Listen, strange people lying in ponds distributing deer is no basis for a system of government! Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some aquatic ungulate ceremony!

Fawn rescued by boy from flood waters, via Reddit.

UPDATE: Actual story here.



  1. Come ‘n see th’ violence inherent in deer system!! X-D

  2. NTMTOM, what’s it like to live in your world? 😉

  3. ;-; Ahh, what a wonderful person for saving this little baby!

  4. Help! Help! I’m being oppressed!

  5. what a beautiful picture!! I love when people go all out to save a sweet animal ❤
    it also makes me feel all fuzzy inside that I'm not the only one who knows and loves Monty Python !!!

  6. So where’s Marlin?

  7. that is so sweet!

  8. 😀

  9. Martha in Washington says:

    On second thought, we don’t want to go there. ‘Tis a silly place!

  10. Bloody peasant!

  11. As long as he does think the deer is “Thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch” the deer should be ok ..

  12. .. I thinks it’s a silly place ..

  13. Kellygirl says:

    Don’t mean to be Debbie Downer, and I love Monty Python as much as the next guy, but perhaps this amazing photo deserves a more serious treatment than a punchline?

  14. It’s only a model . . .

  15. Omigod!! Cuteness and Monty Python in one post!!!! Thank you, I already knew you were my kind of people 🙂

  16. Well played that woman………………

  17. Umm . . . Carol? That ‘woman’ would like a word with you.

    King Arthur: Old woman.

    Dennis: Man.

    King Arthur: Man, sorry. What knight lives in that castle over there?

    Dennis: I’m 37.

    King Arthur: What?

    Dennis: I’m 37. I’m not old.

    King Arthur: Well I can’t just call you “man”.

    Dennis: Well you could say “Dennis”.

    King Arthur: I didn’t know you were called Dennis.

    Dennis: Well you didn’t bother to find out did you?

    King Arthur: I did say sorry about the “old woman”, but from behind you looked…

    Dennis: What I object to is you automatically treat me like an inferior.

    King Arthur: Well I am king.

    Dennis: Oh, king eh? Very nice. And how’d you get that, eh? By exploiting the workers. By hanging on to outdated imperialist dogma which perpetuates the economic and social differences in our society.

  18. King Arthur’s stag party got a little wild after Gawain broke out the mead.

  19. Oh, what a giveaway! Did you hear that? Did you hear that, eh? That’s what I’m on about! Did you see him repressing me? You saw him, Didn’t you?

  20. Brother Maynard: Armaments, chapter two, verses nine through twenty-one.

    Cleric: [reading] And Saint Attila raised the hand grenade up on high, saying, “O Lord, bless this thy hand grenade, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy.” And the Lord did grin. And the people did feast upon the lambs and sloths, and carp and anchovies, and orangutans and breakfast cereals, and fruit-bats and large chu…

    Brother Maynard: Skip a bit, Brother…

    Cleric: And the Lord spake, saying, “First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it.

  21. Shh!

  22. “One . . . two . . . FIVE!”

  23. That’s a fair point. I tend to lock on to the oddball aspects of a photo out of habit. I found the source story, which actually is rather heartwarming, and added a link to the post.

  26. Three, sir!

  27. Sorry, Saffron always seems like a feminine flavouring to me, Fred? Now Fred I probably would have said Well done that man….. Hmm, ‘well done that Saffron’ doesn’t have quite what i was going for. Saffron? Would you like to weigh in here please?

  28. This is Cute Overload. I come here to get away from ‘serious’ Ms. Downer, otherwise we’d all be visiting Seriously Depressing Overload, this is an uplifting photo in all senses of the term, especially for the fawn…………

  29. Wonderful story! Thanks for the link! 🙂

  30. I iz a woman. 🙂

    Any posts with Monty Python and the Holy Grail are automatic WINS in my book. 😀
    …and if they don’t I will turn everyone into a Newt…


  31. I just snorted diet coke all over my ipad.

  32. You’d better believe it! She turned me into a newt!

    …I got better.

  33. That link makes it even cuter. Def deserves that rescute tag. Thanks!!!

  34. Kellygirl says:

    Thanks NTMTOM, I’ve always loved you! 🙂

  35. We’re fawns of the Round Table, we scamper when’er we’re able. We do routines and chorus scenes with hoofwork impeccable. We dine well here in Camelot, we eat ham and jam and Spam a lot.

  36. You know that void the warranty .. right ?
