Waitin' fer the bus

Nice one, Asami M. :D

What IS this little guy??
Is it a baby sheepie whose horns are just nubs? A kissable moose? Some other kind of elk/prehistoric large mammal?

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 10:28 AM

Um, where will the bus let me go ? Back up into green lush grass and leaves???
Or, will the starbucks give me a green salad to mucha on while I ride the bus??????????

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 10:28 AM

Oh how funny is that. I hope he knows which bus to take. Wonder where he's going today?

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 10:33 AM

Knobby knees alert.
This must be a very cute town. The two humans are not even lookin'. Like this happens all the time.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 10:35 AM

I love the cloven hoovesies action!

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 10:38 AM

hahahahaha...cute...I wonder why the people are not running away

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 10:39 AM

DEAR GOD - I want to move there! How beautiful, and they even provide sweet animals to keep people company while they wait for the bus - Fairy tale land, I tell ya.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 10:43 AM

This must be from Nara, Japan, where the deer can be seen EVERYwhere and are extremely friendly. I remember a few tried to get a little too friendly with me...HA

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 10:44 AM

Meg - Ha ha ha ha ha ha! Starbucks. Yep.
Maybe it did miss the bus and has to hoof it.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 10:45 AM

Has to be Japan. Look at the sign on the ground under the deergoatantelope.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 10:49 AM

Yes.. interesting that the "don't litter" sign is in English also. Probably tourists do the most littering?

Meanwhile, the beastie is adorable. Whatever he/she is.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 10:51 AM

How come his horns are missing? Or haven't they grown in yet. A very charming looking place.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 10:53 AM

Definitely Japan.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 10:56 AM

Sydney -- I seem to remember that antlers are shed & regrown every year.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 10:58 AM

Theo, Thanks I'm learning alot here. He is very cute.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 11:02 AM

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot!?

that's awesome!

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 11:17 AM

Awww, what a cute ... er ... sheepalope?

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 11:21 AM

" ニホンジカ or 日本鹿!!"

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 11:25 AM

nihonjika AWWWW! Japanese deer. My GOOGLR translate comes in mighty handy.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 11:57 AM

I meant GOOGLE.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 11:58 AM

aawthink I will stick to english.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 12:01 PM

I LOVE that the people in the background barely notice. I'd be gawking:)

Googley (eyes)

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 12:25 PM

It probably happens everyday. The deer take the busses and the people walk.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 12:26 PM

I think this is around Nara, where these deer are sort of sacred.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 12:31 PM

I thought it looked like Yellowstone. The signs are all multi-lingual there, and little moose and elk and deer are a common sight.

Could be Japan tho.

And here's useta weighing in with "I thought it was maybe Banff, Alberta", although the mountains in the background don't look quite right. Definitely could see some sort of fauna waitin' for a bus in Banff, and most signs are bilingual Japanese/English because there are so many Japanese tourists. Also, the name of the pic is b234ffc which seemed to confirm it in an odd, numerical, sort of way.

Just a guess, however. What do I know??

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 01:25 PM

Oops, can't count. The name of the pic is b345ffc. Just so ya know I can read, even if I can't transcribe.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 01:38 PM

useta think it st patricks day. It's not it's firday.
mulk and witter ehhhh?

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 01:54 PM

It is a Nara deer. The horns are cut off every few years to keep the other deer and people safe. They are considered sacred messengers and are EVERYWHERE in Nara. Over the years they have become completely tame and like to beg for food. I was in heaven while I was there. They even bow when you offer them deer treats!!! (A very cute learned behavior.) They also obey traffic laws...I swear I saw them use crosswalks properly! They will go through you stuff and get nibbly if you don't feed them treats, though. :)

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 02:15 PM

Dear oh dear! Where could that bus be?

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 02:45 PM

Anybody know the Violent Femmes' song "Waitin' on the Bus?" As soon as I saw this pic, I started hearing it in my head. Now, I can't stop. . .

"standin' on the corner, waitin' on the bus. . .

Let's call the mayor. . ."

numine - deer tocks!

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 03:54 PM

It's a buck. Get it? StarBUCKS? The horns were just removed for some reason from the deer.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 03:57 PM

And someone apparently taught them kimono taste yummy... When I was there last I saw several deer try to take a chomp out of women's kimono.

Can the deer read a bus route schedule? I am afraid he might accidentally get on the wrong bus!

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 04:19 PM

Look at the dainty turned in stick legs!

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 04:29 PM

What an entirely respectable looking animal.

I'd love to feed it and in exchange be allowed to gently hold the forward-pointing ear for, oh say, a minute or two.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 07:26 PM

Aw hes beautiful! But where are his horns?

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 07:45 PM

One rubbed its in-between-antler region up and down my leg like it was itchy. I was its personal scratching post!

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 08:32 PM

Okay, it's a deer, but can we call it a sheepalope anyway? It's more fun to say.

 |  Mar 02, 2007 at 09:27 PM

[to the tune of 1812 Overture, or the Lone Ranger theme]



 |  Mar 03, 2007 at 06:27 AM

It's too bad the roads are dry in this shot, 'cause I have another one, but it needs rain.

 |  Mar 03, 2007 at 06:29 AM

I'm going through all kinds of rain songs in my head and gettin' nuthin'. Raindeer?

 |  Mar 03, 2007 at 06:43 AM

Bus stop, wet day, she's there, I say...
