Source | Metro.co.uk | Is this the world's largest artificial moose?
If you'd been wondering to yourself, 'is there anywhere I can go in the world to wonder around inside a giant elk, and maybe grab a bite to eat?' then you may be in luck.
Local officials in Sweden have just granted permission for the construction of a giant architectural moose, which will act as a concert hall and restaurant, entered via the moose's mouth.
The elk building will stand nearly 150ft high.
Elk/Moose terminology update: what is commonly called a moose in North America is called an elk in Europe. The fact that there is a different animal, native to North America, which the locals have decided refer to as an elk is not our fault. The animal featured in the article is the European Elk, Alces alces, or moose to North Americans. That we choose to occasionally refer to it as a moose is partly as a courtesy to our North American friends, to let them know which animal we're talking about, but mostly because 'moose' is a funnier sounding word. But if you think we're going to give up calling our elk 'elk' just because you lot went over there and started calling something that wasn't an elk an elk, well, think again. Elk elk elk.

BTW, What the heck is "cacozelia?"
It'd be cool to send home a postcard stating, "I bungee jumped from the bung-hole of a giant moose, wish you were here?"
Bunghole: The hole in a cask, keg, or barrel through which liquid is poured in or drained out. And yes, the Vulgar Slang meaning: The anus.
We eatbecause we are poor!!!!!
