Friday Photo -on a Saturday

One idea I’ve had to fill the week is sharing a photo. In my ‘travels,’ I see odd, quirky, funny, or sweet. Why not show you?

The alliteration works better on a Friday, so ignore that it’s really Saturday.

Believe it or not, this was hanging from the roof of a rather humble, indoor archery range.

This is a taxidermied turkey (thanks, Norah). …but, why?

    I like it if it’s alive. Otherwise maybe it’s quirky. Surely not funny of sweet?

      It’s strange. Who would stuff a chicken and hang it from the ceiling for decoration?

    It’s a step up from the China ducks flying across my grandmother’s fireplace when I was small. Now they were creepy with their lack of progress and ever seeing eyes.

    That is so disturbing. I’m going to have nightmares 😣

    Is it Haitian? There’s a sense of voodoo about it. Maybe it ensures they’re better shots.

      🤔 I hadn’t considered a purpose beyond ‘tacky.’ You may be right.

    Looks like a film poster for ‘Curse of the killer-turkeys!’

    It was clearly a bad day when this lost turkey landed downrange.

    Gotta admit its one completely stuffed turkey now. Lets give thanks for that?

    If I hadn’t read the caption, I’d be a bit terrified! I wonder if it really acted like that when it was alive.

      I’ve just had a funny thought: what if it *never* acted like that when alive?

    My Aunt and Uncle love fishing, so they have a lot of plasticated (is that a word?) fish. To each their own, I guess?

    Also, it begs the question why taxidermied deer heads are so acceptable. How did that happen? How did it get to be so common that it’s even homey to some? Why not turkeys?

      I find all taxidermied animals disturbing. This one puts me in mind of lawn flamingos.
