Some of the moderators have been thinking about coming up with a name for our moose. Here's something to have some fun with.....
Sung to the tune of Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree (more or less)

******** Ode to Bruce ********
When I sing to you my Bruce, I know that you're my favorite moose.
With one glass eye and silk for hair, your hind end's gone but I don't care.
I see your face at Java Ranch and wish that you had legs to dance.
That pesky fly goes in and out your nose but you don't care since you lost your toes.
So now I sing my ode to Bruce.
The mighty moose with no caboose.
Optional second verse (still in beta testing - this verse may not be a part of the final release)
While in this life Bruce had a wife.
6 kids they had not all that bad.
They lived quite near a goose filled stream.
Their kids had fun in a living dream.
One day these geese flew over Bruce's meese.
The kids said dad this isn't fair.
Those geese get names we can't compare.
So now I sing my ode to Bruce.
The mighty moose with no caboose.

I just updated the lyrics (rel 1.1) to adapt it more closely to the Java Ranch specification.

I have to admit it makes me a little steamy eyed myself.
 
For my next feat, I will require a volunteer from the audience! Perhaps this tiny ad?
