When I first read this to Mr Seven-Year-Old, we were both confused. After I explained taxidermy to him, one of us was still pretty confused – fun and profit? Leaving aside the ‘fun’ part, did I miss the days of the great Kentucky Taxidermy Rush?
Should I consider investing in raccoons?
It bothered me so much I actually stepped up to google, which, as always, was stranger than the funny pages:

Not only did I find reference to a book entitled “Home Taxidermy for Pleasure and Profit”, I found a website that teaches taxidermy by ripping off the tome in question.
The next related site involved transsexuals wearing dead rats as lingerie though, so I figured it was time to end the inquiry.
(Google “transratfashion” if your curiosity runs that way – I ain’t linkin’ it. Definitely NSFW.)
