My sister told me so; she was bitten by a moose once.

Due to the ‘Unionista Agitation’ at our beloved Capitol these past eight two years (they’re still at it, but even our LEFTIST Media is sick to DEATH of them, LOL!), our VICTORIOUS recall election of our REPUBLICAN Governor and ENDLESS political tension in our state, more ‘feel good cheese stories’ are just what we need! :)

A Møøse once bit my sister . . .

No realli! She was Karving her initials on the møøse with the sharpened end of an interspace tøøthbrush given her by Svenge - her brother-in-law - an Oslo dentist and star of many Norwegian møvies . . .
