[agrah]: Who enters its nose and why does he enter?What does he do in its nose?

It's a fly. You understand, this is the head of a dead animal, now displayed as a trophy. Usually it would be preserved by chemicals to prevent the flesh from decaying. However the presence of the fly suggests that maybe the chemical preservation process (taxidermy) was imperfect, and the fly is attracted to the smell of rotting flesh.

Hey, don't look at me that way. You asked. Paul Wheaton is the sicko who came up with this image.

[agrah]: What happened to its' eye?

It fell out. Again, this is decaying flesh.

[agrah]: Does it have two separate nose?

One big nose with two nostrils.

[agrah]: Is hits face blocked in some wooden frame?

The head has been mounted on a wooden board.

[agrah]: His ears not symmetric to each other?

If you experiment a bit with a mirror, you can verify that most human faces aren't perfectly symmetric either.

[agrah]: How many hair does it have?

None of his own. He's wearing a wig.

[agrah]: What is the significance of its horns?

Um... he's male, and he's a moose. Probably they tell you something about how old he was when he died, too.

[agrah]: WHAT IS HIS NAME?

We never decided. Personally I always liked "Bruce the Moose".

Why you are asking so many questions about him? Does he resemble you?

Yep, that's him. His location and activities are highly classified.

The Moose, by nature of his classified position, gets special dispensation.

I believe The Moose has previously explained that "The" is short for "Theodore".

and if Che is a proper name in some languages, why shouldn't "The" be a proper name in Moose?

I don't buy it - moose are notorious for being unable to pronounce "th" correctly, no matter how much they practice.

The "annoying insect" represents certain posters who occasionally visit the saloon. They leave insect droppings in various forums -- for example, "urgent" demands for others do their homework.

re: the insect flying around

Actually, its true history is that, it represents Java Garbage Collection. Every few moments, it comes in to clean up the dirt inside the nose.

Thats not true ! If you notice carefully the insect exits the left nostril and enters the right nostril again. So there is no place where the garbage can be disposed of. My theory is that there is a family of insects living inside the nose and that moma insect wants to do some shopping every now and then. When she realises that the shopping mall is too far away she returns back into the nose and this process resets her 15 second memory.

TADAA !

When I look at the moose, I am reminded of the advert for some kind of sweet (wine gums?) where a guy says (in a thick Scottish accent) "There's a moose loose aboot this hoose!".
