With my most sincere apologies to Sweet.
I – don’t wanna know your name
‘Cause you don’t look the same
The way you did before
O.K. – you think you got a pretty face
But the rest of you is out of place
You looked allright before
Fox on the run
You scream and everybody comes a running
Take a run and hide yourself away.
—Fox on the Run, © 1974
Too bad those foxes didn’t run fast enough. Neither did a rabbit, a black cat and…what’s that covering the speed bag? A rat? A muskrat?
Because punching animals in one’s down time = awesome.
So, please. Theories? Explanations? Ideas? The WTFery is pretty profound here for a variety of reasons.

There are times when you have to wonder what, exactly, gave rise to the creative genius behind certain works of art. Take this, for example.
I came not to send peace, but a sword. –Matthew 10:34
I mean…it’s not as though you go out and hunt moles for sport. So the proud owner of this li’l beauty was opportunistic in his or her mole-gathering (though I suppose the same can be said for something like squirrel taxidermy).
…’tis enough,’twill serve. Ask for me tomorrow, and you shall find me a grave man. –Mercutio, “Romeo and Juliet”
And they have even managed to evoke a look of agony on the face of the losing mole as a hole is poked in his too, too mortal flesh.
Lieutenant, is that your sword, or are you just glad to see me? –Mae West
And now we come to it: seriously, WTF? How do you stand there with two mole carcasses and say, “Call me crazy, but I have a plan…”? Whoever you are, taxidermy visionary and genius, we salute you for your contribution to the beautiful WTFery of this world. Carry on! Huzzah!

There I was, one day, minding my own business when Dianna posted to my Facebook feed. “Oh, Terri,” she said, “I have something for you!” As I beheld the picture she posted, and rubbed mine eyes in disbelief I thought…this is too good to not share with the rest of the world. We need a place where all the tragic art, all the misguided food, all the creepster photography, all the freak-show taxidermy, and all the various and sundry inexplicables can be celebrated for the hilarious, head-shaking nightmare fuel they are. And so I give unto you…
Ride ’em, Squirrelboy!
That’s right. It’s a squirrel, riding a rattlesnake. Know what’s even better? Front shot!
I’m ready for my close-up, Mr. DeMille.
That squirrel is a boy.
Can someone please tell me just WTF, exactly, this is all about?
