Fawnfare

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: fawn fare

Sentence: In Helena Montana, there are over 500 deer living in the city. These big BAMbis are a danger to pets, children, and vehicles.. These big BAMbis destroy lawns, flower beds, trees, and yards. For a long time, animal control and the police, as well as the politicians, refused to do anything about them. It's not nice to want to get rid of BAMbis, no matter how destructive and dangerous they are. So these authorities were playing a confawndance game ... the police said it was up to animal control ... animal control said it was up to the police ... and the politicians turned a deaf ear. Amidst much fawnfare, an attempt to truck them back into the mountains was made, but they quickly returned within a day or two. They won't stay in the mountains. Meanwhile, children, pets, adults, and even cars, were BAMMED and hurt by the big BAMbis hooves and horns as they leap fences and roam unabated. Despite much fawnfare for the BAMbis, this fall, the confawndance game ended. The police removed seventy five to the food bank lockers. With all the snow and cold, the BAMbis have gotten more agressive and dangerous this December. It's hard to work up a fawnfare for a three-hundred pound Buck, with a five-point rack of horns, chasing you out of your own yard, and menancing your children, as it raids your garbage bins, strewing garbage all over the neighborhood. If you've ever had one run into your car, damaging you and the car, you quickly drop the fawnfare. Without any further fawnfare, tonight on the news, they announced another hundred and fifty will go into the foodbank lockers. (The above is based on the very real problem of herds of deer living in Helena. It is a very controversial issue.)

Etymology: FANFARE, FAWN. Fanfare - any ostentious, dramatic, showy display. Fawn - try to please; any action to seek favor, also a baby deer.

Deer silveryaspen...Happy New Deer. Take hart, when I hear you ruminate about deer...it reminds me about mny sister who has similar problem with squirrels. Of course, squirrels do not have sharp hooves or antlers, but they apparently are more conniving being rodents, accoring to my sister who thinks they are nuts! Just remember you have friends here caribou-t you and will not buck the trend to sing a venisong about your plight! - Nosila, 2009-01-01: 02:52:00
