Moose Baby

August 13th, 2009 by Conor Lastowka · 21 Comments


The person who took the above video would have us believe that the creatures frollicking in this lawn sprinkler are baby moose. This is puzzling to me because they bear little resemblance to the creature seen below.

Most of you will hopefully recognize Moose Baby, the star of our latest short “The Tale of Moose [...]
