Moose Count

Bob O'Bobston

The UN-sponsored International
Moose Census got off to a
flying start today with hopes for an increase
in the worldwide moose population
compared to last year's disapointing
figures. Among the traditional early
reporters were Egypt, returning g-
ures of six moose, a twenty percent
increase on 2011's figures of five gures, and
Uruguay whose moose population re-
mains stable at eleven.
According to Robbie McRobson,
head of the UN Moose Preserva-
tion Council, worldwide moose num-
bers are expected to grow markedly
on last year due to the traditional
moose strongholds of Canada and the
United States, with the larger de-
veloping moose ecologies also poised
to make gains. The largest percent-
agege increase in moose will likely
come from China'', says McRobson,
The Chinese government has invested
heavily in moose infrastructure over
the past decade, and their committ-
ment to macrofauna is beginning to
pay dividends''. Since 2004 China has
expanded moose pasture from 1.5%
of arable land to nearly 3.648% and
moose numbers are expected to rise
to 60,000 making China a net moose
exporter for the rst time. This is
good news for neighbouring Mongo-
lia, a barren moose-wasteland whose
inhabitents nonetheless have an insa-
tiable desire for the creatures. The in-
crease in Beijing-Ulanbataar trade is
anticipated to relieve pressure on the
relatively strained Russian suppliers,
but increase Mongolia's imbalance of
trade with its larger neighbour.
Historically the only competitor
to China in the far eastern moose
markets has been Singapore but the
tiny island nation is set to report a
net loss, expecting a decrease of more
than ve percent on last year's 50,000
moose counted. The head of Singa-
pore's Agency for Agriculture, Jing-
Feng Lau, explained to an incredu-
lous Singaporean parliament yester-
day that bad weather had contributed
to this season's poor showing, most
notably when a cargo of 150 moose
were swept out into the Indian ocean
in a monsoon.
Yet again the global demand for
moose will be met largely by the
US and Canada. The recession-hit
States is taking comfort in its moose
growth gures with gross production
expected to break 700,000 and net ex-
ports to grow by 2%. The worldwide
dominance of Canada shows no signs
of abating though with this year's
moose population expected to match
last year's record gures of one hun-
dred million billion.
Europe's rise as an international
moose power will slow slightly this
year as a response to the European
Union's move towards standardising
the European moose. Stringent qual-
ity controls are holding back the de-
velopment of the eastern european
populations compared to last year
when they contributed signi cantly
to europe's strong growth gures.
Norway, which is not an EU member
but has observer status, strengthed
in numbers relative to the Euro area
with numbers of Norweigian moose,
known locally as elk'' expected to rise
for the tenth consecutive year, partic-
ularly thanks to a strong showing in
the last quarter.
As moose season reaches its close,
researchers world wide are turning to
science in an attempt to boost next
year's gures. NASA stunned the
scienti c community today with the
announcment of their discovery that
the moon is signi cantly smaller than
previously believed. This conclusion,
which is the conclusion of a ten-
year collaborative project, will have
profound implications for the moose
community as the gravitational eld
is now known to be of the right
strength to support moose in orbit.
According to John Johnson, head
of the NASA Moon Sizing Experi-
ment the rst delivery of moose into
low moon orbit could be achieved as
early as the third quarter of next year.
The technology to nurture moose in
space is available now'', he said, ''all
that is needed is political will''.

Granny wins
World Wrestling

Records were smashed in
Nicaragua's World Wrestling Cham-
pionship last night as 78-year-old
Maud Johnson, grandmother of ve,
became the rst woman for fty-six
years, and the oldest competitor ever,
to claim the gold medal. She walked
away with her million dollar share of
the prize money, runner up Tommy
Thompson from Nigeria taking half a
million, and third place New Zealan-
der John Smith receiving a warm
handshake from the umpire.
Having started the tournament a
rank outsider she began to impress
in her second match when she took
US number three Ron Ronson by sur-
prise and subdued him in twenty sec-
onds with her unique move that has
been dubbed "Maud's Death Grip".
The injection of a new wrestling style
into the tournament was welcomed
by spectators and Johnson's pre- and
post-match breakdances have proved
entertaining to fans. However, she
was still not expected to win in
round three last Wednesday, facing
o against title-holder Paulo "Spine-
Snapper" Lutti, of Vatican City. Un-
derdog Johnson was soon showing her
worth with stamina and agility easily
matching last year's winner. Lutti's
experience paid o initially as he took
the rst two rounds, but as John-
son became more con dent her su-
perior strength came to the fore and
she clawed back two rounds to take
the contest into a decider. By this
time Lutti's body language indicated
that he already felt overawed by the
pretender to his crown, and the new-
comer took advantage of this to en-
gage a mutual headlock which she
held for three hours until the Vat-
ican man retired from exhaustion.
The next seven matches were barely
a contest as the news of Johnson's
supremacy overawed all her oppo-
nents who became too indimidated to
ght properly.
Nigerian Tommy Thompson is
also a relative newcomer to the
wrestling scene, but with his 210lb
frame he was expected to fare well
against Johnson who weighs in at
only 90lb. However Johnson's lithe
and slender, some would say scrawny,
gure belies her agility and strength
which she demonstrated by holding
Thompson above her head several
times during the bout and throwing
him into the crowd once. With the
scores tied at 2-2 time ran out and the
contest went to a panel of judges to be
assessed. They awarded Thompson a
C grade whilst Johnson received an
A, becoming the rst grandmother to
ever win the title.
The new champion explained her
success as the result of a strict train-
ing regimen instituted by her coach
and grandson ve-year-old Sammy
Johnson. "I've been drinking ten
raw eggs for breakfast every morning,
sprinting fty miles a day and carry-
ing my daughter's car to the end of
the road and back whenever I felt my
arthritis was OK" she said. Sammy
added "I always knew she could do
it. She's my grandma.". The young-
ster is also her manager and has re-
portedly arranged sponsorship deals
which will dwarf her one million dol-
lar prize fund. Her new contract with
headband designer Nike alone is set
to earn her fourteen billion dollars
over the next year. She will also be
promoting Tupperware, Halliburton,
the Republic of Macedonia, and Gala
Bingo. Her continued participation in
the sport is not assured as she wants
to spend more time on her bungee-
jumping business, and knitting. Ev-
eryone here at the World Champi-
onships, however, hopes for her re-
