliding flat on the ground, and so we slid neatly right up to & slightly under the large beast.
    Neatly came to a halt, with no damage to either myself or the cow.
    I laid there for a few seconds and caught my breath.
    It was silent, calm, and shady, with only the ticking metal of my killed engine making noise.

    The cow glanced down at me and then let out a big "MOOOOOO".
    She stepped her way daintily from on top of boy and machine, and sauntered out into the sunlight and pasture to the right.

    I laughed, picked up the Yamaha, and gave her a kick-start.
    She barked to life, and I saddled up and rode out of there.

    I caught up with the pack, and held a good pace the rest of that day.
    Finished 4th overall, as I recall.

    Good times.

    :):oops::rolleyes:

    I toured Italy in 2015 and had the time of my life. It was amazing. I’d love to go back. It was simply incredible.

    I thought the problem with armadillos was that they tried to lick your tires while said tires were still speeding along.

    Oh, my dear Italian friends, you have no idea what kinds of atrocities we Americans commit in your name...

    Mimmo what is our equivalent for the problem giving this thread its title? Don't let stray cats sleep on your Vespa?
