Oh, don't worry; it's inevitable that part of this thread will end up getting flooded with bridge and water puns.
But we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

Make that a big skillet and a lot of lemons.  Mooses are big animals.  Or is that meeses?

I was assuming that the Trout genes were dominant, so the size would be small, but the horns would be a pain to deal with...

Only slightly related, in this morning's newspaper, a local campground owner is offering two connected covered bridges for $1 to the person or organization that will move them to a place of safety.

The saving of the Moose Brook bridge has been mentioned by Trains magazine's online columnist Justin Franz as an example of great collaboration in historic preservation. Read more at: http://cs.trains.com/trn/b/observation-tower/archive/2017/09/20/history-lost-history-saved.aspx

I truss that you have an angle on this subject. I'm beaming with anticipation.  8)

It keeps the forum lively. Careful though, compliments like that will cause a boil over into a steaming pile of puns. Just don't rake me over the coals for adding fuel to the fire.  :o

Warning; sometimes it does sometimes get the moderator steaming.

Hence why 2 puns per week is my limit. Don't want the mods throwing ballast at me.

If you limit to just two puns per week,
you may not be able to bridge the gap,
