@howdy…not lamebook worthy???? she’s leaving posts about her brother in law who has just been murdered or committed suicide, either way he has abruptly died and then a little while later she’s asking for Farmville Eggs….kind of weird.
My cat died a couple months ago and I didn’t play farmville for like 2 weeks after that out of grief. Its just a bit weird. “My brother in law died…can I have some Eggs?”
I created an account JUST so I could comment on the hanging deer picture.
Really? What’s so bad about the picture? When we were kids, my dad would come home from hunting, and we’d all take a picture with the head of the deer that he killed. Ususally, he would have it hanging under the carport while he was getting ready to cut the meat. I see nothing wrong with this picture.
@else9874: Oh she meant farmville eggs? Wow. I just thought she wanted real eggs, which is still weird but I didn’t think as much of it. Yeah i guess its lamebook worthy, just seemed kind of harsh at first.
@els9874, I assumed she was talking about REAL eggs, she mentioned not knowing what they were going to do for Easter. Saturday night, probably the night before Easter, and now it’s late and she needs Eggs for the kids to find? That’s what I got from it anyway.
Yeah I agree with youDONTsay. Everyone’s saying ‘oh that poor kid’…why? Because he is near a dead animal? Oh boy….It really isn’t a big deal and I think the parents just thought it was a funny sight to see their kid swinging next to it, which is why they took a picture..
i think the last one is weird because who puts that on facebook? do their friends enjoy seeing pictures of dead hanging deer? i’m not a fan of sport hunting but if you’re gonna eat what you kill, then i’m ok with that but i don’t need to see the pictures. i prefer thinking that the meat at the grocery store just magically appears.
Uh sorry weirdos, there’s nothing cool about an animal carcass hanging from your child’s swing set. Not classy.
People who take pictures of their kids with deer heads are CREEPS. If you want to hunt animals, whatever, do your thing. It’s probably a lot better for you even though people are polluting our rivers and streams that the deer are drinking out of by dumping oil in storm drains but nonetheless…if my dad had a dead bleeding animal hanging from my swing set I would have nightmares for weeks.
It’s not cute. Might as well set your daughter up on the side of the road next to a dead possum with it’s eyes bulging out, snap a picture and post it on Facebook. I wonder if this family tagged Bambi in the photo. Nobody thinks children should be given a chance to be children for at least the first 5 years?
Seriously, “littlelolita,” people who use the word “classy” rarely are.
Also, there’s nothing wrong with a child being around dead animals. Guess what?! When cavemen killed animals, their children saw the carcasses. You’re a gigantic fucking dumb ass if a deer being hung in the backyard to be cleaned gives you nightmares. Like someone else mentioned earlier, meat doesn’t just pop into existence. Someone actually has to kill the animal, clean it, process it, and package it. Get over yourself and grow a set.
That last picture… why are we posing the child with the carcass? Take a picture of your kid on the swing? Sure. Photograph the kill for posterity’s sake. Cool. String it up on the swingset since it seems to be a good height? Right on (if you’re gonna get to the cleaning there though, do be careful – probably don’t want the kids splashing around in blood puddles). They lose me at the combining the child and the deer. Plus, kid kind of looks like they don’t want to be there.
I have no problem with kids knowing where meat comes from, or seeing dead animals if someone in the family does hunt. That’s life. But my two year old? No. He still thinks that eggs come from eggboxes, he is not old enough to understand life and death so I’m not going to let him anywhere near a dripping carcass that will terrify him for weeks!
I feel like shit now, for laughing hard at the first two.
Okay, it’s VERY sad that Tyler’s dog/Heather’s brother in law died, it’s just the abruptness of the other comments that made me laugh. I guess it’s only funny because I don’t know them. Sheri’s an absolute bitch, and I’d probably attack her even worse if I knew those guys.
STOP JUDGING ME :’(
Last pic is fucked up. I’m pretty sure I’ve been in that garden and all.
Also @Janie, cavemen did a lot of shit we don’t do anymore. Lived in caves is one thing that springs to mind.
I’m not sure where I stand on the whole children seeing dead animals issue, because I don’t have kids. However, I do think it’s pretty sad when a 16 year old girl doesn’t know that chicken the food comes from chicken the animal.
Still, I just don’t understand people who think it’s appropriate to put pictures of dead animals on facebook. An acquaintance of mine had a profile picture for a while showing him pointing and laughing at a kangaroo that was killed by a car. Is that supposed to be funny? Another acquaintance has the head of a dead rabbit as her profile picture. WTF?
Sherry is an asshole…the pic with the kid….well. I have mixed feelings. I don’t see anything wrong with hunting, hunting pics etc. I would find the pic a lot worse if they were making some king of disgusting gesture toward the dead animal. Looks like these people were just bleeding it and getting it taken care of, no obscenities. That the kid was there….who cares? Kid doesn’t know what he’s looking at anyway and will never remember at that age.
