That female is so dumb, I am surprised she doesn’t think the phone dials itself.
I didn’t know deer could read. Awesome.
She must live in a bubble, and thinking that she is a “lone voice, crying out in the wilderness.” I’m kind of shocked that no one has taken the time to educate her, that these crossings have been used and reused by deer for hundreds, if not thousands of years, long before there were ever roads or freeways! I can’t believe that she REALLY doesn’t know the truth! No disparaging meant, but I wonder if she’s blonde???? I’m sorry to all of you natural blondes, which if I’d had anything to say about it, would have loved to have been born blonde!
liz, what do u mean the deer have used and reused the signs..they cant read..hahahahahahaha
Yo, mary bare, I did NOT say that the deer have used or reused the SIGNS!!! What I said is that they have used these trails, paths, and crossings, etc., for ages. The parents take their young on them, as do the other deer in their groups or herds, and then when they grow up they take their fawns on these same trails, and on and on, forever. THAT is WHY they put the signs on the roads at those locations, to warn MOTORISTS that this is where the deer cross, hence the deer crossing signs. They put them there to warn US, not to educate the deer. In the woods, there are deer trails, narrow paths that the deer walk in. They are about 8-12″ wide, and the deer follow in the footsteps of each other, using the same paths forever and ever. They are creatures of habit, and the highway dept. crews put up signs to alert us, of the dangers to us, especially at dusk, and during the night, which is usually when they feed and travel. I’m sorry I didn’t make my remark clearer.
You forgot to point out that PEOPLE do the same thing including reuse of trails, which is why we have roads & freeways.
HI to mary bare and Randy G: Randy you’re totally right, we are like the deer, in that we create roads and freeways on our well worn paths.
mary bare: I didn’t mean to jump you, I thought you were comparing me to the fruitcake! Sorry, it was my bad to react to your words! I appreciate your views, and most others.
heavens no, liz..there is no one to compare the “fruitcake” with.i’m so sorry f i came off like that..i enjoy the site too much to have to give it up.. may we all start over and try to get along
mary bare, no worries, I’d feel awful if you gave up this site because we both misunderstood each other’s remarks. All is great! It’s just free speech! I know that too often what I’m saying is often not what people hear, so once we cleared that up, like I said ~ all is great! Keep posting, and if one of us misunderstands another, we can work it out! Have an AWESOME day!!!
It would appear to me that you think those signs are a calling card for the deer. 3 things you need to be aware of.
1) The deer can’t read, Any moron would know that.
2) you have had 3 accidents right after you go by the signs ? You know the area where the signs are and you choose to ignore them. You deserve what you get. and 3) the deer were here a long ling time before you were and they have the right to go wherever they want to, and cross wherever they want. Those signs are there for your protection as well as theirs. I have ssn a lot of car deer accidents and you can consider yourself lucky that you were not killed. You need to learn to slow down and drive like a normal person, or park it and let someone responsible do the driving !
i know that liz..the deer use the same trails, but that woman was implying that the signs should be moved, just like the deer can read them..maybe im not getting it..anyway, i give up..from now on, ill agree with everyone else..
she is a mental case..is she that stupid? does she think deer can read the signs…omg,is a dumb person..id be ashamed if it were me..DUH!!!!!!!!
i have to comment again..that is the dumbest woman ive ever heard before..im surprised the commentators didnt say something to her..OMG!!!!!
What was this woman smoking? For real, does she really think that the deer can read “deer crossing signs?” And to put the signs in a school zone?” I sat back and listened to this conversation….and trust me if she was paying attention to the sign, slow her driving down, maybe three deer wouldn’t have hit her three cars. Well maybe no one else will say it on here, but I will. What a nut job!!!! She needs to be educated beyond grade school. What the heck is wrong with this woman. However, I do have a suggestion since I do live in a rural area…we have huge fences for our deer so they don’t cross the street, highways etc. But really lady what are you smoking or what are you on? I can’t believe that you are really that stupid. But what I can believe is the fact that no one is going to listen to her complaints, they’ll see her as I see her but only have the courage to say it…you lady need some professional help!!!! The deer are much smarter than you. And insofar as the commentators on this show are concerned you should have spoken up and not let her ramble on and let hr think that you really cared. Otherwise maybe you should look for another line of work as well. You’re just as bad as she is…whew, what a bunch of yutzes!
OMG!! This woman is hilarious!!! This had to be a setup by the station. No one is that dumb!!!
Debbie: Believe it or not there are people that dumb. You would be amazed at what I heard, learned and experienced while on the police force. I couldn’t believe my ears half the time….and trust me the people that said these they weren’t drinking or on any drugs. That’s exactly how they thought about things. Oh sure my comrades and I got a chuckle out of it, but it never went on the air. I’m dubious hat the commentators on the show set this up. It was a talk show on the radio, and trust me, I’ve heard some wild ones even on the talk shows, and thought, oh this can’t be for real. When God made the mold, I hope he threw the rest of the mold out. People are unbelievable sometimes in their thinking. Might have fallen on their head sometime in their life.
i just dont see someone being that ni-eve does she really think deer can read? laffin my big boo-tay oooooooooooooffff!!!
