The End is Near (and we deserve it) . . . Drunken Moose Terrorize Sweden

Drunken Moose Terrorize Sweden

Every fall, moose — called elk in Sweden — eat the fermenting apples on and around the abundant apple trees and get drunk. Yep. Half a ton of skunk drunk fun. Sometimes, they even get stuck in the apple trees.

Didn’t I see these moose at a frat house during Rush? Click on title for text.

  1. Love the mouse in the tree. “I didn’t see it officer. The tree just came out of nowhere.”


  2. What with the animal kingdom? First the Aussie hog swilling all the beer, bears stealing dumpsters and rolling them off, now the moose. Humans are such a bad influence.
    (Gotta love the truck pix)

  3. I didn’t realize that drunken moose are such a menace. We need to get some AA going on up there.
    And I have been helping provide birth control and didn’t even know it! I swear sometimes just talking to me on the phone with the kids screaming in the back ground was enough.

  4. I fell off my rolling office chair when I watched the “Other People’s Kids” video. Hysterical. (Although it takes me 1.2 seconds of hanging out with my own kids to remind me that 3 children is plenty. A Procreation Panacea.)

  5. The picture of the moose in the tree is a riot. Poor thing. I guess humans aren’t the only ones with bad habits.

      Moose get a bad rap for being awkward looking animals. Could be they feel awkward, too, and so they have the drive to get drunk before they can flirt with each other during mating season. πŸ™‚

    I think I’ve seen that moose before up on “the hill.” Hilarious!
    Thanks for the inclusion! Lots of great links to check out…

  7. I know of skunks getting drunk from pumpkins but never thought of moose getting drunk on apples! That is one funny picture! Love it! πŸ™‚

  8. *skunks and squirrels.

    Piper, just spent an afternoon with tech support. Wanted to Frisbee the laptop out the window. Went to e-mail read your post, clicked and got into a better mood. Other People’s Kids should be broadcast on national TV.

      I am honestly touched by your dedication. Thank you.

      I understand your frustration with your computer. The day after I got my new laptop a couple of years ago, I was ready to throw it out into my driveway and drive back and forth over it with my car. Good luck getting your computer up and running. So glad I could perk you up today. πŸ™‚

  11. Thank you for including me, Piper! I appreciate your support.

    It’s a great list, too. I’m in good company!

Talk to us. We talk back.
