Today in The Life of Weird Homeschoolers: The children spent at least half an hour petting taxidermy victims in the feed store this morning. Nothing like getting up close and personal with an alarmingly large dead beaver! Or if you’re a certain four year old girl there’s nothing quite like forcing your mother to yell, “For the love of all that is holy stop kissing that poor fox. No we cannot buy it. No you cannot pretend it is still alive and keep it as a pet. No it cannot sleep in your bed with you. NO.”
Some people go to the zoo to learn about animals. We’re keepin’ it more classy over here.
Besides, admission to the feed store is free.
We can count this as socialization too, right? We did a lot of socializing with that stuffed beaver.
I mean really, I can’t get over how huge that thing was. I didn’t think to take pictures. I will next time my chickens run out of feed. The display was an advertisement for a local taxidermy service.
I know this is super creepy, but when my favorite cat dies I kind of want to turn him into one of those things. Put him on the mantel. That way I’ll never really have to say goodbye to him. I can’t stand the thought of never petting him again.
I wonder how much that costs. If every country boy does it to their deer’s head it surely can’t be that expensive.
Now that I have fully confirmed that my freak flag is flying high I need to get up off of my butt and go do some chores. I must resist googling pet taxidermy for now. I’ll add it to my list of things to Google right below pacific ocean whirlpools and testicle donation…
(Yes, I actually have a list of interesting topics to google when I have spare moments or insomnia.)
Oh my gosh is human taxidermy a thing? I really have to google that before I can possibly do any chores.
Holy crap. I just found this link and now I’m laughing so hard I can’t breathe. Dinner will not be on the table at 6 because I am too busy choking to death while laughing over bad taxidermy jobs.
Google image search terrible taxidermy. I dare you. Post the best/worst/most hilarious one you find in the comments!
