Actually, when slow cooked, Jackelope can be quite tender. Tastes like chicken.

I got a flat tire from hitting one once. Darned antlers.

UltArc- I watched the video. He got the wheel locked, then took the key out of his pocket, put it in and unlocked the wheel.

Taking the key out and putting it back in my pocket isn't part of my EOC procedure- but yes, I can see how it being in my pocket would make for horrible reaction times while driving.

Being in Scotland I'd probably go "what the *goodness* is that" whilst either trying to run it over if it looks dangerous, or avoiding running it over if it looks cute.

Depending on size of course.

If I was a local Scot rather than English I'd probably kill it and deep fry it.

Nowadays due to the widespread of electronic immobilizers as a passive anti-theft feature, steering locks integrated to the ignition is getting less usual.
