This is what it looks like:
The thing with unorthodox taxidermy is..... basically using real parts of animals and making a new one or mismatching pieces .... think Jackalope
Anyways, we were talking about this when I looked over at him and asked a serious question.
" Do you think anyone has ever taxidermied a baby?"
I already know how weird it sounds once spoken out loud...
He looks over at me and recoils in horror.
"WHAT KIND OF SICK SHIT IS THAT!!!!Krista thats fucked up... Oh My God thats so disturbing!!"
"NO, No , No. Not like killing a baby in the wild and then taxiderming it.... like you know how some people taxidermy beloved pets when they die? Kinda like that... you know if the baby dies.. and someone is grieving and doesn't want to bury it. Like that." ( God forbid anything happen to my kids.. but if it did...maybe?)
He still looks unconvinced "Like have it laying in the crib or sit it in a swing?"
" EXACTLY!! "
He asked "Who would DO THAT??"
" I don't know but maybe there is a market for that?" ( there are grieving parents right?)
He looks back over at me and throws his head back and starts roaring with laughter .
" What if someone did unorthodox taxidermy to a baby... like putting man size teeth in it's head... grinning , like that commercial where those old people put in the wrong dentures..."
"OMG DAVID!!! NOW WHO IS THE SICK FUCK!!!!"
As wrong and disturbing the whole exchange is, for some reason we can help laughing until we cry.
Yes... this is typical of the both of us ... somehow people still like us.
*I understand that dead babies are no laughing matter, it's actually quite sad. But trying to make things silly is how we deal with the uncomfortable things in life.
