That beaver job was pretty good apart from the cock-stealing bit, btw.
This guy approves.

Awkward? Imagine that but with human bodies. Presto, you've got what used to be the Walter Reed Museum in DC (and which I think is now called the National Museum of Health and Medicine).

Tanuki (aka Japanese raccoon-dogs), besides being well known animals in Japan, come up in Japanese folk-lore quite a bit.  Bake-danuki are a type of tanuki spirit that has shape-changing abilities.  That particular picture is actually including in the wiki articles on tanuki as one that is at a Buddhist temple in the region where one of the more well known folk-tales takes place.

Nightmares...

As if having a job stuffing dead things wasn't creepy enough, you had to go and make something intentionally scary as fµɔk? Jesus man... Jesus.

Ouch! Right in the edumacation! 
Nah, that's actually pretty interesting. Although I farking hate sandals. They tend to flaunt that they (barely) contain feet.

It's a tanuki.  See the giant balls?  If fact, I just noticed that very pic is on the wiki entry for said tanuki.

Sounds like the Mütter Museum here in Philly; they have the world's largest colon, and a body which turned to soap after it was buried.

If you like things of that sort, you must visit here. Hey, they're celebrating their 150th anniversary year!

God damnit this thread is making me look a damn fool at work. But this in particular made me laugh out loud, congratulations.

I love you all.

I wish I had a photo of the taxidermied cat in the lobby of a B+B I stayed at in Ireland last summer. It was actually quite well done, I just think taxidermization of pets is twisted...

I halfway want to quit my job and become a bad taxidermist.
But wait, maybe I could learn it in my spare time.
