London Dude Walks Into Pubs With His Pet Reindeer
"A London man who attracted attention for Christmas shopping with an 8-year-old reindeer in tow said he raised the animal from a baby.
Gordon Elliott said he has raised Dobbey the reindeer since the animal was unable to feed from its mother as a baby and the animal has since accompanied him on buses, trains and trips to his favorite pub."
If this crazy Brit walks all over town with a reindeer in tow, it`s incumbent upon him to dress up like Jolly Old Saint Nick. Elliot needs to take a pooper scooper with him, nobody likes stepping on reindeer poop.
The English aren`t as uptight as Americans, if some dude in America got on a bus with a reindeer the passengers would have a cow and the health authorities would be on him like white on rice.
Elliot is performing a community service by walking into bars with his reindeer. Some of the bar flies will see the reindeer and assume they`re hallucinating and hopefully they will decide they`ve had enough to drink and drag their drunk butts home.
Merry Christmas to Elliot, the reindeer, and all my readers.