Southerners have been laughing at dumb yankees for decades!! This nasal-voiced woman is typical! It would’ve been a mercy for the announcer to have gently explained the situation to her.
With all the people moving from place ot place, who knows where she was from? The funny farm,maybe?
I think we should just tell the deer that they need to use intersections like everyone else, if not, they will be ticket with jaywalking. Or no, we should require them to take defensive prancing. Yep, that’s the answer.
She also made another call talking about how important it is for Obama to be re elected
im not surprised, mr. vetter..who ever heard of a deer not being able to read..his parents must have been so poor not to be able to get him schooling..GOT CHA’, HAHAHAHAHAHA ROFLMBBOOOOOOOOO!!!
You silly people… Of course the deer can’t read the signs. That’s why they put the big picture of the deer right there on the middle of it. Golly-Gee, Gosh & Darn it! This woman really has a point! ;-D
OK, I’ve now picked myself back up from the floor. As Bugs might say… What a Maroon!
Liz: Kudos to you for your informative response to Mary Bare. I’m so proud of you for your explanation and research.
now just hold on, i dont know what u are referring or getting on my back for, but i agree with liz..i didnt say anything as to what u are implying..i was making light of the woman who called into the station..she was saying they ought to move the signs, just like the deer could read the signs..why is everyone harrassing me? i give up..im damned everytime i post something..im just a plain country girl and i have a lot of friends who like my sense of humor and i wont apologize for saying d___..
There’s no way someone can be that stupid. No way. Uh uh. Nope. This has to be a crank call.
Okay Mary Bare I’ll back you up a bit on this. Liz did some research (as I often do on various subjects) and although you may have taken this personally, it was to be informative to all of us that didn’t get the jist of this crazy person that called into the radio station. I’m dubious that Liz was trying to upset you or hurt your feelings, and sometimes (even I do this),put foot in mouth. What my brain thinks is funny comes out of my mouth as the wrong thing to say. Please don’t take any offense on Liz’s behalf or mine. We’re both just trying to clarify things and people come back at us as they have to you. But you have to know how to respond to them without getting your blood pressure up. For example….To David the poster above….the word is MORON, NOT A MAROON. A MAROON COULD BE A COOKIE. YOU MISSPELLED MORON. Now Mary Bare that is just one example of how we read into things written on here.
And for the record, I believe that we are BEATING THIS EDITORIAL TO DEATH LIKE A DEAD HORSE. Let’s all move on to another topic, we all got it, the lady that called into the radio station was a real fruit cake, end of story.
Feel better now Mary Bare? Do you understand what I’m trying to say here, everyone has a right to their opinions, comments etc. We can’t get overly sensitive about this. I write for the newspaper here at times and you should see some of the “nasty comments” I get back. But I over the years have learned to respond and I would say (especially when I writing about the crimes taking place) that 99% of the time I have a way of shutting up some posters of their remarks to me. Just let some of these comments be like a water running off a ducks back, we’re not trying to attack anyone here, just trying to enlighten people on how some people think and operate. Have a great day, feel better, don’t worry be happy!!!
One last thing: A maroon is not a cookie. It’s a color, or one of five people in the band Maron 5. A macaroon is a cookie.
NOW the horse is dead.
Tom Schultz: You are absolutely right in your comment to me. I know a maroon isn’t a cookie, as mentioned to Mary Bare, the brain was thinking something funny/different, and out of the mouth came the wrong answer. I apologize for my negligence in not re-reading what I wrote, having a bit of excruciating pain today and you are so right in what you wrote Tom. Thank you for clarifying my mistake. My apologies to David as well for giving the wrong information. Not thinking clearly today. I appreciate you correcting me Tom, I knew what I meant, it just came out wrong. Good job for catching my error.
Have a great day!
A ‘Maroon’ is a joke from the old ‘Bugs Bunny’ cartoons from the 50′s & 60′s. As kids we knew it meant ‘moron’ . trouble I have learned that “Moron” usually means ‘More-on’ the ball than others.
Well at least we learned and have been educated in many ways about this “Deer Crossing Sign.” We now know what a Maroon, Moron, and Macaroon means. Now maybe we can leave this particular e-mail go. GEEZ!!!!!
Her three car accidents are Mother Nature’s efforts to clean up the gene pool.
I got a chuckle from your remark, Mary, but please define WHO’S gene pool, the poor deer, or the dumb woman??? I’m guessing it’s the woman – hoping, actually!!
Glad you enjoyed. Definitely the woman. Isn’t it frightening that people like this actually reproduce?
Mary, you are sooooooo right! I feel bad for the 3 deer that she killed, since she didn’t have the sense to slow down in those areas and actually LOOK for deer who might be nearby. I hope that they died instantly, and didn’t have to suffer because of her total ignorance.
Mother Nature missed?? It’s not nice to fool with Mother nature@@@
Maybe she just needs to learn to read roadsigns, like she expects the deer to. It ain’t like we’re talking rocket science here.
Yes we are talking ‘common sense’ something that people nowadays do not have without their computer to think for them.
Hi Randy G,
At least give Mother Nature credit for trying!
Maybe it does come down to survival of the fittest as the appallingly stupid get themselves killed off cuz they can’t comprehend roadsigns!
