Speaking of craigslist sporting goods listings, what's up with people asking real money for taxidermy items like fish mounts and deer heads? Typical local listing: eight-point whitetail buck mount - $175 USD.
I thought the idea of having a stuffed critter on the wall is that it's something you caught or shot, and you had it mounted so you can bask in the glory of your accomplishment. Who the hell wants a stuffed fish somebody else caught or a buck somebody else shot?
Now, I could see a bar or restaurant owner wanting to hang a few dead animals on the wall for atmosphere. I can also see that bar or restaurant owner wanting to pay $30 or so for the things. Not $175.
