Deer Motorists…


It’s an all-too-familiar scenario; out driving late at night, when suddenly deer appear on the road, blundering into the way with negative consequences to both the deer and the vehicle.  Since turnabout is fair play, we are shown a reverse case safety promo where two deer are motoring when a clueless human walks onto the road, totally absorbed in his texting.  The deer are forced to brake sharply, and honk their horn.  The clueless human looks up from his texting, startled, and hastens to finish his transit across the road.  The deer couple look at one another, and shake their heads.  A moment later, a trio of texting humans perform the same stunt before the now-stopped vehicle. They often travel in groups, you know…

“Don’t text while on the road,” the public service announcer then intones.  “It’s bad for deer, and for humans”.  Some humans are every bit as self-absorbed, location inappropriate, and clueless as those portrayed, too…

    So, true. I can just imagine some semi-literate southern Californian stoner saying: “Honk their horn? Dude! They’re deer. Shouldn’t that be ‘honk their antlers?’ “

      As a fox, I’ve never really suffered from horn or antler envy, although such does sound vaguely Freudian. We’re all about tails, that and slyness…

    Btw: if deer were capable of farming, would they drive John Man tractors?

      That sounds like a good image for a Gary Larson “Far Side” comic!

        I know you were probably hoping for one of the foxhounds or fox terriers. But, “Best in Show” for the 2017 WKC Dog Show has just been won by a German Shepherd dog named Rumor. So, with all due respect to Ms. Adele Adkins, repeat after me:

        “Rumor has it! Oooooh!”
        “Rumor has it! Oooooh!”
        “Rumor has it! Oooooh!”
        “Rumor has it! Oooooh!”
