After a week watching the Disney classic, Bambi, a Wauwatosa man had enough. Gun Deer season was upon Wisconsin and this Wauwatosa man made it his quest to never watch the movie, Bambi, again.As a family tradition, dating all the way back to 2005, Bob "Mickey" Reinhardt set out for opening day. At 10:20am opening morning a medium sized doe walked out from behind the trees and WHAM, down it went. “T’was a clean breast shot, eh. Right through da left shoulder, lung and out da liver. I was up in dat tree up der hunting in da norf woods. Da important thing is now my son can see dat Bambi’s dead.”
Back home Bob hung the deer from his apple tree. Bob’s wife was less than pleased to see a deer carcass hang outside their sliding deck doors. “You’ve got to be kidding me, you have got to be kidding me,” bellowed Bob’s much more civilized wife.
Bob’s son, however, was somewhat excited. The little boy did not understand this death and kept saying Bambi was broken and would ask when Bob was going to fix Bambi or if he could put new batteries in Bambi. Sorry, this Bambi needs more than batteries. “If my son asks to watch Bambi again, I’m hangin’ a dead Thumper by his precious freakin’ feet.” It is not that Bob dislikes Bambi, it is just prior to opening day, Bambi was played 2-3 times per day for the past three weeks, obviously enough to figure out how Bambi’s mother really died.
Now Bambi is spending her final days on the chopping block at Bunzel’s Meet Market. Regardless of past experience with Bambi, it is almost assured Bob will be enjoying Bambi one last time.
