This sign was not what I thought it was
I saw this sign in the small town where I was living in the US. It made me really laugh. I was wondering what kind of contest would this be? Would people bring their stuffed moose and then lip sync songs, using the moose as a puppet? (I think these thoughts make me either extremely imaginative or just plain dumb).
I was very stuck on the concept of the moose being an actual animal. I finally searched this online and found out that this sign is for an event sponsored by the Moose Lodge, which is a fraternal service organization. Apparently the Moose Idol contest was a fundraiser and I doubt that there was any taxidermy entered. The sign made so much more sense after I looked this up!
