Seasons WTF!? greetings

(Please if you take offense please divert your eyes to another blog thank you. ps- Seasons greetings)

So I love living in a small town, especially when I see things like the photo on this post.

You know everyone.
Everyone knows you.
You go to school with the same group of kids and can still call them by name all these years later.
You can walk into the deli and the person behind the counter says to you before you even order "Lamb Gyro, no onions, bottle of white creme soda" yup. Mmmm.

In a small town people need to find things to do considering the big city is a good distance away. Sometimes they entertain themselves by wreaking havoc but chances are they don't because your mom knows what you did before you even get back in the door. That is the kind of town I was born and raised in.
Once and a wile they give you the desperately needed dose of WTF!? (What the F***!?)

Today in the early morning hours I was driving back after getting an E-test on my car (which has over 300 thousand KM on it and tosses out a test of 3/4 lower than the max allowed amount. Good car, good) and doing my morning barns when I see something on the side of the road.
I squinted and strained to see what it was. It was red and green and sticking out of a snow bank. As I drove by I realized it was this fellow, whom I came back a wile later to take pictures after nearly swerving off the road I was laughing that hard.

Do you think the people who ran him over came back trying to make peace with his vengeful soul?

See this guys story. He is a raccoon. Raccoon's get hit by things and die at the side of the road. Sometimes they aren't so lucky and they are spread over several feet of asphalt. But this coon was lucky see because he died on the side of the road only mildly mangled to rot. That was until we got our snow almost two weeks ago. The snow plow came by and scraped him up, placing him neatly in the snow drift so he can perfect his T-Rex impression. Then by some random act of randomness someone put a pair of headband Christmas antlers on him. They didn't stop there they also put a nice shrine of candy canes around his taxidermy body.
So if this offends you I am sorry. If only all road kill could be so festive on the side of the road and not on my tires.

I hope you all have a very merry Christmas or Happy holiday and santa didn't bring you too many road apples for your stocking.

Hilarious, and if it causes an accident I guess the poor thing will have its revenge.

That thing just made my night. You got some crazy funny folks around there.
First thing came to mind was the Beatles song, and these verses:

"Rocky burst in and grinning a grin
He said Danny boy this is a showdown
But Daniel was hot-he drew first and shot
And Rocky collapsed in the corner.

The doctor came in stinking of gin
And proceeded to lie on the table
He said Rocky you met your match
And Rocky said, Doc it's only a scratch
And I'll be better
I'll be better doc as soon as I am able.

Now Rocky Raccoon he fell back in his room
Only to find Gideon's bible
Gideon checked out and he left it no doubt
To help with good Rocky's revival."

Looks like Rocky's got his revival up on that there snow bank.

I think we should go with offerings of unwanted fruitcake on boxing day.

All glory to the Christmas Coon!

WhiskeyTangoFoxtrot moment! ;)

Nuzzling Muzzles said...

Wow! There is something new under the sun after all. Wait... I have a song entering my head: "Let's give 'em somethin' to talk about..." Happy holidays.

juliette said...

I can always count on you to put the "wtf" into a Christmas greeting! LOL! Happy Holidays, Sydney!

Okaaaay. Another use for a "sail 'coon." Not quite aerodynamically flat enough for tossing, so put to another use. Small town folks are resourceful. ;-)

Laura M. said...

LMAO!!! Ok, I just about fell off the couch laughing at that one! Awesome! Anyway, Merry Belated Christmas to you and Indigo from Laura and Panache :)

Desert Rose said...

I agree if it was not a deliberate kill...then making the poor little guy spread some Christmas joy probably gave him a chuckle to up in racoon heaven!

Jessie McCandless said...
