Stuffed Road Kill Doll

While driving across Kansas, the thought crossed my mind that a stuffed road kill doll would be a popular backseat kid-cuddly or a nice on-the-street-in-front-of-the-house décor detail. Though soft and furry, the animal doll would be realistically flat and include shattered bones and dried “blood”.

Besides the usual raccoon, skunk, opossum and cat models, exotic elephant and flounder road kill would also be available. Small pockets could be stuffed with beef jerky when displaying in the street to attract crows.

       I'm surprised, FJ, and not pleasantly. Very poor taste.

       Until the family pet loses a fight with a moving car, that is.   

       Oh come now [linty], if this were a benfrost idea you'd love it.

       I'm surprised, Jesus, and not pleasantly, that it's baked.
FarmerJohn, Mar 28 2005

       That's ok FJ, that means its a good idea, plus yours is grosser.

       hit the road, Jack.

       Generally, I like it. It is baked as well as flattened, but obviously an idea whose time had come.

       I'll take a cat model if it has a velco belly stuffed with plush pink intestines.

       This reminds me of Not The Nine O'clock News, where at the beginning of one, there was the hedgehog apology, where they had to apologise for running over a stuffed hedgehog, but it wasn't so cruel as, per se, the people who actually stuff hedgehogs... I've got it all on DVD, I wish I'd lived in the 80s...

       Epoxy a couple dolls onto your neighborhood street where people are excessively speeding (but there have been insufficient fatalities for the city planners to add speed bumps yet).

       //I've got it all on DVD, I wish I'd lived in the 80s// Trust me [froglet] you wouldn't have liked it - no DVDs, just crappy VHS. And Margaret Thatcher.

       Road kill elephant? Now that is something that I don't think I will ever see.

If road kill happens on a hot road, does that mean it is baked?

       wouldn't the stuffing fall out of the holes?
zen_tom, Mar 30 2005

       One of those run over fish carcases up there is mine.   

       [AWOL] Pah, glad I'm not a Brit. Shame I don't have one of their passports though, it would make my German Exchange trip a lot easier...

       Elephant road kill? The only thing thats getting killed there is your car!
energy guy, Mar 30 2005

       //Pah, glad I'm not a Brit// [froglet] It wasn't just us Brits who didn't have DVDs in the 80's - no-one had them. Don't hate us for something that hadn't been invented.
PS, Tell us how the exchange goes, I have a fifteen year-old daughter I'd quite like to swap.
Oh...the idea...yeah. Hmmm, sick, depraved, twisted, extreme bad taste. Obligatory bun.
