    Disemboweling bullet-riddled animal corpses somehow does not really speak to me, but maybe it’s something for the younger CSI crowd…

    Cr. Mass – So I’m guessing that’s a “no” on a Boxing Squirrel diorama for your birthday present then.

    Red Cardinal – Didn’t they replace the eyes of the stuffed animal with glass (plastic nowadays, I guess). Hmm, maybe a set of multi-color ultra-bright wide-angle LEDS (the kind you find under pimped-out rides) in each glass eye ?
    Or where you thinking more of fiber optics strands woven through-out the squirrel fur, transmitting colored light like a fiber optic christmaas tree?

      Fibre optics would be good. Glowing eyes on their own would only make Mr Squirrel appear satanically possessed ;)

    “Hello son, handling dead animals again I see.”

    Even comics can’t make taxidermy less creepy.
