what the heck is the white stuff?

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 09:02 AM

sure looks like a fun-guy...

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 09:14 AM

cottonball morsels?

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 09:14 AM

It's called reindeer moss or reindeer lichen.

the fluffy clouds are appropriately named deer moss! not a moss at all but lichen, a partnership of algae and fungi!

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 09:23 AM

What is the white stuff. I sure hope it's not oversized mothballs. EGAD

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 09:27 AM

Clearly its deer candy floss or cotton candy
Just clean your teeth after wards deer without teeth are not qte

anner: Fun-guy, I snorted my lunch. Thanks for the mess on my keyboard.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 09:36 AM

I want to live in marshmallowland.

I'd lie on the ground watching all the cute fluffy things tripping lighlty across flumpy ground and I'd pluck fresh marshmallows for my tummy as I needed them......

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 09:41 AM

Is it manna?? :)

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 09:45 AM

those are lovely pictures.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 09:47 AM

Persephone -- that article is INSANE. [snerk]

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 09:49 AM

Now this is cruel, its a well known fact that deer shouldn't eat marshmallows. Their stomachs expand and they explode, covering other sweet little woodland folk in blood and gore. An Elf told me this so it must be true. Bibble babble burble, No I dont want to put on that jacket with all the straps, Helpme!

Persephone, that is a very wierd article. And reminds me of a very strange tourist attraction in Waycross Georgia -- a mummified dog stuck in a hollow tree. I kid you not.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 09:52 AM

Persephone- that poor skwerl is gonna be the butt of alot of jokes... ;) Pun FULLY intended.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 09:53 AM

*Very* full, Daisycat. Or so it would appear.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 09:58 AM

White fungi?

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 10:02 AM

in real life they are actually pale green, rob.

there are plenty of white fungi though!

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 10:05 AM

oh dear!! (deer, lol)

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 10:06 AM

i think the white thingies the doe dost nibbleth are cheezy poofs! she's got the munchies.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 10:07 AM

What dear pictures! =)

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 10:19 AM

If it hadn't been for Cotton-Shy Doe
There a-nibblin' on the forest flo'
Where did you come from
Where did you go
Where did you come from Cotton-Shy Doe

[stompin' & clappin' along]

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 10:22 AM

Seriously Pyrit...where DO you get this stuff? I love your brain.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 10:27 AM

Thanks, Katherine, now that I'm all creeped out. Come on people, you know that whatever weird thing you mention I will be compelled to google it until I find it. So great. Now I've seen Stucky, the petrified dog stuck in a tree, and I can NEVER unsee it.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 10:33 AM

(Playin' the ban-jo!)
DKN - It's a sickness.
(There's a ski one brewing for the next pic, it's giving me a Russian accent)

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 10:35 AM

Redzilla -

(ala Jon Stewart) Whaaa???

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 10:41 AM

Aw Redzilla, now i had to go see Stuckie too! Blast!!!

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 10:46 AM

Teho: Persephone -- that article is INSANE. [snerk]

Dontcha mean NUTS?

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 10:57 AM

Stuckie? Honestly.. there wasn't even a picture..*pouts in a rather morbid kinda way*..

Faekitty (Heather)
 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 11:00 AM

Hm, this is new. I've seen deer, and I've seen deer moss, but this is the first time I've seen a deer eating the deer moss. What a pretty deer! It makes such a graceful line with its foreleg and the arch of its neck.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 11:19 AM

pyrit -- you are my idol. serioulsy.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 11:20 AM

OK, how strangely coincidental...one of my colleagues sarcastically asked me to order one of these for him just a few minutes ago, and I come here and see that Mr. Deer's friends have one too!!


 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 11:21 AM

[joins Pyrit in the singing]

This soooo reminds me of Bambi.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 11:28 AM

Oh Faekitty, if you didn't see the petrified doggy's pic, you weren't googling hard enough.

I'm just proving that the photo is out there--I don't actually want anyone to go look at it.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 11:51 AM

Shocking.... Mia.... utterly shocking.....

Turning Marshmallows into Weapons of Mush Destruction... it's unholy I tell you...

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 11:53 AM

I looked..............

I need pills.....

wish I hadn't....

too weak...

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 11:56 AM

I looked, 'cause I luff to laff in the face of danger.


I have to second Redz. You shouldn't go look. I can tell you that it looks like a clay figure with a long, lean monster face and very white, white teeth. That's all you need to know.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 12:24 PM

I'm sorry Redz, I didn't realize Stucky was on the internets. If it makes you feel any better, I've seen him in person, and had nightmares.
He's the main attraction in a small museum known as "Southern Forest World" in Waycross (Official slogan "Where the ways cross", and I wish I was making that up), which is otherwise economically kept afloat by a large juvenile detention facility.

I have since moved to North Georgia and things are much better up here.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 12:27 PM

^ we have chicken plants instead.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 12:29 PM

nyer.. I don't think that picture is real.. would the puppeh really have died with his face in such a position if he died of starvation?

Doubt'n it...
But gah..
I need a kitten to snorg!

Faekitty (Heather)
 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 12:34 PM

okay picture and main attraction thingie.. I don't think either of them are real.. (but eh.. ya never know I suppose..) Must find an anthropologist!

Faekitty (Heather)
 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 12:35 PM

I've seen him in person and I'm pretty sure he's real! and if he wasn't, who on earth would make an artificial mummified dog and stick it in a hollow tree behind plexiglass? Although there are plenty of odd people in this world, I suppose...

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 12:45 PM

katherine, you are hilarious. I'm in North Florida and feel your pain.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 12:46 PM

Well yeah.. I could see myself doing that if I had the resources and mullah..(monies)..
alas.. I have none..

Faekitty (Heather)

What is wrong with you people? I tried to warn you away from the link, but you had to click it. It's like that old Ray Stevens song: "Don't look, Ethel!" But it was too late, she'd already looked (at the petrified dog link).

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 01:38 PM

You know, with the exception of what you would see on x-files or Buffy the Vampire Slayer, I'm generally a wuss when it comes to gross thing like blood, guts, gore, dead bodies, bugs, etc. But for some reason naturally mummified things don't freak me out. I've always been fascinated by how the earth naturally preserves things, there is some sort of beauty in it. But I'm still not gonna look.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 01:51 PM

I looked at the mummified dog and I think the best part is that it is on "coondawgs" website which I had never heard of. Needless to say, I think this will be added to "favorites". Just for the name alone.

I love the deer and the deer moss. The added joy of the "mummified dog" reference is just a bonus.
