The Moose Of My Mechanic

So I’m talking to my mechanic the other day in his shop, and I look at a color printed picture posted on his wall.

Egad.

He and his son took out a moose this year with a horn rack that was 51″ across, 31″ tall, 14″ across each blade, and had 15 points.

That got me to thinking:

1. What kind of a moose grows that big eating just berries and plants?

2. Why don’t human beings grow horns?

and

3. If you meet a moose in the woods and it runs you over, and no one is there to see it happen, are you still flat?

P.S. He noted that the best part of the trip was the fun he and his son had together. Bonding over hunting. What a concept.
