Death and Contests

Yesterday as I was making my trek down Western Blvd. (the ONLY street in Jville..not really but kinda) I passed this sad and stiff dead deer. It was too close to the road and too huge NOT to get a picture so I quickly risked my life and swerved off the road to take a closer look.
I admit. I have an obsession with dead bodies. Human, animal...it doesn't matter. I like them all. When I worked at Restland, my most favorite part was seeing the car accident victims come in. It's horrible, I'm a sicko, I know...but I have this weird obsession with wanting to look at death. It's so fascinating, right? Like the time I tried to see the dead beaver, I just can't help myself.
So when I pulled over to see this beast, I had to take a picture. I got pretty close and WANTED to get closer and get more of the face but I had this crazy feeling in my gut that it was just faking being dead and any minute it was gonna scramble to get up on it's feet and attack me. I played the whole scenario out in my head and it didn't turn out well so I decided not to get more than just this one picture.

Now on to contests...
I've decided that since I can't BE everywhere and SEE all the death available to us car drivers, I need YOU to send me your BEST road kill picture. Yes folks, this means the most gory, the biggest, the nastiest, bloodiest, stiffest, piece of dead meat you can find on the side of the road. Get out, take a picture and email it to me at
Rules are:
It HAS to be YOUR picture. You can't go google image searching for something. I'm trusting you on this one.
It has to be dead. I can't take anything that's in MID death and still shaking or in pain. That's just sick.
It has to be an animal. No humans please.
And the best part?
The winner will receive...
DUM DUM DUM DUM DUM DUM DUM.....
MY BEAUTIFUL FLOWERDY SHIRT!!!
seen here in this picture...
and in almost every other freakin picture on my blog. I'm tired of being caught in it. I suggest you don't wear it since it's old and has little balls all over it, but do something productive with it...turn it into a rag or a pair of panties or something fun. Then blog about it and make me happy that my shirt lives forever in other ways.



Now, roadkill doesn't just happen every day. Okay wait, it does, but you can't always be stopping and snapping shots I understand. SOO, the contest ends whenever I get the best picture PERIOD. Could be weeks, months, years...whatever. The longer it is, the longer I get to wear my ugly shirt.

Carolina said...

I have no words. Wait...I have a few.
That is SO WRONG on so many levels.

But...it wouldn't be you :)
and your uniqueness is (one) of the best things about you!!

what is wrong with us? why are we so obsessed with this kind of stuff? i should have KNOWN when i saw this picture on Amber's blog that it was YOU who took the picture. We really are sick... and sorry Amber... no intervention here.. i fully support my sister's (and my) crazy obsession with all things gore. It's so weird and mysterious and yucky.. i have to take it in... like a stinky fart of my own.

The Mama said...

So, I am in.. lol! I just love to read your blogs. You are absolutely hilarious!

I'm definitely in, I love looking at dead things too. And I agree about the car accident victims, that's one reason I love Grey's Anatomy so much, they're always showing really cool accident stuff on there. Even though it's fake, it totally looks real.

Have you ever seen those videos called "Faces of Death"? I haven't, but I've always wanted to.

Lindsay,
Yes, the person that I was on the phone with, that said, "OMG I got to take a picture of this, can I call you right back"....that was infact your sister!!! I'll have you know, that she got out of her car and got up close and personal with the dead deer!

I just hope that if I am ever on the side of the road with blood all over me because I've been in a serious accident, your sister doesn't just bring her camera and stand on the side line...hopefully she would try and save my life or something! But you know that her thoughts would be..."this would make a REALLY good blog"!

Gross. Who has photos of roadkill laying around? Seriously. Ewww.

Of course, though I'm loathe to admit it, if I happen upon roadkill in my daily travels, I'll probably pull over to take a picture.

Staci said...

I think it's funny how you guys love the gross stuff. I didn't follow the rules and sent you the most HORRIBLE email I had ever gotten anyway for kicks. DELETE IT as soon as you get it :).

This is absolutely hysterical. After reading this, I loaded the camera in the diaper bag. I hope I see something good. But, how can it get much better than a deer?

Bonnie said...

I love gross stuff (remember the wrestler... heehee), but honestly roadkill isn't gross. It's definitely weird that you blog about it, but if you want to gross people out... you need blood and guts not rigor mortis.

hmmmm....I don't remember a dead beaver at Restland when you were there. Now is the dead thing something you also get from me? I don't enjoy and lust after dead objects but I do like working at the funeral home. Anyway.

Well darnit! I DID just have a dead humongous grandpapa sized bird in my backyard yesterday courtesy of Bella, but didn't get a picture of it before Marc got it out of there before I puked! And YES...I was a little tiffed that he didn't wait for me to get the pic so I could blog about it.

The Nugen's said...

I read this post to my husband...he said "Oh do you still have that picture I sent you of the dead beaver???" Sorry honey, it died along with my Blackberry. So no flowery shirt for me!

Gross.

I'm remembering why I fell in love with you in the first place.
