I got mine. I hit it right

I got mine. I hit it right between the deer warning devices I had on each side of my front bumper. Now I can hang out with the boys and don't have to lie about never killing a deer.

Keep building subdivisions,

Keep building subdivisions, they'll keep moving. They keep moving, we'll keep hitting them. Same goes for all of the wildlife. Don't complain about a coyote eating your poodle if you built your house on their long time range. We gotta learn to live with them, they're learning to live with us. Apparently the deer are a little slower (and bigger) than the rest.
