Some people take taxidermy to an entirely new level of creepy…



Oh god, it’s Assquatch.

Um. That’s the technical name. That’s a taxidermied white-tailed deer butt, flipped over so the tail makes the beard. There are people who work very hard to shave and shape the hair to make a nose.

The mouth is…well, it’s exactly what you think it probably is. Putting teeth in them and making it look like lips is the true test of the assquatch artist.

I wish like hell I was making this up, but I’m not.


But seriously though - I’d pee my pants if I spotted something that looked like that watching me from the bushes.

The skull of the Chinese Water Deer is one of the most iconic skulls out there. 

Like many small Asian deer species, it does not have antlers. Instead the males fight each other with their extremely sharp tusks, slashing at rivals with downward head swings. 

When not actively shanking others, the tusks can be folded back slightly., so they don’t interfere with eating.

Anonymous asked: You have a lovely blog!


One silly blogger was

Told by a ‘nonny that

They liked her stuff.

She was concerned about 

Getting a swelled head and


feared it would pop.

So, this has been sitting in my inbox for a while, and I want to apologize for not responding to it for months.

I also want to take this opportunity to reemphasize that I’m terrible at replying to messages, and the amount of time between the message and my response (or total lack thereof) is any sort of indicator of what I think of you or your message. 9 times out of 10 it’s because I want to take some time to give a proper reply, but I really don’t have the time to do that because I should have been doing work instead of being on tumblr in the first place. (The other 1 time out of the 10 is because I get distracted. I am sorry; I’m rather easily distractable.)

Lastly, I want to apologize for posting so few poems over the last bunch of months. I’ve been pretty bummed about it and I hope that will change, though I can’t guarantee anything.
