If you watch one local cable television taxidermy commercial today, let it be this one.

Well, I have a new catchphrase…
Chuck Testa does not taxidermize pets.
That rhino was my pet.
Oh, but . . . MGS? It’s okay. They’re just sleeping.
I swear I shot this uhh… coyote on a huntin’ trip in Montana three years back.
Also, I went to college around the corner from Ojai, so this commercial makes complete sense to me.
There are no dead animals in or near Ojai.
I wish there was a leopard sitting out on an Impala on my deck.
Erica! Thanks to you, I’m thinking about cats again.
Sheila, it’s like the animals are dreaming about immortality. So beautiful.
Shelia, I want to open a retirement home for elderly cats. Lord knows I won’t be getting married and having babies anytime soon, so I dream of my home for wayward cats instead.
M. G. S.: Damn.
Sheila? Are you joking? Ojai is 50% redneck. The other 50% is largely composed of celebrities and people who believe rocks have special powers –yes, there is some overlap there. (Went to undergrad the same place as Andrew, lived in Ojai for ~2yrs after.)
Shows you how much I know, Rich! I only lived in California intermittently for the better part of a year, and that in the vast desert east of San Diego. I thought Ojai was all the Beautiful People!
Also, I’m 50% redneck myself, although rednecks don’t always recognize me as such. But the cool rednecks do.
Sheila, I think Rich was referring to your comment about there being no dead animals.
Oh, yeah, Deron! I completely got that!
I was trying to mock myself for my ignorance of the Ojai dead animal/redneck quotient!
I think Rich just has a hard time with written sarcasm.
It might be that I have a hard time with my own attempted jests.
I can’t tell you how often I misunderstood a message from Rich because I couldn’t read the sarcasm. It’s good to know it works on the other side of the fence occasionally.
Maybe he was taxidermied?
Some of you choose to watch Jian Sword Dancing incessantly; I watch Chuck Testa multiple times in a week.
