I recall seeing a taxidermy place in Austin that not only had Jackalopes, but also Pheasalopes and extremely large "owl" faces made from deer butts. Don't think I ever saw a Wolpertinger there, though.

...The German Wolpertinger!

Considered by many European nations as an invasive species, it had migrated to Poland in 1939, and was soon found in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, and even made inroads to eastern Russia for a time, but was successfully repelled and eventually was, through a great collaborated effort, almost driven to extinction.
Now THAT is terrifying!

Up until today it was only the thought of chupacabras that kept me up at night.

Why are his sunglasses crooked and why doesn't she have a helmet ?

Why aren't her feet touching the boards ?

Because it's AI Bollocks that's why.

She's obviously getting ready to slit his throat and take over driving cause his helmet pissed her off and can't see around it.
Total Bullocks though, no visible valve to turn on the nitrous system.

I'm an avid thrift/antique store shopper. I also love having a camera with me at all times. Which leads to the hundreds of pictures of weird crap with me at all times.

Here are a few.

Weird shit I saw from this post. My son-in-law's parents had that same bust with the green hair in their guest room upstairs. No one seemed to know where it came from my my grandson obsessed over it. He was drawn to it yet afraid of it at the same time. This went on for a couple of years. He named it Beebee.

Driving to work this morning and saw a box truck delivering "Liquid Death." The small print said "Drinking water from the Alps."

Now you young 'uns likely know all about this stuff, but it's new to me. First off, pretty weird name for something that doesn't seem to have death-defying things like alcohol, or even a surfeit of caffeine, but secondly, what's the attraction of water from the Alps? I guess there's a unique mineral content, but still, why bottle something up to ship across the ocean anyway?

I checked their website and found out the water comes from "beneath hundreds of feet of stone" with "natural minerals." So does my tap water. But the "infinitely recyclable aluminum cans" is pretty tempting.

Anyway, on with the day. I'll pass on the water, FWIW.

Above the beer cooler in the grocery store at 'Al's Oasis', Oacoma, South Dakota.

A depressing scene, at best.

Killing something, then going to such great lengths to recreate it as lifelike as possible in a display is truly surreal, and not in a good way.

I didn't actually see it but tonight the was a very weird rhythmic snuffling noise out in the garden. After fetching my flashlight I find two hedgehogs, one seemed to be panting and I suspect they both were craving whatever passes for a cigarette in hedgehog culture.

Actually what passes for a cigarette these days in our culture?
