How to explain taxidermy to your kids

On Saturday, the family went to Cracker Barrel after we saw the Wiggles in Chicago.  After we were seated, the kids started asking about the "reindeer" on the wall. 

Comments like this came to mind:

  • Kids, that's just a floating head....
  • Well, first you shoot the deer.....
  • Damn it.
We settled on this: the front of the deer is in here.  The back of the deer is in the kitchen.

It worked great until Keira wanted to go to the kitchen to see the back of the deer.

Damn it.