“When cavemen killed animals, their children saw the carcasses.”
Lol at the tired old rhetoric: “It’s natural!” They also were lucky to hit 20 years of age. Why don’t you ook-ook back to your cave and work on a fire for tonight’s dinner. Oh, right, you aren’t a caveman, and neither are any of the other countless others who conveniently uses our evolutionary ancestry to justify things that are completely out of context.
I have to agree with #48; I don’t see anything disrespectful toward the animal. Distasteful? Absolutely, from my perspective. Especially putting it on Facebook. But eh, based on just the photo, I don’t see any harm done. Just a culture that is foreign to me.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with dead carcasses. As a meat lover and one that only eats organic meat, a dead animal is quite natural to me. But guess what, you’re a gigantic fucking dumb ass when you use “the cavemen used to” as an argument! Children under 5 rarely have a concept of death so it is a fucking big deal to hang a lifeless Bambi from your child’s swing set and sharing it with the world on Facebook. Get over yourself and open a book once in a while…
The idiocy of some people…
damn people…there is nothing wrong with a kid being around a dead deer. Alot of hunters love to have their kids out when they are skinnin a deer. I learned at a very young age how to both field dress(cut out all guts) and skin(remove the skin and cut into different cuts of meat). Seriously, if that grosses you out than thing where that steak that is sitting on your plate comes from…or even that delightful hotdog you might be eating. Getting the food we love might not be the prettiest sight you have seen, but it is quite rewarding to bag your first kill.
@KarlaEU: Your argument is really just as bad as Janie’s. It does not follow that “it is a big deal” just because children under five rarely have any concept of death. I believe it’s good parenting to help your children understand death. They are most likely going to become aware of it on their own anyways.
@lcatfish – I noticed that. It’s supposed to be hung upside down. I always remember that pool of blood under their mouths. Sorry for the visual. That kid has seen deer like that a few times by now, I imagine. And BTW, I’m not at all a redneck – just happen to have friends who hunt. I agree that the pic isn’t very interesting, or lame.
@36 and @37…If I were a child, yes that would give me nightmares. You two obviously don’t have children. I have a 2 year old, I know for a fact that seeing a dead Bambi would terrify her. I don’t think it’s healthy parenting to expose a child that young to death. People can do what they do, it offends me when children are involved and I don’t agree with what their doing. Yah. And trust me, I’m a lot classier then hanging dead animals on my daughters swing-set while she plays on it.
@62 – I don’t care if they’re African American, it’s still redneck culture to take pictures of your babies with dead animals.
Defend it all you want, a child that young doesn’t need to be watching SAW IV or witnessing Bambi hanging from their swing set being sliced open and drained of all it’s blood. It’s bad parenting. Considering our children act on what they see, and aren’t rational at this age what’s to stop little Jr. from stabbing the dog because he saw daddy doing it. You can’t explain the circle of life to a two year old.
@littlelolita, The child in the picture doesn’t seem too bothered by it. And not every kid sees a deer as “Bambi”. And they aren’t “exposing a child to death” quite like you put it. It’s not like they have the family dog hanging from the tree. Dogs/cats/horses things of that nature are pets. Deer, elk, moose, and such are MEAT, FOOD. There is a difference, and if the child grows up exposed to that way of life, then they will not have nightmares and not think “Oh I’m gonna kill the dog”.
I guess everyone comes from all different walks of life. But, when a world disaster happens and you can’t just go and get meat from the grocery store anymore, I guess me and my family will have the skills to not go hungry. And we wont be having nightmares about our food, either. lol.
Being a “townie” now living on a farm, I know where you’re coming from – my mother hates the thought of us eating our own sheep, yet she eats meat (and roasts we take up to her when we visit)
However, I also HAVE two bright boys, who both saw deer, sheep, and cows, hung, gutted, and cut up. As soon as they were old enough to toddle, they were nosy enough to go out to the old mac tree and have a look at what dad was doing (he’s a butcher by trade).
I encouraged it because they need to know where their food comes from. I always sat with them and explained what was happening – even though the first time I saw it, I could hardly watch.
Also, side benefit – one of them might be brainy enough to be a surgeon. Think of it as an apprenticeship. BTW: the four-year-old now asks what we are eating – cow or sheep or deer or pig. And yes, concept of death doesn’t sink in, but the concept of food has.
Yeah, the juxtaposition of the swing and the deer is not that cool, but maybe that’s what was lamebook about it. Our meat hooks hang from the same branch as the kid’s swings, but different ends. Never taken a photo though, guess I wasn’t original enough?
