Animal Antics and More

Well, I was on my own again this week, but fear not, there are new finds and leftover finds galore, to tickle your funny bone, and amuse that anguish bone.  Yes, this week, we visit the animal kingdom (for the most part) and find out that not all animals are cute and cuddly, or should even be out there on the shelves of our retail destinations.

I am so worried about this selection:

It is so totally out of scale as to disorient the viewer, and if that baby moose was born with those antlers, I really feel for Mommy Moose.

I guess it is better than this one:

Why in the world would you make roadkill figurines?  I know the poor dears get hit on a regular basis, cause some folks can’t be bothered to slow down for animals (and yes, I know it is sometimes unavoidable) but to immortalize the event in resin is just too, too much.  Might as well break out the road kill cafe menu.

Now this next item may fool you into thinking it is not animal related:

but around our house, this furry, feathered, angel, basket, wreath thingy would be one big cat toy.  What self-respecting cat could resist?  And what self-respecting owner would bring something like that into a house thinking it was good for anything else?

After a good romp in the angel wreath, my cat likes to relax, and sit by his very own Romantic Kitty Candle.

Or maybe the candle is to calm the owner while the cat attacks the catnip mouse.  I am just not sure of the motivation for this, but please let me know if you and your cat enjoy candles together.

If your cat, dog, or baby elephant likes to play under the table, have we got the table for you:

This atrocity was over seven feet long, and the piece on top? That’s a leaf that allows you to extend the horror.  It’s huge, it’s glass and brass, and that’s about all we can say about it.  Except that we sure are glad we didn’t see the chairs that went with it.

Sometimes folks just don’t know when to quit.  Take this next example:

They would have just been fine as semi-cute cow bowls for those big servings of Ben and Jerry’s, but did they really need the udder feet?  I have a suspicion that any cow that has to stand on its udders, is in really serious condition.  Call the vet right away.

I am pretty sure these little girls are not animals, at least I hope so, but can someone explain to me what the one on the left is doing?  Must be some new ballet pose, 25th position or something.

Whatever she is up to, the one on the right is praying she will stop as soon as possible.  Maybe even sooner.

And last, but not least, we want to leave you with something a little fun.  Gotta wash that bad taste out somehow.  So we present the pot wreath.  No, not that kind of pot.

We thought it was rather clever.  Maybe not executed the best, but overall, a nice effort.  We all know it could be worse, right?  Pop in again next week for more animalistic surprises, as we present our annual salute to the Easter Bunny and his many minions.

    Awwww….those bowls are udderly adorable! I like the pot wreath, too. It would be so cute on a garden cottage door until the spiders made homes inside each pot. Yes, I live in the country where bugs reign.

    The only thing that does not scare me is mini-flower pot wreath. All the other items would be perfect fodder for target practice. 🙂

      You have our permission to get out the BB gun.

        I was thinking more along the lines of a shot gun. I want to make sure that not only do those questionable items break, but that they break into so many pieces that no one would be able to put them back together. (Just imagine them showing back up in a thrift store with globs of dried glue.)

        Glue could only improve them! Hey maybe they should be broken up and placed on table tops as mosaics, but we need to make sure to scramble all the pieces thoroughly!

  3. We found a roadkill armadillo at the Goodwill a couple of weeks ago:

    We laughed so hard the staff stared at us. It got even worse when we found the “Grow Your Own Crop Circles” kit:
