Saskatchewan — Mac the Moose, the Moose Jaw icon recently usurped of its title of “world’s tallest moose” by a silver sculpture in Norway, has been given the opportunity to break a whole new record, thanks to a generous donation from Moosehead Breweries.
Moosehead, the New Brunswick-based beer company, announced last week that they had reached out to Moose Jaw to provide a $25,000 donation in order to help Mac become “anatomically correct.”
“We didn’t want to risk raising him up any higher,” said Moose Jaw Mayor Fraser Tolmie. “So we think that this addition will be an excellent way of extending the erection without compromising Mac’s basic structure.”
Tolmie told The Manatee that, thanks to the extra cash, they will be able to create a “really excellent” addition to Mac — one equipped with a timed mist spray to relieve tourists during the hot summer days.
Johnson Weiner, the Moosehead representative responsible for the donation, said that when he first proposed the idea to his board, they thought he was “nuts.”
“That was, until I told them that after this, Dennis Oland would no longer be the biggest dick to be associated with Moosehead,” Weiner recalled.
