to not get why people have deer heads on their walls?

They take up so much room! Surely a smaller animal would work better? You'd have room for family photos and commemorative plates too.

Maybe cats or turtles would work better. Or a hamster if you live in a flat.

I have the mental image of a teeny tiny hamster head now... Thanks for that...

A pub I know has the taxidermized heads of many animals up on the wall, including, if you look closely, a spaniel.

What I really don't get is the postmodern-y deer heads made of paper or something.

I'd love a hamster head on my wall grin

LRD if you're gonna have an animal head on your wall, you need to make sure it's made of animal.

LRDtheFeministDude Thu 06-Dec-12 22:37:49

That's the rule I've always lived by, santa.

Yabu.

They may very well have been there for a few hundred years and cast a very amusing nose picking type shadow on the fucking ugly portrait of your great granddads distant relation Mary whose portrait freaks you out.

And have you ever tried to set fire to one of those bastard things?

My neighbour's cat would look nice on my wall... It matches the paint.

Mine is just a section of skull and antlers on a plaque. No fur or eyes. Its very useful for hanging things on - seasonal decorations etc.

I didn't shoot it myself, I found it at a flea market and just fancied it.

YABU until you've at least tried it yourself smile

I suppose I could use somewhere to hang my hats...

Hamster heads aren't so good for hats...

Maybe a set of badger feet?

grin

Please tell your neighbour that.

TheSecretSantaDNCOP Thu 06-Dec-12 22:48:29

I wonder how a selection of dogs sorted by size would look...

TheSecretSantaDNCOP Thu 06-Dec-12 22:49:04

Apart from surprised obviously.

It is Hunter Chique.

It is like making a mockery of the leisuring classes that are leading us out into doom and gloom.

My fucking shitty arsed cat's head who has recently taken to dumping in the house on my carpets(crapets) because she is being bullied in the garden ....by a gay ginger tom ...grow some fucking balls girl and twat the fucker , then stop shitting on my carpets angry

I suppose it is nicer to look at than deer arses, though

TheSecretSantaDNCOP Thu 06-Dec-12 22:55:12

pat! Where have you been? Get over to the sweary thread!

TheSecretSantaDNCOP Thu 06-Dec-12 22:58:38

Do pets at home deliver?

PretzelTime Thu 06-Dec-12 23:05:18

Antlers, OK fine, but I don't get why you'd want a severed animal head on your wall at all. It's like they're spying on you with their dead, accusing eyes.

TheSecretSantaDNCOP Thu 06-Dec-12 23:19:45

Maybe you should replace their eyes with those giant comedy sunglasses? Or those eyes on springs.

cynnerthenaughtyreindeer Thu 06-Dec-12 23:23:01

The only dead head I would hang on my wall would be a pink glitter unicorn

cynnerthenaughtyreindeer Thu 06-Dec-12 23:23:50

PAAAAAT..you dirty git! where you bin?

We've got antlers on the wall.

They are very good for playing that hoopla game.
