"These wiley critters love the full moon, and that’s when you’re most likely to see them. You probably won’t get near one though, unless you can entice it with some whiskey. Jackalopes are among the most dangerous of the wildlife in our ecosystem. Locals will recommend you wear stovepipes on your legs in jackalope country, otherwise you may be gored by their razor-sharp antlers."

    The Virginia “Blue Ridge” Jakalope of the Shenandoah Valley are much more vicious & aggressive, they’ve been known to ravage a vegetable patch so completely that the next day you might suspect a drunk husband drove his 4 × 4 through it the night before… that’s one of the surest signs of a jackalope attack. They’re bigger here too they often leave a mark on both the side of your trailer & your truck when they pass between them in the night, they are very fond of the low land trailer parks & catfish holes.

      BTW this is not satire, while it mocks the whiskey soused drunk, & jibes at tender footed neophytes it’s not satire because it has no point to drive home, no hard hitting obvious injustice is being addressed, no power is being spoken to with mocking respect. This is arguably farce as it tries to take on the voice of a travel book, it could be argued as mockery which only becomes satire when it has a strong usually socio-political point. The word satire has been reduced to meaning anything that makes fun of something, that’s a poor use for such a powerful & historically essential art.

        It’s called a satirical site by most people that I know indeed.

          It’s a shame the way that’s happened, lot’s of things which are just mean or a fun little farce are now mistaken for satire, much the same way the word irony is constantly misused.

            Yea, but that’s how it is on the internet. I used to read a lot of stories in literature that were correctly classified as satire, but I guess that this new way on the internet is the common, though not technically correct, use of the word now. I never did like how the word irony is frequently misused today too.
