cucumber time
Summer is called "cucumber time" in Norwegian news media. Nothing really interesting is reported. And so it's open for odd stories and possible hoaxes, like the "hunting bambi" story. Nick Montfort pointed me to the site of urban legends, while Denniz G. Jerz had already pointed to the site.

This is a diverting little thing to try and find out of, and I can't wait to get back from the boathouse, where I will be spending the rest of the week, get online and see if there is any news. But until then I'll be sunning, swimming, fishing, cooking, gardening, walking dogs, hiking, killing mosquitoes and gnats and in general do summer-in-Norway stuff. I'll bring a camera!
