HA! This video almost made me chuckle out loud at my desk. Love it. Have you read Jenny Lawson (www.thebloggess.com)? Her father was a taxidermist and she has some hilarious stories about taxidermy (and just life in general). Highly recommend!

It's a LION in sheep's clothing! Brilliant!

I second the endorsement for The Blogess.

Sort of a new twist on "In like a lion and out like a lamb."

Jenna, I don't think you ever need to worry about a burglar - in the half light of the wood stove on a dark night - that piece of folk art would the scare the hell out of any would be prowler. When I lived in Tennesse (over 30 years ago) we had a loveable mug of a dog that looked ferocious and had a habit of sneaking up on you from behind and giving just one very loud bark and then smiling showing every one of his considerably large teeth. One very dark cold January night, I awoke to the worst racket (and being home alone with my kids) grabed my husband's hunting rifle out of the closet and went running down the hall just in time to see a dark figure burst out thru my screen door and fall face first (he missed the steps)on the patio, attempt to stand only to fall over the barbeque. I called 911 and The cops showed up to haul the guy away and he kept repeating "get that animal away from me". Apparently our loveable "Spot" had watched the guy break-in the back door, crept up behind him in the living room and went "woof" - all the guy saw with his flashlight was teeth. Spot was the neighborhood hero and the cops couldn't stop laughing.

I love that lion! When I saw it at your house I thought it was real and that you had just put sheep's wool over the head. I'm more impressed now that I know it's paper mache.

I agree with Ellen , I think you are protected ! I haven't laughed this much in weeks ! Question ?? Did you sip some of that cider before you videoed this ? Couldn't help notice you were just a bit giddy with giggles yourself !! You are a blessed hard working gal & I enjoyed having a good laugh !

If you ever truly hate that thing - I know a 13 year old who would dig hanging it in his room!
