English deer messes up badly

Headline from The Daily Mail: Oh deer! Incredible pictures after animal jumps THROUGH the windshield of a tractor trailer truck and lands in the cab.

"What's a 'windshield'?" thinks the poor ruminant, "Don't they mean 'windscreen'?

"A 'tractor trailer truck'? Is that alliteration or does it just mean 'big lorry'? 'Cab'? Is that like an official taxi, or am I thinking of a 'mini cab'?

"While I'm on the topic, does 'black cab' mean a London Taxi because they are traditionally painted black? Or does that mean a cab driver who doesn't pay tax?

"And is the driver completely drunk or something, he's on the wrong bloody side of the road! Fuck!"

Duly befuddled, at the last second, our English deer abroad decides to jump to safety on the passenger seat. Only problem is, not only do the Yanks drive on the wrong side of the road, they have the steering wheel on the wrong side of the vehicle as well, and he ends up being crushed by death behind the steering column.

What would happen if a deer met a cow?

JH, they'd nod politely at each other and then get on with the serious business of eating grass and leaves and suchlike.
