Normally all that male deer testosterone would leave them in a fighting frenzy over the single female doe. Thankfully for her, these adolescent males had formed a pact against the kid with the pellet gun, and had little interest in "extracurricular activities".

The kids at No. 54 were really bad last year, so Santa gave them a present of a trampoline - but left a surprise under it.

Britney never found out the reason why everytime she bounced on her trampoline, she would feel a sharp jabbing pain in her butt.

Last week on CR4 there was a question about how far a spring (elastic cord type!) would be compressed if a falling object weighting 95 pounds made contact with it after a 3 foot drop.

At the time I thought it was homework but it was signed by Bambie. You don't think...

Feeling emboldened by the recent antigun laws, the young gang of adolescent deer bucks mocked the terrified suburbanites. "Come jump on your trampolene!!" sneered the sadistic bucks, cajoling each other into a frenzy of mean spirited taunts. Soon the bucks grew bored with mere verbal assaults and began attacking people on the streets. "Oh if only there was some way we could protect ourselves" cried the citizens as they ran in terror.......

There is no way they'll shoot at us under here! I've seen their offspring playing in this, thing. They won't risk it.

Santa finally retired the old sleigh. It just needed too much in repairs, and he didn't have the doe to put into it, with the recession and all, so this year, he's trying a new way of getting down chimneys.

Trampolines, already a leading cause for emergency room visits, have despite safety nets and padding, become increasingly dangerous. Parents need only to bounce a few times, on what they may have previously considered a "safe" toy, to get the point of how unsafe they can be.
