Buffalo news

From The Daily Mail:

A man has died after a station wagon hit a buffalo on a remote Northern Territory highway.

Police say a 54-year-old man was travelling in a car with five other people in north-eastern Arnhem Land around 5am on Sunday when it crashed into the beast.


How can you just "hit" a buffalo?

Maybe buffaloes are like trees? If they see somebody driving carelessly, they jump out in front of them to teach them a lesson?

And full marks for the photo editor, who - surprisingly for the 'Daily Fail' - didn't drag out a pic of an African Cape Buffalo or American bison.

Should have let a woman drive, since everyone knows Buffalo Gals go around the outside....

OK I'll get my coat!

Very good above,

My reading was that the man just drove at the beast thinking it would get out of his way. His mistake was thinking it was just a Bluffalo.

One for the kids!

JM, exactly. Go round the outside (baaa), don't try and drive through it, what sort of macho shit is that?
