Never Go Snow Skiing with a Rabid Deer


     rabid-deer-skiing.jpgSnow skiing can be a dangerous activity once you get past the bunny hill. It can be even more dangerous if you try to go snow skiing with a Rabid Deer.

     Speaking of bunny hills, after exhaustive research here at Rabid Outdoors headquarters, we still don’t know where the name originated. There seems to be two lines of thought. Either it was named for the small hill a bunny creates when it digs a hole or it’s named for novice female skiers. Since we like to make things up here at Rabid Outdoors, we’ll just say it’s called that because it’s as soft and cuddly as a bunny.

     But we digress from our important public service message.

     It’s a well-known fact, at least here at Rabid Outdoors that Rabid Deer have been trying to learn how to ski ever since Scandinavians on skis started shooting at them centuries ago. It’s just sad that in all that time, a Rabid Deer still can’t ski. But we’ll tell you why and why you should never, that is never, never, never go skiing with a Rabid Deer.

  1. A Rabid Deer never has any money for the lift tickets.
  2. You’ll never convince a Rabid Deer it should advance beyond the bunny slope.
  3. Rabid Deer are notorious for never having the correct equipment and then you have to loan them something, or worse, pay to rent it.
  4. While Rabid Deer never seem bothered by the cold, they always want to go back to the lodge for hot cocoa.
  5. A Rabid Deer always seems to have a bottle of bourbon, which explains the desire for cocoa.
  6. A Rabid Deer will always shout insults at the St. Bernard, who then attacks you.
  7. Rabid Deer are terrible at tow lines because they don’t have opposable thumbs.
  8. Your ski sweater or jacket will always get ripped because a Rabid Deer can’t keep its antlers to itself.
  9. Rabid Deer cannot be counted on to help in an emergency. They just go all spastic on you.
  10. A Rabid Deer wiping out on the slopes is one of the most horrible events you’ll ever witness.
