GungFu: WTF is this shiat?


Umm #1 is a Platypus, One of 3? egg laying mammals, also it is poisonous.

#2 is a Jackalope, similar to a Snipe. It is used to fool the gullible.

The barbershop I try to go to every time I go see family has a bunch of different "joke" taxidermy. The Jackalope one has been there longer then my Father can remember.

Enemabag Jones:
I always like the 'experimental' taxidermy done around the 19th century.
They were making fish with fur, , monkeys that lived in the water and other animals that did not exist as high concept works of art, and just dares. Some were really, really well done.
Because of this the duck-billed platypus was rejected as a real animal.
/I forgot what this line of taxodermy was called.
Aidan;
So I went to Wiki and be darned if you aren't absolutely right.
And WTF is up with the electroreception? I mean... Wow. Just totally weird.


Aidan;
I have better things to do than post book reports from wikipedia to fark.
I remember a few years back in the early days of the internet, and easily learn interesting things from discussion threads.

But just for you I will add the comments below if that will help...

What's even weirder than the electroreception thing (which sharks and some fish have too) is this quote from wiki: "When swimming it can be distinguished from other Australian mammals by the absence of visible ears." If you're close enough to notice a lack of ears, then I'd have thought the duck's bill combined with the fur would've been a bit of a giant farking clue.

Look up the heraldry, this is absolutely true.

I call BS. A taxidermist gets bones and teeth. Then he used human shaped teeth.

I think the taxidermist was just farking with them.

cryinoutloud: GungFu: WTF is this shiat?

The first one is a platypus. It's for reals. And the second one is a jackalope, but they only live on our walls, despite what some people have heard.


When we first got married, my wife and I stayed in Arizona and the hotel we stayed at had a little museum of local artifacts and such. In the museum they had a jackalope hanging on the wall with a similar description. I had my wife convinced they were real. To be honest, if I hadn't seen them for sale in a novelty catalog years earlier, I might have bought it too. Years later, she brought it up during small talk at a business meeting. I don't know how the topic came up but was she mad at me.

This old lady brings her two dogs that were just run over to a taxidermist. Then she asks him if he would be able to preserve them. He than asks her if she wants them mounted and she says "no they were just good friends"

ElPolloLoco: I just don't get it. Even if you had never seen a lion before, why would you think its tongue sticks out and its eyes are crossed?

Give him a break, he'd only seen them in pictures


Damned if doesn't look like that was his model.

Oznog: postnobills: A similar story is told about the lion sculptures flanking the base of Nelson's Column in Trafalgar Square, London. The artist, Sir Edwin Landseer, had never seen a lion when he was commissioned to create them in 1867 so he was provided with the semi-dessicated corpse of one to use as his model. It didn't work out very well, so he ended up using his St. Bernard instead. The result is decidedly canine, especially the paws:

talulahgosh: is this a twilight reference?


In case it really is that obscure, it's from *this* show:
www.ancientscrossroads.com

In the episode I'm referring, the main characters are mentored by a State Alchemist, who is faced with a deadline to create a talking chimera. If he fails, he will lose all his research funding, his job/title, and his home. He becomes desperate, and does the unthinkable: he permanently *fuses* his 4-year-old daughter with the family dog.

As the main character is beating the crap out of the guy for doing that, I sat there wishing I could strangle the life out of him myself.

/I think I get too emothionally involved in fictional characters, at times.
