Odd Pueblo: Snappy or crappy?

A new Odd Pueblo feature asks the audience to rate a trend, topic or sighting of something around town: is it snappy or crappy?

First up is one of my favorites: a stuffed javelina. Snappy or crappy?
I think it’s snappy

Javelina/Ryn Gargulinski

Javelina/Ryn Gargulinski

What do you think?
Please respond with:
a. Snappy
b. Crappy
c. It’s cruel and unusual punishment to stuff animal heads, even if they’re dead, and I won’t even go into someone’s house if they have a bear rug.
d. Moose heads are better because you can hang hats from them.
e. I don’t care because all I do all day is watch TV.

    See, this is why we need to add a poll question plug-in.
    Before I tell you if it’s snappy or crappy, tell me where is this javelina? And why are its teeth and nose orange?

    • Rynski says:

      I agree – a poll question plug-in would rock, especially when I have MANY MORE thought provoking questions up my sleeve.

      See the answers to your other inquiries below.

    Good Lord, that thing is awful! I’m not a fan of mounting any kind of head…argh.

    I’m between ‘b’ and ‘c’. I’m not going to judge people who hunt, I could just never do it myself.

    • RADC MAXIMUS says:

      I’m with you az. If forced to choose, I believe that I would prefer the a$$ end of this thing to that monstrosity! Good Lord…

      • azmouse says:

        lol…..it is pretty horrific. I prefer my critters frolicking happily in their natural habitat.

    b. Crappy

  5. azmouse says:

    So far, it’s looking crappy…..

  6. RADC MAXIMUS says:

    Hey Rynski, is this from the Bum Steer? Looks familiar…

  7. Rynski says:

    I cannot disclose the javelina’s wherabouts, but I can say RAD MAX is on the right track.

    I also cannot explain why its snout and teeth are orange, except to hypothesize he may have gotten into a case of orange Kool Aid mix.

    As for his crappiness, sometimes things cross the line when they become garish enough to become cool again. Or at least that’s how I explain my wardrobe (haha).

    I’m still voting SNAPPY.

    • azmouse says:

      I agree, Ryn, that garish can become cool, especially with fashion. Hair and fashion, I’m pretty much anything goes.

      But that head…tacky is tacky.

  8. RADC MAXIMUS says:

    “As for his crappiness, sometimes things cross the line” Well said Rynski, this puppy has crossed over into putrification. 🙂

  9. hollis says:

    It is not ‘snappy’ to cut off some poor creature’s head and hang it on a wall. It’s, trashy, nasty and laden with misused testosterone.

  10. Charlie says:

    I don’t think it is either. It is just plain UGLY!

  11. Leftfield says:

    It’s definitely crappy, but at the same time, nothing other than a dead scorpion in a plastic paperweight is more “Tucsony”.

  12. RADC MAXIMUS says:

    LOL- Lefty, you want to start the ‘bidding’ on this abomination? I remember this thing at the bum steer, ALWAYS got a few comments. It was ugly then, and uglier now.
