GungFu: WTF is this shiat?
adragontattoo: Umm #1 is a Platypus, One of 3? egg laying mammals, also it is poisonous venomous.
Ender's: Might as well post the full one since it's in my profile
Enemabag Jones: /Hope I added to this thread per your suggestions.
Aidan: 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.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.
Seth'n'Spectrum: Pestifer: The thing looks a lot like a heraldic lion. Thank god those farkers were killed off in the 11th century.Oh god that reminds me of this:Look up the heraldry, this is absolutely true.
Ringshadow: Le Moo.
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.
big pig peaches: 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.
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:[hot]Ed...ward...It hurts. Edward.
Loreweaver: Ed...ward...It hurts. Edward.You bastard for reminding me ofthat episode/made me want to rip my own heart out when I watched that.
Seth'n'Spectrum: first batch
