What NOT To Get Me For Christmas

Or EVER. Dubious thanks to Sue for the heads-up. It's a big ol' dead horse. On Ebay. For sale. Seriously--you may NOT want to click the link. But if you do, the phrases I would draw your attention to are:

"wonderful gift for horse-lover," " conversation piece for living room," and "Front right leg is missing..."

Mind you, this is "Old style taxidermy, not done anymore. " Methinks there is a reason for that.

Off to read from "Black Beauty" now. *shudder*


  1. Maybe I could put it in my boss's bed...

  2. Ugh, I find that very disturbing. It doesn't look like that horse was well-treated (even when alive).

    I wonder if Fin, Feather, and Fur Taxidermy in Jacksonville has ever been asked to "stuff" a horse. haha Somehow I doubt it.

    By the way, you get a big fat F for commenting on OTHER people's blogs (aka mine and my mothers). Seems a little hypocritical to me, Ms. Please-Comment-Or-I-Will-Suffer-Extreme-Mental-Psychosis. :-P

  3. jon--don't.

    Melissa--I'll get there! It takes me a week to work through my blogline roll...don't you wonder why I show up one day and make a week's worth of comments? Gotta see you mom's Christmas house! And I am more delicate than most.

  4. I think I'm going to have that done to myself and left to someone.

    Imagine that Ebay ad.

  5. I knew you'd like that.

    I do have to wonder how many beers went into establishing that starting price. $800? Ya think?

    Maybe if it didn't look so much like it was having a seizure.

    I keep thinking, "Sorrow floats."

  6. Uh-oh. Does anyone know how to cancel an order on eBay?

  7. Okay, that was probably the most disturbing auction to date. Yeah, great gift idea.

    Mommy: Honey, remember when you asked Santa for that pony?

    Child: (upon seeing the horse) AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Giggles. Well, that's one way to cure a kid of asking for a pony.

    Yep. You can put that on my Not List for Christmas too.

    Live ones are messy, but so much better than dead ones.

    Have a very Merry Christmas!

  9. I can't believe someone paid $800 for that thing! Ew Ew Ew!

  10. Hey, if you're leaving for the holiday, Merry Christmas to all y'all.

  11. Some idiot actually bought that for $800.00. I did go see it, but normally can't bear to see stuff like that. Some people are really sick.
    I agree with you, DON'T buy me that either!

  12. Hi Belinda! Thanks for visiting my really wasn't a contest!! Hope you all have a really fabulous Christmas. Hugs and Kisses to Bella!
