YSaC, Vol. 615: D'oh! A deer, a bedazzled deer ...

2010 March 24

Deer Feet, gun/coat hanger, (be-dazzled.) - $50


This is a very unique piece, more for a young girls room. It has five deer feet that are used for hanging coats, but could also be used to set a gun on.The feet are painted to rezemble more of a zebra, and each hoof has rhinestones added to the tip. The backboard is black with speckled pink. Also forgot to mention there are five design handkerchiefs hanging from the hooves.Very unique piece, one of a kind, hope you like it!!

Because what young girl wouldn't love to have a coat/gun rack made out of five bedazzled deer feet?

Thanks, Samantha!

      Especially if you hollowed out the carcass to make a new swing seat. It would have the same "functional yet frightening" vibe this gives off.

          Isaac, there are a few smallish cities in Montana (I have family there and visited it regularly as a child). Urban Montana is probably at least somewhat equivalent to urban Vermont, if that helps as a point of reference.
          So, there's urban-ish Montana, rural Montana, and seriously undeveloped and unamenitied Montana (the latter being, while not always easy to get to (e.g., no roads, so must fly in) or friendly to humans, sometimes the most beautiful part).

    I want some of whatever these people took that made them think this was a good idea. Because unless they happened upon a deer with five feet, it would take more than one to make this glittering monstrosity. That implies some level of planning. I am now very curious as to what happened to the other three feet.
    I'm guessing at least one's a bong now.

    And what is with the handkerchiefs? Were these deer rival gang members?

        I think, and I might be wrong (been known to happen) that deer walk on their tippy-toes, like cats. The hoof is the cloven bit on the end (like a toenail) but the foot is the whole thing.

    This was the very rare, conjoined-twin deer of the upper Outer Wetlands Forrest. For years, this doe wandered with the herd, on her five feet, and was thought to bring a special good luck to anyone who happened to see her. Then one day, while running from hunters, she tripped over her own five feet. And the rest is history. Now pay the $50 and I'll be on my way.

      “more of a nightmare inducing abomination”

      For consideration:
      This was in someone's room (hence the handkerchiefs), where are they now?

      Just who went in that room, took a look, and said "Hey, I bet we can get $50 for this"?

      Someone made this item. They found/had-on-hand taxidermy deer foot forms, and carefully mounted the hide & hoof to those forms. Someone then bedazzled the hooves. All of these are volitional acts. Just what color is the sky in their world?

      Very frightening that, for someone, this might not be nightmare or abomination. But, that's ok, they probably would hire scantily-clad folks to liven up a funeral or two, after mounting the slightly-used stripper pole to the swing set.

          Then, every time my mom served dinner, he'd wait till we were eating and start talking about how beautiful it was right before the lady creamed it with her minivan. Yeah, my dad's kind of an ass.

    Here we see the hooves of a prime example of Odocoileus urbanicus sub. pentapodia, the Western Urban Five-Footed Deer. These are clearly recognizable by the species tendency to accent the hoof with small sparkling stones, a process known as "bedazzling" or "bling," which is believed to make them more attractive to young females. Males of the species are recognizable by their distinctive call, said to sound like "Ungulate life 4 evah!"

    The five-legged subspecies, of course, is even more clearly recognizable.

    My cousin's husband took up hunting, and he mounted a HUGE buck head RIGHT OVER THE FRONT DOOR. The three women of the home cried their eyes out as he did. But hey, it's also a gun rack. So yeah, it's hooves like this, AND a big pissed off dear face above it. Does look like he's giving you the Double Duece when you're leaving.

      Besides, if you own enough guns to fill a rack, the responsible thing to do at that point is buy a safe instead.

      [corey]Shed antlers (deer shed antlers after every rutting season) actually make better storage hooks, if only for the fact you can saw them to suit, and leftovers can be used for knife scales and the like. [/corey]

    I can't decide which is my fav - this hanger or the couch that someone died on (if you don't recall - http://www.yousuckatcraigslist.com/?p=3006, it's the second one down). I mean this one has a bedazzled carcass but the couch had a corpse stain/odour. We're really comparing apples to...a different kind of apples here lol. This piece is touted as art while the couch ad had no qualms about telling you it's morbid history/characteristics. On the other hand, the couch was still being sold for well more than it's worth (ie $0) and I think killing 1.25 deers (or maybe one deformed one..which would actually increase its value) was more than $50 in labour let alone the taxidermy costs. Hmmm...the rhinestones really make this special...maybe if the couch came with the dead aunt (bedazzled of course) then it would be a clear winner.....

    *climbing back in the chair after falling down laughing* sorry, but the words 'bedazzled dear' hit me without warning. anyway, dude's right here, this thing is VERY unique and hopefully, it's one of a kind as well. But what's with the handkerchiefs? Is my daughter supposed to clean her assault rifle with it? and does it have to be bedazzled too, because that would raise some unwanted attention in gay-dear-world. Actually it wouldn't be so unwanted, because it would not just save some nice flamboyant dears, but also protect us from more of those, err... things.

    My question ... why 5 feet? If each deer has 4 feet then were did the extra foot come from? Or is this one foot from each of 5 deer? Maybe two horribly mangled deer with missing feet? Or is this just one hanger from a potentially matching set?! Are there 3 more of these floating around, totaling 20 feet from 5 normal 4-footed deer? But then this couldn't really be called unique and one of a kind then, could it?
