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 Baby.” If you haven’t, I invite you to go check it out right now, as it is possibly my favorite short we’ve come across so far.

Still not convinced?  Perhaps this video will push you over the edge:

 

What’s that?  It didn’t work and now you’re just confused and frightened?  Dammit!

    Moose…um, meese, mooses? Either way, they are tricky beasts given that I can never quite get how to pluralize them!!!

    Still high from an all night crank binge, Moose baby’s mother leaves him dangerously close to pack of hunters too drunk to tell the difference between a moose and a goose.

    So, like, is Moose Baby a Wild Kingdom-style remake of Spider Baby? Does Moose Baby stalk, kill and eat a neighborhood cat at any point during the film?

    No videos with Bud Selig under a sprinkler?

    The tender background music fits so perfectly when the mother moose starts licking the baby’s butt.

    It IS disarming, isn’t it?

    The moose playing in the sprinkler were really adorable! Then the Iko Iko moose baby vs. Selig thing happened and now I’m just not sure about the world anymore.

    So… am I the only one who doesn’t know who Bud Selig is?

    Sure it’s cute. Sure it’s adorable.

    But it’s blogs like this one that wrecked my door-to-door moose washing service.

    Thank you all for killing off free enterprise in America.

    According to Wikipedia, Bud Selig is—

    A ruminant mammal with humped shoulders, long legs, and broadly palmated antlers that is the largest existing member of the deer family and inhabits forested areas of Canada, the northern United States, Europe, and Asia.

    Oh, wait, I think I used the wrong URL for Wikipedia.

  • 12 Houndstooth Mind on Aug 16, 2009 at 7:33 am

    So Bud Selig has the largest member in the deer family?

  • 13 chrismartindeed on Aug 16, 2009 at 2:44 pm

    Yes, that is one of the privileges of serving as the Commissioner of Major League Baseball,

    Even George Steinbrenner couldn’t take that away from him.

    Re: Baby Moose and Bud Selig, other than the eyes, ears, and skin texture, I don’t see any resemblance at all.

    Oh, I forgot, like “moose” “Selig” is also the plural term for…well, “Selig” All of them in fact.

    Hands down, Bud Selig wins, although you have to give Moose Baby credit for hanging in there right to the end.
