7/8/2003: Mummified monkey

They loved their pets so much they had them slaughtered and stuffed? You always hurt the ones you love.

Or, perhaps the animal died of natural causes before its human and said human had the animal mummified in anticipation of their own death.

The shadow of his profile on the wall is cool.
Insightful photographers catch good shadows like that.

People are doing the same thing today with their beloved passed on pets. Taxidermists must be direct descendents of these people.

Of course those who want more info can go to www.animalmummies.com. (I think I read about this in KMT magazine before I let my subscription slide.)

There is a company in my town that calls themselves:

Maybe they really specialize in non-typical work ... no deer, moose, or bobcats ... just things like grandma?

That was another weird thing about it. When I first spotted their name on the company truck, it was pulling out of the driveway of a being-constructed mausoleum in one of the local cemeteries.

TAXIDERMIST- I'm so sorry your two monkeys died. Do you want them mounted?

non-typical in the rough...
What do you think about this alternative? You or your friends or pets could become a carbon jewel.

If my family creates a jewel out of me when I die, does that mean if I'm really large that I'll be more valuable in the afterlife?
joydriven Wednesday Jul 9 04:28 PM
maybe larger body mass would just leave behind a larger-carat jewel in the beforelife?
