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.

Thats definately one for the bathroom. Your OH would never hang around in there for ages again!

For those who wanted one, theres a deers 'rear end' on here, about

Also a squirrel in a canoe?

WTF

I have a stuffed owl

TheSecretSantaDNCOP Fri 07-Dec-12 11:19:53

Better than a sofa!

Chopsypie Fri 07-Dec-12 11:20:40

Could be used a toddler climbing frame, and possibly a dining table

TheSecretSantaDNCOP Fri 07-Dec-12 11:20:49

Do you also have a stuffed piglet, pooh and Christopher robin?

HullyEastergully Fri 07-Dec-12 11:22:16

No, just an owl

Chopsypie Fri 07-Dec-12 11:23:38

That would be a great showpiece in a nursery. Not sure how legal human taxidermy is though?

It's fashion innit. It's the same reason why people had macrame plant holders with spiderplants and lava lamps in the 70's. People will look back in 20 years and think 'why the fuck did we have a fake dead animal skull on our wall and why did we have words plastered over everything like we forgot what to do - Cook, Live, Bathe, Love etc?'.

I inherited my owl, trouble is, it would seem heartless to get rid of it, it looks at me with its great owly eyes

And I made the mistake of clicking Chopsypie's octupus link while eating.

BARFFFF

I'd actually really like a study with oxblood leather armchairs and a huge globe and some dead animals.

It's part of my "lottery" house. Next door to my arcade.

TheSecretSantaDNCOP Fri 07-Dec-12 11:28:11

hully if you ever want rid of it I'd be happy to sit and stroke it all day smile

HullyEastergully Fri 07-Dec-12 11:29:32

I couldn't, but thank you.

Also, it's in a glass dome so not very strokable

BendyBobsBrusselsSprouts Fri 07-Dec-12 11:30:25

Or how about a nice girly one

TheSecretSantaDNCOP Fri 07-Dec-12 11:36:32

I'd have to have a strokeable one. Otherwise I'd probably keep knocking on the glass asking if it had enough air...

Chopsypie Fri 07-Dec-12 11:39:59

thesecretsanta Mine to. Except mine is a library. Like the one in Beauty and the Beast. But with Dark Green wallpaper and dead things on the walls

I thought the reason to have a stag head on the wall was so when you do the knicker flick with your foot, as you take off your undercrackers your knickers have somewhere to display themselves, if you fail to catch them on your head.

Have you heard of Emma Hawkins? She's an antique dealer who specialises in taxidermy. I would spend so much money in her shop. Plus I'm a tiny bit in love with her blush

amillionyears Fri 07-Dec-12 11:49:07

I think I will take this thread with a pinch of salt [and pepper, and, do people eat deer?]

Chopsypie Fri 07-Dec-12 11:52:13

Yes if you can afford it. Venison is deer.

Chopsypie Fri 07-Dec-12 11:52:56

I am loving the giraffe thing on her website.

<sigh> I've always wanted a Giraffe
