I read the thread header and thought it was about a UK pub!

"I'm off luv t' have a few down at the Drunken Elk with Drapes."

Has a nice ring to it.

Do we have a "common mistake" page? The BBC`s article confuses the Elk with the Elg. Quite simply, the Scandinavian Elg is the North American Moose (albeit a little smaller); the Scandinavian Hjort is the North American Elk (albeit a little smaller). The poor girl in the apple tree is an Elg/Moose. Do not try to prove me wrong with Wikpedia, because I checked and they have it wrong too.
