An article in today's newspaper pointed out that apparently (and surprisingly) Utah (the state of) is suffering from an overabundance of moose.
Silly me: I pictured the entire state as a kind of desert with a few amazing rock formation parks called Bryce and Zion - with surely nothing much 'extra' to trade. But apparently, faced with a sudden plethora of moose, Utah opted to put out the word about a possible trade opportunity involving said largess.
Myself, I have 10 chickens up for grabs.
Actually, they live nextdoor.
Specifically, we're talkin' ALL ROOSTERS: a fact that my urban-transplant neighbor only discovered when, after a year of incessant crowing, eggs were NOT forthcoming.
Utah, MY offer is 'catch 'n carry'. Might I presume the same could be said of your Utah Moose Exchange Program?
Or, given their size, is moose catchin' and carryin' INCLUDED in the trade arrangement?
Nonetheless - I have 10 healthy non-hens to offer up. The potential for a positive return on THIS exchange ONLY requires an addition 10 hens on Utah's part, and away you go.
What do I want with a moose, might you ask??
Well, DUH - I'll be the ONLY one in my rural community to boast of a moose in The Back 40. Because there are NO mooses anywhere near where I live!
And, I'm chargin' admission....
So this idea should offer inspiration to ALL rural inhabitants: whether you harbor 'pests' or suddenly-unwanted domestics, there is ALWAYS a healthy trade opportunity on the horizon.
Myself, I think 10 chickens for 1 moose is MORE THAN FAIR...
