the una-bunyan?

From the AP..., the sad story of Paul Bunyan getting careless with his ax or losing his temper.

Babe the Blue Ox has lost his head. Ax-wielding Paul Bunyan is not a suspect. The head fell off the 35-foot-tall statue of giant lumberjack Bunyan's mythical sidekick Tuesday, landing snout down on the pavement in the northern California town of Klamath.

Jeff LaForest, manager of the gift shop where the statue stands, says water was seeping inside the statue. That weakened the wood inside the structure and caused the collapse.

My second-oldest son read Paul Bunyan this summer-- and thought it was hilarious. Just create a huge character and set him lose in the world-- and hijinks are sure to ensue!
