If you have a stuffed deer that you want to get rid of, how should you go about doing this? Not, apparently, by sticking it in a sidewalk garbage can, as one NY resident recently did.

I came across this ad in Boys' Life - Oct 1935
. Then I realized that Paul had already posted a version of the ad two years ago
. But I decided to post this version anyway, since it shows the Taxidermied Frog Orchestra. I wonder how many kids actually went ahead and made one of these.
There is a mixed message in this piece of taxidermy by Rick Nadeau. It could be a signal for the creation of a Rodent Army to fight against evil. It could be a reaction to the outrage from the recent raccoon roadkill post.
Rick also has versions with ammo belts.
Here's the link to Rick's Website:
It could also serve well in an anti-tobacco campaign.
Just remember -- When Guns are Outlawed, Only Squirrels Will Have Guns!!
The other night I watched an old Hollywood western, in which one of the characters wore a skunk hat. Now I want one, preferably with skunk head still displayed, as to the right.
You can order yours here.
$195.00, but worth every penny.
