I’m tempted to do this whole post in caps. THAT’S HOW EXCITED I AM ABOUT IT.

Remember last week when I was trying to buy that dead pony I wanted? (I’ll just apologize for that first sentence right here if this is your first time here. You should probably just come back tomorrow.) Well I got outbid on it, but that was actually a blessing in disguise because then I found something I wanted even more that was just as awesome and also ethically taxidermied.

And a few minutes ago…it arrived.

Knock-knock, motherfucker.

That’s right, y’all.  Anyone can have a dead pony, but it takes a specially fucked up kind of birthday wish to end up with a dead pegasus.

(Special note for those of you who are horrified that I support the slaughter of pegasuses:  It’s actually a zebra colt mannequin covered with old, leftover cow and goose pieces.  You can tell because of the stitching and also because pegasuses are much bigger in real life.)

But don’t tell that to Hunter S. Thomcat:

It's like The Never Ending Story, part 12.

This is officially one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen.

    At Halloween you could give her (him?) fangs and multiple fins and have a Pegasaurus.

    Ok, the results are in!
    Please find your translated text below:
    knock knock, motherfucker (English)

    Uh…ok. You DO have the capital K in your sentence so…I guess you were typing in French, after all. You were totally right. I’m really sorry I made a fuss. I think I should probably brush up on my French before I run around screaming, “J’accuse!”

    By the way, I keep seeing him as sitting up there with a confident stare and his arms folded for some reason. Maybe just something about the pattern of his fur in that photo. Anyway, to me he looks all. “Yeah, I am riding a pegasus. I know how completely splendid I look. I don’t need you to tell me, but thanks anyway.”

  383. I’m pretty sure you should hang your dead pegasus like a chandelier from the ceiling, but low enough so that you can give it a good swing as you walk by to go out the door.

    It could also double as a sort of eccentric trapeze situation, where you get a good running start and grab the hind legs and swing wildly and imagine holding onto a real Pegasus, wind rushing through your hair, like that one in Clash of the Titans (the original, with the animatronic Bobo).

    Once again I owe you a debt of thankatude. Today was a “I need a RED DRESS” kinda day ~ but that was not happening. Instead I was trying to hunt up some of those stupid velcro thingers that you tie back tomatoes with. August in New England, tons of halloween, no tomatoe thingers. I was getting annoyed at life and could not think of a single thing to use instead …….THEN ….. This lady with long brown hair walks by me wearing some sort of nubby brownish thing. She reminded me of the Snuffleupagus that was really a donkey (not judging, just saying what she reminded me of). That made me think of you ….and ….. TWINE! (and the fact that I can be such a dumbsnuffleupagus for not thinking twine in the first place …. sigh ..) I also got to smile in the jokes on me kinda way that I read this blog and could have that type of thought association to begin with … so .. THANKS!!

    Have you thought the effect that carrying all these parcels is having on your mailman’s psyche? Although to counterbalance the inevitable descent into madness, there’s no risk of him delivering a taxidermied Pegasus to the wrong house – and customer satisfaction is just one of those things you can’t buy.

    Can we rename it the Double Pegasuccess Club?

    I said this to my husband, and he said, “Why would you want to be a member of the Double Pegasus Sex Club? That’s just weird!” So you have to enunciate properly, or people may think you’re a perv.

    You leave me in the odd position of hoping you don’t get things you want in the first place, so that you continue to come up with the awesome-blotto things you get to replace them! This way you only get every other amazing thing, but all the things you get are twice as amazing as the first things, at least, so it counts as more than half the awesome. But don’t tell Victor, let him think you are getting only half the things you want, so you get credit for compromising. To recap: you get credit for only getting half the things you want, but they are twice as good as the half you didn’t get. This is the new math. Try to keep up.

    I’d pay money to hear what Victor had to say about this…

  514. Ok, so, long ago I found this weird tiny zebra/horse/giraffe thing that is not taxidermy but some sort of leather craft. It has this crazy wonky eye and this weird afro hair. Long story short, when I saw it, I thought of you. My husband (who sometimes sounds like yours) would not let me buy it unless I promised that I was sending it to you, not keeping it on the bookshelf where it has sat ever since. I was going to give it to you at the book signing in Atlanta but I couldn’t find parking!!

    ANYWAY. Now that you have a dead pony I really feel like you need to see this weird gift if person. You may not want to keep it, and that is fine. But it might make a great cat toy? Problem is – I have no idea how to send you things…And I’d rather not come off as a stalker so just let me know if you have a fan mail PO box or something and I’ll ship it off!

    Actually, I don’t have a lawn. My dream is to have a lawn so I can tell kids to get the hell off of it.

    I’m glad your dreams have come true.

    Most of the time you post a dead thing, and I’m all “oooooh, totally jealous and WANT!”

    This time, not even kind of, but I’d 100% take the kitten. Well, once he’s grown anyway. Kittens are assholes.

    Also, I love the phrase “ethically taxidermied”, because it’s one of those things that makes me go, “That’s…good? Yay?”

  562. What a wonderfully beautiful piece of taxidermied gloriousness. Up until this point, I was having one of those days that makes Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day look like a vacation on a tropical beach with your pre-baby body back and a ridiculously hot cabana boy bringing you champagne slushies in the nude. Him nude, not me. Or maybe me too b/c, hey, the pre-baby body is nothing to be ashamed of. Anyway, the magical-rainbow bliss of that dead pegasus caused me to scream, “OH MY GOD!” with such emotion that it caused both my fiance and son to leap from their chairs in front of the TV yelling, “WHAT?! WHAT?!” Which is pretty impressive b/c usually I have to go into fake cardiac arrest to distract them from the TV. I showed them your pegasus with the same pride I would’ve felt as if it were my own. Their response: “You’re both kooky.” My daughters, however, echoed my enthusiasm as only four- and six-year olds can. Jenny, if we knew each other in real life, we would be best friends. If I had any doubts about that vaguely stalker-ish statement before, they were completely erased by the BEST piece of dead Greek mythology EVER.

  563. I showed the picture to my husband and he asked, “is the kitten real?” Knowing it was your blog, he didn’t think twice about the Pegasus.

  577. You have GOT to find a way to make this thing fly. I see a system of wires and pulleys so the pegasus can fly down into the foyer to greet unsuspecting guests. Victor will love it. In fact, he should be the test subject. Unless you’d like to fly me in. Tee hee.

  634. As they say, when one door closes… Although I still have to admit that, no matter what you say, the fact that you have a dead pegasus is very disturbing. What next, a dead unicorn? Or a griffin? Why do you have to collect DEAD make-believe animals? You’re just, like, killing all my dreams and shit. What next, stuffed Santa? Are you gonna kill the Easter Bunny? I mean, I know you don’t actually DO the killing or the stuffing but still…this just upsets me on all levels. I thought you BELIEVED IN THE MAGIC!

    Having said that, if you come across any stuffed DRAGONS, please let me know, as it would mean a lot to me to own one since I characterize my depression as a big black dragon named Claude. But even though I write about him – a LOT – no one really GETS it because DUH, I’m the only one who can SEE the fucker. So if I get a stuffed one, then when I get really depressed and start giving my meds the twitchy eye and my husband starts looking at me like “oh, no, here we go with THIS shit again”, I can at least point to the dragon and say “It’s all HIS fucking fault, blame HIM.” And maybe I can even smack him around a little bit. They can’t call the animal abuse police if it’s already dead…right?
