No, I mean there really is. The dogs were going mental last night, and when I looked out my office window, a large female moose was standing about ten feet away staring right at me. We tried to take some pix, but it was too dark by then to capture anything.

A Moose in the hoose! Hoots mon!

Of course the Moose is also known as the Elk, especially by the Greeks, I understand, or at least that the way it sounds to me: Mooseaka

If it doesn't watch it, it will become a moose steak.

Nasty things mooses. If your car collides with a deer it will be damaged. A moose's torso is so high off the ground that it's more than likely to come right through your windshield, with devastating results.

If you've got one of these hat racks mounted on the wall it may have been attracted to it  :)

Long ago, I was driving with a friend in a VW, we hit a deer. Luckily, we survived. (Not the deer).

Geezer, GMTA, my first thought was also moose steak.

If you inadvertently kill a Moose, you should cremate it. The remains are known as mustache.

Would you like a little cheese with your whine? I've got some moosarella right here.

Moosarella and whine? Mmmmm lovely, but if I have a few too many, I might get up to some mooschief.

Poor imatfaal seems to have had all he can take of this elk thread. Perhaps it should be dead and buried.

I shall commission the construction of a moosaleum and find a funeral director with a suitable hearse. A converted moostang should fit the bill. After all, we don't want imatfaal to defile the corpse 'Moosalini' style.

What do you you think? Should the service be Christian, Jewish or Mooslim? The fact that the Elk's name was Moostafa should be a clue.

C'mon imatfaal, old chap, you moost be able to take few more of these puns.

I'll go for some cheese - I do like to add condiments to my moosarella to make it taste of late elk - ie very moose-tardy.

After that one, if you can take no more, you must say 'I only have mooself to blame'.

I had just booked a vocalist for the service, Elke Sommer, of course.

It's a moosconception to think that a moose an elk. I think it's best not to moose around with them.

I see we are running out of large deer-like puns; I will ask my aged, and obnoxious Egyptian friend Fared who is a climatologist who specialises in precipitation -
why you might ask?  because  "Rude Ole Fared knows rain, Dear!"

I think I will go back to bed now - my head hurts  [xx(]

I will get over your scorn with a drink from my hip flask - I always carry-booze around. 

Serious question out of the blue - do any of the Scots expats/Scotish-American families make whisky out in the US, and I mean proper malt rather than sourmash/bourbon etc?

I would think a Moosoleum to be the correct burial place for said deceased creature.
