Wildlife Wednesday Highlights For Jan 18 2023: Loch Ness Monster in North Carolina? Moose at Tim Hortons!

Mysterious Sea Creature Caught on Video in North Carolina... This is from a bait shop's Facebook page in North Carolina... it looks like a whale to me... or a sturgeon... or a sea serpent of old... story at (https://www.southernliving.com/mystery-sea-creature-atlantic-beach-nc-video-7092349) and video at (https://fb.watch/h-yywuvuvw/)
and here's the video embed,,,

Thanks to everyone who sent us this video! It's a Moose at the Tim Hortons on Horsman Road and you guys are right, it doesn't get more Canadian than that!
BTW, you are NOT supposed to get THIS CLOSE to a moose in the wild. From THIS ARTICLE: "... if a moose approaches you, back away. If it charges, RUN! Do not stand your ground. If possible, place a tree or other nearby object between you and the moose"

the Pineapple Thing about Swinging *PG13

Scotty note: I am not a swinger. If you are one, that's none of my business but I would argue that you should have told me about the pineapple thing before now. ( https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMY1gYFYR/ ) @lindajeanw Oops no one told me 🍍🍍🍍 #notswingers #oops #pineapple #ididntknow #fy ♬ original sound - Jazzy Fizzle Good Lord, what if I accidentally wore some pineapple trunks to the waterslides or something?!  Wait, I love pineapple on my pizza... am I already a swinger and I just didn't know it? The Swinger's Code is kind of fascinating...
