If You Give a Moose a Cruller

Sometimes, a story comes across your desk that just gives you a bit of (strange) inspiration.

Sadly, this moose was sick and didn't survive. But hopefully my version of a kid's favourite story will live forever in our plaid flannel hearts.

If you give a moose a cruller, he's probably going to ask for a double double.

After that, he'll feel guilty and want to have a Body Break.

Then he'll hear the Hockey Night in Canada song and want to watch the game.

After seeing the ice, he'll feel a little cold and ask for his toque

And he'll ask you to read him his favourite Brady Brady book.

He'll start to get sleepy and ask if he can retreat to his igloo bedroom

He'll get cozy under the blankets, look out the window and see a Newfie, playing the fiddle

Which will make him want to sing a song!
Of course, he knows all the actions to Skinamarinkidinkydink.

When he's done that, he'll probably be thirsty and ask for a double double

And chances are, if he asks for a double double, he's going to want a cruller to go with it.

Much love to Laura Numeroff for writing the original If You Give a Mouse a Cookie book as well as the subsequent If You Give a Moose a Muffin book which was the inspiration for my Canadian version.

And even more love to Steve Bentley, Stephen Vaz, Robb Farago, Dana B, Wes Prankard, Amanda Stratton, Beck and Craig Smith for sharing their ideas of the quintessential "Canadian" doughnut. Find these great people on twitter!
