Only in Idaho

a 5x5 bull elk strapped to the top of a Dodge Omni car

A good friend (and psuedo brother-in-law) took this picture near Riggins, Idaho a few days ago.

I think it leaves us all thinking the same thing: why doesn't that Omni have a right side-view mirror? Good question, my friends, good question.

  1. Wow, that’s an awesome picture. I’m not sure what’s more impressive, the deer itself, or the fact this car can actually drive with it strapped on top.

  2. Man, you must have better eyes than I do (and I even had LASIK).

    So tell me…where is this deer of which you speak? All I see is an elk. ;)

    But yes, quite impressive that the Omni can (arguably) handle it. And by the by, did you notice that the elk is sticking its tongue out (presumably at any who would dare to pass the overwhelmed Omni)?

  3. Ya, I think they are from Montana (see license plate on car). No one from Idaho would do that. :]

  4. Yeah, I saw the license plate and couldn’t tell which state it was.

    And I think you’re right, Montana it is.

  10. “She shouldn’t have pushed me; she had it coming”, thought Herb the elk as he nervously glanced in his rear-view mirror, scouting for a place to bury his newly murdered wife.
