    Until now FUB, I had never heard of a “piebald” deer. Initially, I thought it was a pie made from testicles or testicles made from pie. Both seemed a bit strange and perverted — even for Oklahoma.

    So I turned on the googler and found out that it’s a deer with patchy coloring. Unlike a certain f***head state representative, the poor things can’t change their spots.

    Bravo, Whiskeydent. Bravo. Unlike the f***head state rep, your comment was certainly dimple-inducing.

    I’d never heard whitetail deer referred to as piebald either, but it’s a welcome addition to the vocabulary. Since – coming from the land of mule deer – calling them adorable or precious or quaint gets a little old.

    I agree. You stop thinking of them as “precious” long about the time you see one total out a Ford F350 Dually. And, mmmmm dimples!

    A whitetail totaled an F-350 Dually? Or a muley? Because I once hit a whitetail in a Ford Explorer and the damage was negligible. To my Explorer. The whitetail didn’t fare so well.

    I was talking about a big-ass mule deer in Brewster County. Not one of those wimpy miniature toy boutique designer central Texas whitetail deers.

    Yeah, see, I was calling the whitetails “precious.” Stop confusing me. Just because it’s easy to do doesn’t make it right.

    it’s your own fault, for fixating on the deer and not the dimples.

  8. whiskeydent December 15, 2010 at 9:47 pm #

    What we need is an F-350 muley. You could total all the precious rice-burners and make some room on the road.

    W. Dent: we have those. They’re commonly called “buffalo.”

    Is a buffalo a Ford or Chevy? And are dimples standard or optional?

    What made me think I had any business whatsoever playing in this sandbox?

  12. whiskeydent December 15, 2010 at 11:26 pm #

    Well, there’s the rub. You see, there’s no thinking going on here, thus thinking had nothing to do with your visit to said sandbox.

    Though, I must say, we’re getting in (drum roll, please) a rut with all this talk about deer, and I am now on the horns of a dilemma about whether we should continue.

    Piebald is also a type of color of a paint horse. Ever heard the song “Old skewbald was a racehorse?” Yeah so there’s piebald and skewbald.

    Yet another reason why this blog just oozes educational excellence.
