Legal?

Uh, Senator, do you have a tag for that deer?

Sen. Illegible

Who is the guy on the left? Is that Burton Wheeler?

Yikes!

I think he would have preferred a box of cigars instead.

Re: Working Horn

... but typically of politicians, got it wrong.

Antlers aren't horns!

Truman

This unfortunate creature was subsequently delivered to the office of Senator Harry Truman, hence his motto: "The Buck Stops Here".

Here's a question

To what are the antlers tied? The steering wheel?

Working Horn

The Senator took the "having a working horn" requirement rather literally.

It's been going on for years!

Politicians getting every last buck from the taxpayers.

Fender base

Ah, for the days when cars had fenders, and you could tie deer to them!

Can't wait

I can't wait to find out the explanation for this photo! I can tell you that the car underneath the poor, unfortunate buck is a 1936 Ford Tudor sedan.

I'll give you ten reasons

New safety feature demonstrated.

While the senate thought that adorning cars with dead animals an effective warning against animal / vehicular collisions. This later proved to be ineffective
