The Lyrics

My first parody in awhile. And if it's funny enough, more to come. Probably the last bastion of Christmas carol spoofs, unless I missed one during the archive seach.
I ran my car into a reindeer
'Twas Dasher, I believe
He layeth still on the pavement
As Santa started to grieve
My Taurus was a total wreck
And I had developed whiplash
But ev'ryone cried for the one
The reindeer involved in the crash.

The ambulance came like a flash
To carry Dasher to sick bay
While I sat still behind the wheel
I had some bad luck today
The younger ones, they threw some rocks
At my damaged, stalled vehicle
And blood was dripping from my neck
And man, it started to flow.

My Triple-A membership did lapse
'Twas wasn't a smart thing to do
My wife must be worried sick for me
'Cause my cellphone's broken in two
This Christmas blows, just like the snows
Hypothermia's what I fear
Just 'cause Santa's sleigh cut me off
I ran over his stupid reindeer

And by the time the help arrives
Finds me frozen stiff in the woods
I'll probably won't be on the news
As they update on poor Dasher's hooves
I lay on the hospital bed
And if I, pray tell, do not die
I'll flaten the other 7 deer
And turn them to venison pie.
My apologies to PETA supporters and Ford dealers everywhere.

Great job! Funny, but not funny at the same time. (Gave ya 5's anyway). There is a serious deer problem in many parts of the country and if the governments, citizens, hunters, and animal rights activists don't start collaborating soon we're ALL gonna have reindeer for dinner (and AAA will go bankrupt).

The deer population is getting so bad here in Indiana, our Governors have declared open hunting season. They believe the excess deer is destroying some vegetation in the State Parks. It's a lose-lose situation.:(

Funny, and more creative than Bob Rivers' "I Came Upon a Roadkill Deer".

555 from me - great job, Jonathan!

And now for my own large-animal-on-the-road-story.....seems as good a place as any to tell it....

A few years ago, my wife and I were driving around midnight along New Hampshire's Route 115 in the White Mountains region. Up ahead, I saw the rump of a large beast in the breakdown lane. I thought to myself, "Gee, what's a horse doing out this late at night on a rural highway like this?" Then as our vehicle closed the distance, the beast turned to its left and started trotting out into the road directly ahead of us. It was a full-grown moose. I screamed, "AHHH, IT'S A MOOSE!!!", my wife woke up startled and saw the hairy flanks we were speeding towards, and I swerved the car quickly to the left (no other traffic at that moment, thank goodness) and missed Bullwinkle by what looked like only three or four feet. I pulled off the road further down the highway and stopped the car, and we just sat there until my terror subsided enough for me to resume driving. Moral of the story.......BRAKE FOR MOOSE OR DEER OR FOR ANYTHING UP AHEAD THAT EVEN REMOTELY RESEMBLES MOOSE OR DEER.

That was a good story, Johnny D., and I'm glad everyone is okay. I almost ran into a deer while I was driving in the boonies where my dad then lived at. It is scary, but it would be even scarier if I had hit the deer. My sister also ran into a deer, damaging her vehicle. She wasn't seriously injured, but her car was totaled. All she cared about was whether the deer was okay! :) Thanks for all the votes and comments, everyone.;D
