A few years back we went to Gothenburg, Sweden to pick up our Volvo wagon.
No, we did not drive it back to California. This was part of their overseas delivery program, where they discount the new car and give you a free trip to the factory, then the car gets shipped back home to your nearest dealer.
It was March and there was still snow on the ground and ice in the river.
That may explain why we never saw any drunk animals stuck in the trees.
Apparently, this is a problem there.
“A seemingly intoxicated moose has been discovered entangled in an apple tree by a stunned Swede.”
“The animal was likely drunk from eating fermented apples.”
“…neighbors…had seen the animal sneaking around the area for days.”
“Johansson said the moose appeared to be sick, drunk or half-stupid."
“Half-stupid?” Hell, I’d say all-smart.
The animal snuck around, found a place to get drunk, and ultimately hid out in a tree to sleep it off.
Who among us guys can say that has never happened to us?
