    To Stop Moose and Squirrel


    Does anybody know what the following mean?
    1) To stop moose and squirrel
    (Does it mean to stop whining?)
    2) A flight of poetic fancy
    (To dream about something unrealistic).

    Are these considered slangs?

    Thank you.

    Re: To Stop Moose and Squirrel

    1. It's a reference to

    The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    In the show the "bad guys" were pseudo-Russian secret agents whose plans were stopped by the moose and squirrel.

    The general meaning would be to finally defeat your nemesis.

    2. Yes. "Flight of fancy" is the usual phrase.
