ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Stacey Ransom points us to this delightful collection of terrifically bad taxidermy!
Top right – Crack Fox!
Ahhh! That’s what I clicked through to say too!
I dunna made a tummy shame :(
Or Furry version of Tanning Mom.
I can’t stop laughing. Please help.
Sad weasel is sad
But…I don’t think weasels have webbed feet.
Why I otter…….
I was all over it until I got to “a cheetah died for this?”
Yes. Bad taxidermy is bad.
It was taxidermized in its final moments: coughing up a hairball.
Maybe it died from barfing, sneezing and farting all at the same time. I’m trying to imagine where you would find a cylinder of the right size to serve as the base frame; maybe we’re judging this too harshly, maybe its supposet to be a footstool or something.
I suppose you’d have just left that bench in unupholstered.
Including the majestic møøse
The main difference between this and “The Mystery (S)hack” is a bottle of eyeballs?
“He looks so peaceful.”
The best name that I’ve read for this is “Taxiderpy”.
They should have left the genitals on that chair-sitting fox. Or faked a set. Because with that expression and with his paws positioned like that, a be’wanged version would be totally perfect for sneaking onto a shelf or dresser of someone’s bedroom while they were sleeping.
Needs a little speech bubble as well…
“Its not gonna suck itself!”
if i didn’t fear my wife murdering me in my sleep for doing so, i would buy all of these. I love it so much.
Don’t forget the Gripsholm Lion!
“Stay outta my shed”
I really am crying tears of laughter & sadness. Seeing these… Things… Makes me feel more for the animal lives they had… I mean, of all the things to die for…
…and be *immortalized* as!
(I can’t help feeling for them, too – such a waste.)
I want to point out that Something Awful took it a step further by putting these stuffed animals into hilarious Photoshopping here: http://www.somethingawful.com/d/photoshop-phriday/bad-taxidermy-nature.php and http://www.somethingawful.com/d/photoshop-phriday/taxidermy-nightmares.php
Fox = Want!
i like to imagine that this is EXACTLY what they looked like when they were alive and moving, which was why they had to be killed, mounted, and kept forever.
This has inspired me to donate my corpse so they can make a Trollface outta me.
Is that Vince on the right corner? I know a Vulpus c***itcus when I spot one.
They should bring Mongrels back on TV soon! 2 seasons wasn’t enough.
ThinkI hear the coyote saying: “Stimpy, you eeediot!”
Also the Something Awful goons have nicknamed the fox, ‘Giggles’.
Yep, not Chuck Testa.
Not one Norman Bates reference? BB really is catering to another generation these days, isn’t it?
Sweet Jesus, these are fantastic!!
This one’s from the Museo de La Plata, where I work. It’s supposed to be a vizcacha (Lagostomus maximus), just saying in case anyone wants to google it to see what it should look like :-P
Yes, “Taxiderpy” is the best name for these. Frightening, but hilarious as hell. That fox…
