Taxidermy + Squirrels + Gigantic Testicles = Internet GOLD

I was recently having a twitter conversation with Stephanie from Crazy.Beautiful.Life, when she linked an ebay auction to me.

The auction (as of Thursday) is still running, for a taxidermied squirrel wearing a hat and cape...

...and showing his 'squirrelhood' to the world...

A fun conversation ensued.  It involved naming him Zorro McSquirrelNuts, asking people "What would Zorro McSquirrelNuts do?" (instead of the WWJD fad from year ago), an awkward-yet-tempting marriage proposal (rawwr) and eventually dubbing him THE MOST INTERESTING SQUIRREL ON THE EARTH.

I started thinking of Dos Equis-esque quotes that would work for this charming fellow, and it gradually evolved into these:






So... the question at hand is... Did Stephanie and I inadvertently create a new internet meme?  If so, feel free to take the Taxidermied Squirrel template below and design your own...

Right-Click.   Save-as.   ????????   Profit!

And please... if you can think of other funny things to add, please leave a comment below.  Zorro thanks you!

p.s. - As mentioned earlier, the auction for "Zorro" is still live, as of March 1.  Click here to bid!  (I am not auctioning off this animal, nor am I profiting from this mention.  I just think it's fucking awesome...)
Please Share it! :)

The Bloggess actually did a whole post on this little guy this week. It's still as disturbing today as it was a couple days ago. I need to bleach my eyes...

Pickleope said...

He would be a flying squirrel but he's weighed down.
Hey Alvin, check out these chipmunks.
How much wood could a woodchuck chuck? I know.
He appears wherever a tea bag is needed.
What does he have for breakfast? Juevos of course.

Bozo said...

He is rather cool lol... would look just beautiful in my living room I'm sure!

A Beer for the Shower said...

That little thing is awesome. I really hope this takes off as a meme. I'm getting so sick of that lame hyperbole and a half "ALL of the things!" meme.

Lady Estrogen said...

Wait. Does The Bloggess know that he's for sale? Seems like something she would bid on.

eke said...

I NEED THIS TO BE MINE!!!!!!!

eke said...

I NEED THIS TO BE MINE BUT IM TOO POOR :(

Workingdan said...

I never thought I would be jealous of a squirrel.

Random Girl said...

fucking awesome indeed! I feel like my Thursday has been significantly improved because of having seen this. If this is setting the tone for March, it's going to kick ass!!

Zombie said...

I think I just witnessed the birth of a meme. I feel so proud!

AccordingtoJewels said...

I don't know why anything you do surprises me. LOL. this squirrel is awesome. I can't wait for this meme to take off!

Brandon @ www.lostinidaho.me said...

@Abby: You're right, sort of. She linked to the squirrel, but didn't actually do anything major with the balls-squirrel. She photoshopped another instead.

Which, this is funny, because I wrote this post the same day she did hers, I just backlogged it because I had other posts publishing.

Does this mean I inadvertently copied the Bloggess?? If so, where are my hundreds of comments and millions of pageviews???

Orang3 said...

I just lol'd hard

Adsila said...

Yikes, a tiny dead squirrel flasher with a big dong. It would make for an interesting conversation piece.

Ellen Lloyd said...

Yeah, I read about this on the Bloggess! She and a friend of hers both got outbid when it was originally sold.

I predict that (if the Bloggess army discovers this auction) one of them will buy it and mail it to Jenny. XD

Excellent. :D

Brandon @ www.lostinidaho.me said...

Ha, I want it. I need an army of Idahomies to step up. :)

Hey Monkey Butt said...

HA!!! I effn love this!

Shutterbug said...

haha...cute squirrel

Bart said...

lmfao why am i looking at squirrel nuts. wtf

Al Penwasser said...

Didn't anyone tell him to leave those squirrel hookers in Tijuana alone?
No WONDER the little buggers are always running around looking for nuts.

Michael said...

LMAO @Pickelope!

My mother needs this. I may have to bid on it.

G said...

I want this for my desk in work

Masshole Mommy said...

I want this SO fricken bad. Do you know how many people I could scare the shit out of with this thing? The possibilities are endless.

Zyu said...

Oh wow, I could have lived my whole life without knowing what squirrel nuts looked like.

LogAllot.com said...

LMAO! After seeing this again, still has me in tears laughing. OMG! That sh-t was so funny when you sent it to me the other day.

middle child said...

Don't know what the squirrel goes for on E-bay but my husband has been shooting them in the backyard-shhh, don't tell anyone. He then takes them to his taxidermy friend. I think I need to show him this picture. On the other hand, I have no room in my house to hang another ANYTHING dead.

Youngman Brown said...

Epic. Just insanely epic.

Abby said...

@Brandon: I like your take on it better. She could post a picture of a straw found on the sidewalk and a million people would tell her it was genius.

Thank, Q said...

LOL @ the photo! That squirrel's nuts! Zorro the Squirrel. Hmmm, let me see if I can come up with anything:

"Instead of Z's, I inscribe D's for deez nuts!"

"The real distraction is the hat."

"Hey, my eyes are up here, thank you!"
