The One About The Moose

Prepare yourself for an adventure store unparalleled in the history of the world. I am confident in this claim because this adventure story contains a Moose. Maurice is his name. Maurice The Moose.

Maurice was, as all mammals are, born. However, unlike most mammals, his birth place was Teddy Town at Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

When he was born, he developed a taste for hockey, and has been wearing his uniform ever since.

Almost immediately after his birth, Maurice faced an ordeal of an epic, yet trivial, proportion. You see Death was jealous that such a young moose had more hockey skills then he, and attacked Maurice.

Maurice, being a big fan of Tie Domi, fought back with a vengance that only a true Maple Leaf fan, holding onto that last sliver of faith that by some miracle of unholy proportions they will finally win the cup this year, can. Unlike the Leafs, Maurice won.

Maurice was indeed victorious, but the ordeal left him very tired, so he went to the beach to relax. He loved the hot sun and surf, but the salty air tended to rust his skates.

When Maurice recovered, and cleaned his skates, he decided to travel. He went to Washington DC, and is one of the only Moose in history to tour the Smithsonian as an alive specimen.

Maurice is now living a quiet life in Canada, where all good moose should be.
