Those are whitetailed deer not Reindeer.
The one closest to "Santa" looks just like one we have on our wall.


I have always wondered, not being that way inclined myself, what some people find so attractive in (whole or partial) animal corpses that they would want to hang them on their walls/spread them on the floor/keep them in cases.

No insult intended, just genuine interest. Do you think that it is a cultural thing? That local children do not mind mutilated animal corpses and would find that contraption attractive?

Well, first of all, they aren't corpses. It's only the hide and antlers that are from the actual animal. The hide is fitted over a deer shaped polyurethane form and the antlers are attached.
It may seem odd to some people, but in a way it's paying tribute to the animal. Sure beats looking at a photo of the actual animal after the hunt. NOTE: I do not condone shooting any animal JUST to make a rug out of it, or to have it stuffed.
As far as what children think, well, if they are raised in a family that hunts, I don't think they give it a second thought.

My basic philosophy when it comes to animal hides is not to waste. For instance, I have no problem with leather, because we eat the animals it comes from. I'm not too keen on trophies if the rest of the animal is just left to rot, at least feed it to the dog or something. (Milo, here boy!) Or, so as to not waste, mount the animals on your wall:

And then capture their spirits and use them as your mutant ghostly minions:

See? Isn't that better?

Found that on a friend's Facebook profile.

A school in New Zealand had this as their answering machine message for a time. People actually complained! :facepalm:

When I was a kid, we were too poor to buy staples, If we wanted to attach two pieces of paper together, we had to use the fold-the-corner-and-tear-it method.

Back when I was a wee tacker, my dad used to beat me to death and then send me to school! We had to work for twenty-nine hours a day licking gravel until it was clean!

We didn't have gravel, that was for the rich families. All we had was used poop. And we were grateful for it!!!

Used poo! Luxury! We had used camel poop! And they'd been eating only prunes for six weeks prior!

Variations: A March 2009 version (circulated with an MP3 recording) identified the institution with the unusual phone message as Maroochydore High School, in Queensland, Australia, and added a further "menu option" of 'If you want this in another language, move to a country that speaks it.'
I've been to Maroochydore a few times and one of my cousins goes to that particular high school, so I asked her and it was indeed false. But the school loved the publicity!

Right! We had to get up half an hour before we went to bed, drink a cup of cold poison, pay a shilling a week to work 26 hours a day down mill and when we got home Dad would murder us and dance on our graves singing hallelujah! And you try telling that to children today and they won't believe you.
