Things You Don't See Everyday

I came home and there was a giant moose head on my kitchen table. I don't want to say it frightened me - because that would make me a wuss - but it was pretty unsettling. Especially cause it was at night and there were votive candles placed lovingly in its ears.

  1. Looks like you could turn it upside down and use it for the base of a table itself.

  2. Yeah i can see how that would cause consternation when seen at night. So who got you it and why?

  6. Oh, my... I don't see the votive candles. and I'm basically over the concussion by now, too.

    Seems you take surprises rather well; some folks don't. My ex didn't, altho she thought it might be nice to get a moose head one day.

  7. Why does a moose head eerily glowing while seemingly suspended in darkness sound like something that Callie would encounter? LOL

  9. No realli! She was Karving her initials on the møøse
    with the sharpened end of an interspace tøøthbrush given
    her by Svenge - her brother-in-law - an Oslo dentist and
    star of many Norwegian møvies: "The Høt Hands of an Oslo
    Dentist", "Fillings of Passion", "The Huge Mølars of Horst
    Nordfink".

  10. It looks really like a scene from a David Lynch movie.

    Very unsettling, indeed...

  11. I just had to comment because Mark's Monty Python quote from the Holy Grail was exactly what this post made me think about!!! :>

  12. Yep, that would do it for me, too.

  14. Oh, THAT. Thought for sure you'd like it...I did my final project for my film program in Maine on taxidermy, this was a little keepsake. If you want to see how it was mounted, let me know :0)

    It wouldn't say you were being a wuss if that creeped you out. If I came home at night and found a moose head it would scare the crap outta me! LOL

    If you don't mind me asking why do you have a moose head? :)

  17. If you just ignore him he'll go away. He's just trying to get attention... hence the candles in the ears.

  18. My cat only drags home dead rodents. Your's got a Moose? It must have eaten the body.

  19. And no one has made a "Nice Rack" comment? So disappointing.

  20. What's a little strange to me is I don't find this odd at all. It's a perfectly empty table that needed a little something. Draping a fox skeleton over it would make it complete.

  21. To fiction fiend: Disappointing to you maybe, but to me a sign that our girl has fans with class. With the exception of us two (I'm a baaaad boy...).

    Antlers aside, that doesn't actually look like the head of anything, much less a moose (and while I'm Canadian, my only exposure to moose--that's the plural and the singular, although I'm sure you folks know that--was the one who palled around with the flying squirrel.

    You know, you could use that thing as the basis for a film: the discovery of a prehuman civilization known as "Antlertis."

    Me very tired. Go bye bye now.

  22. Continuing from my message to fictionfiend: not long after making the "Antlertis" joke, I remembered it'd already been done in one of the better "Mad"-type magazines of the '70s (yes, I'm aging myself in admitting I was a teenager when it came out), "Crazy." It had, for the first year or so. an ongoing strip titled "History of Moosekind," that did in fact include a lost civilization known as...well, now you know.

    I'm not really a bad boy. But I am a bad, bad man...

    Nothin' up mah sleeve...
