All I want for Christmas is a drawer of sheep

So, apparently this Spanish artist (Oscar Tusquets Blanca) decided to make some taxidermied sheep tables because WHO WOULDN’T WANT THAT?

It's supposed to be a telephone table but I think it's better used as a small baaaaaar.  (Shut up.  I can't help myself.)

It’s supposed to be a telephone table but I think it’d better used as a small baaaaaar. (I’m so sorry. I can’t help myself.)

I was intrigued, but then I noticed that were each $80,000 and then I fell off my chair and hit my head on my desk, and I considered suing Oscar for damages.  It’s just a small bruise but it’s probably worth about $80,000 if that’s how we’re pricing things now.  Then I remembered that my dad is a professional taxidermist and my grandfather is a professional carpenter and my parent’s neighbors have pet sheep so daddy could just go shear a bunch of them in the dead of night and then no lambs would have to die (unless they died from being too cold because my dad stole their coats ) and my mom and my sister both know how to design and sew clothes so they could just knit coats for the naked sheep and this just turned into a family affair and OH MY GOD, THIS IS PERFECT AND NOW I KNOW WHAT I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS.  

That, or $80,000.  I could go either way.

  132. OK, so here’s what I’m thinking. That lamb sounds like it could be a bit pricey, so I have an alternative that you might want to think about. I have a cat that would make a lovely jewelry box. Now, it’s not dead yet, but it’s old… I mean REAL old, so you shouldn’t have long to wait.

    It’s black, with beautiful green eyes and it’s got a nice shiny coat with only one small bare spot that I’m sure you could cover up with something. This cat is the perfect size too. It has plenty of room inside to hold your valuables (once you hollow it out) yet not so large as to take up all the space on your shelf, or nightstand.

    Best of all is the price. It’s a whole lot lass than eighty grand. I’m talking about FREE (gratis!) here! Not only that, but if you act now, I’ll even pay the shipping! The thing is, you will need to move fast on this. (before my roommate gets home)

    I would send you a picture, but it’s hiding under the bed. (I just don’t understand cats at all)

  134. Somewhat related … saw a movie about zombie sheep that act menacingly and eat humans. It was one of the funniest/worst things I have ever seen. It’s called Black Sheep and it is out of New Zealand. Give it a watch, preferably after having had too much wine!

  135. I’m pretty much brainless right now and couldn’t find a way to email you directly on your site, but that’s okay because what I wanted to tell you about is actually kind of related to this post, so at least I’m not interrupting as much as I might have been. Right? Um, yeah. Anyway, apparently at the Consumer Electronics Show there are some breakdancing taxidermied weasels (or squirrels, maybe hamsters. Stoats?) But the only info I can find about them is a single picture on Popular Science, wtf?! Could you use your amazing powers of Bloggess-ness to find out more about this? The world needs to know!

    If you do get it and put it on caster wheels, be sure the the wheels squeak a bit. Then at night, in the dark, yoyr rolling sheep wine bar can’t sneak up on you.

  140. I don’t know how I feel about taxidermied animals serving an actual purpose. On Oddities they turned a monkey riding a dog into a cooler. And the dog dispensed drinks. It made me feel weird.

  141. Um, did you scroll down the page in your link? There is a whole entire bedroom ensemble made from sheep, including a bed, and a curtain holding sheep headboard. I kind of think the girl in the picture is trying to reenact Luke Skywalker’s Taun-taun adventure. But with less blood. Love the table, am kind of squeamish about sleeping in a sheep. But that might just be me.

  150. No. This is not a table. It’s a fabulous cat toy! I think the drawer is for the catnip and the table is the place to sit when it’s positioned under a window.

I hope you receive many pieces of furniture made from the stuffed carcasses of dead animals. At least these creatures can continue to serve mankind while dressing up your humble abode.

    Now, do you have this Oscar guy’s address? I want to have him make a luggage cart out of small rhino. That would be so cool ,wouldn’t it?

  159. I absolutely concur with Jasette23 about having this AMAZING find on casters. But, one would have to have two, right? For either side of the bed or couch? I mean, symmetry is important. But if you’re not the matchy-matchy type, you could have Baabra (baarilliant) on one side, and say, a goat on the other, for that “I’m so cool that my taxidermied side tables don’t match, but DO in a way that is WAY too fashionable for you philistines to understand.” Personally, I’d get a ram since I’m an Aries – I’m not an astrology freak, but that would help with lulls in conversation, since I don’t think that lambs appear on the zodiac. Wait. A ram is a boy sheep – never mind. OK, I’m rambling, but I thought you’d appreciate that. Anyway, my point? Two. I’ll go soon, I promise, but I’d lean a bit harder on your dad. I’m still waiting for my kitchen table from my carpenter father, and no animals were even required for that! He’s SO lazy. Thanks again for being my imaginary internet friend. You make me laugh, and you make me feel better with the weirdest shit. I also want to make you soup sometimes. And now I want lamb chops. Is that wrong?

    I thought this table was the whackiest taxidermy I’d ever seen. But buzzfeed just posted a “Which badly taxidermied animal are you?” quiz. I’m sure I won’t be the only person curious which one you’d be. (I never really saw myself as a lamb extruding a duck, but what do I know.)
