That’s actually pretty sedate compared to the bizarre taxidermy I once saw in a store in Dachau.

My father saw Dachau 3 weeks after liberation.

A poorly educated speed reader like myself would think the last word in that title was ‘Pancakes’.

I like the “killing rats” part so much that I give the artist a free pass for desecrating the remains of said rats.

Approved!
