The Elk Jesus. He died for your sins.

Ah, the great outdoors. The beautiful country view. The crisp mountain air. The moose hanging from his antlers on a power line?!

Yep, this is a real shot, from a news story about a poor bull moose who got frisky with a power line. From what they gather, there were engineers in the hills stringing new power lines. The poles are first put up, and the lay the power cables, which are loose and slack. When the cables are strung, they tighten the cables, which rise from the ground and then are taut across the poles. In a bizarre twist of fate, somehow this moose was at the wrong place at the wrong time and got his antlers tangled up in the power lines!

I'm sure the moose must be up there thinking:

You ever have one of those days? You know, when you are out in the forest, in full rut, and just hoping to get some action? I had to tangle with frigging power lines (no pun intended)! Great, now what the hell do I do?! Hello, anyone there? Fellas? Ok, joke's over! Ha, ha. Very funny, guys. Let me down, now!

I decided to post this picture on the message board, and ask for some comments on what the chatters thought was the best caption for the picture.

Award goes to poster "Nefarious Cube" for the title of this entry. Had me laughing all day at work (Ok, he wasn't an elk, but it was still funny). Think you have a better caption for this picture? Considering that only three people read this page, leave a comment and lets see who can beat that!
