is FUCKING WEIRD.
please stop it.
It's strikes me as a really odd thing to start enjoying but once it's an actual thing you're good at I can vaguely see the appeal.
Wouldn't get me anywhere near it though.
I'm not sure I want to either.
some DiSers do have girlfriends.
She's a recent acquisition, I've left it to late to really capitalise on that excellent in-joke :(
That's terrible. Everyone stop doing that immediately.
with loads of stuffed badgers, rats, hedgehogs, foxes etc. stuffed and dressed up to look like they were playing cricket.
i think i've been there
Maybe further north though.
did go to this place (not sure if 'museum' is the right word) in dorset where the owner had stuffed his beloved pet dog and put it at the top of a long flight of stairs so anyone vaguely surprised by the sight ran the risk of serious injury, which is nice
With someone from this very site!
On Westgate (opposite the castle)!?
They've gotten rid of it now, probably cos it was so fucking weird.
Besides, that's how she likes to refer to it.
if not they really missed a trick
But i hate those wacky twats who have it in their houses.
Surely if you knew someone who started keeping dead animals in their house you'd encourage them to go and see their GP?
It looks pretty good in her flat.
It's a fascinating if frustrating hobby.
Skinned a mouse this morning.
My old hairdresser had a stuffed fox that *slept* curled up in a chair in the reception area. On my first visit I thought it was a cat and "petted it" and had a bit of a screaming fit and they had to give me brandy. Fucking shoreditch wanks.
it just wound up looking like one of those old lady hats.
I did see a photo of a stuffed frog riding a stuffed squirrel as if it was a horse. That was quite funny. Couldn't have it in my home though.
Reminds me of that video of a baby monkey ring backwards on a pig. Not too sure why, since they weren't stuffed. Hmm.
Oh it's time for coffee.
I STUFF YA M...forget it.
It's just a small shop, filled with stuffed animals.
But there's two things I enjoy the most about it
1) The windows have protective grates across them, presumably to protect the valuable cargo inside
2) The only thing in there that isn't a stuffed animal is a desk with a computer, and a man behind it, surveying his taxidermy domain
That was the centre piece
therefore, functionally useless.
Into the burny thing with it.
