    Due to the shape of the North American elk's esophagus, even if it could speak, it could not pronounce the word lasagna.

    And in New Zealand those animals are referred to as Wapiti.

    Sorry, last few posts reminded me of the Mary Whitehouse Sketch.

    I can do 3 minutes on Penguins or Pop Tarts if anyone wants me to.

    (apologies for anyone who isn't mid 30s and British for whom this post is therefore entirely random)
    Ah, History Today, I remember it fondly.

    But anway, back to taps.....

    Strange as wapiti is a Cree word.

    It is indeed, but that's what they use.

    Default multilegged creatures

    And just what manner of Giant multi-legged creatures might these be, me not being fond of said multi-legged devices at all?.. Spider = Me>>>>>>
    We just get White-Tails in the house (about 2 a week in summer and 1 every other week in winter. We get Praying Mantises (if Mantises is a real word or should it be Mantis's or Mantii) and 7 inch long Stick Insects outside but they tend to stay outside. In the UK though we did get way more big black hairy spiders in the house and one mutant one in the garden once with a 5 inch leg span that even the cats wouldn't tackle.

    Go to Mitre10 and get a couple of BugBombs (The water fueled ones at around 32 each), set 'em off first thing in a morning and then go out for the rest of the day. Also spray round the outside of your house doors and windows with "Mortein", that sorts 'em all out... If anything gets past that then you will probably need to shoot it.

    Cheers
    G
