Dead Dipteran…Art

Current job title:  Doggy Nurse.   Job description: administer antibiotics, probiotics, anti-inflamatories, pain-killers; use of peanut butter is non-optional.  Apply hot compresses.  Design clever “pens” to keep patient quiet and immobile using household objects.   Pick errant fur out of wounds.   Bring patient out several times a day for toiletting.  Remove frisbee from patient’s mouth; ignore sad, sad face.  Fret.   Lather, rinse, repeat. 

I am spending waaaaaaaay too much time looking at the three-legged one’s rear.  

Since I need to keep a close eye on her I’m spending most of the day downstairs and on the computer.   It is not productive computer time, because I’ve got one eye on the dog , and have to stop what I’m doing every 10 minutes to say “don’t lick” or “don’t rub your butt on the floor, stupid”.  So I’m surfing, chatting, and blogging. 

I came across this site, Muhr Photography, and the artist’s collection of what can only be described as Dead Dipteran Art:

My somewhat overtired brain isn’t sure if this stuff is actually funny.  Is this funny?  Help me out here.

    It’s funny. Funny in a way that one maybe shouldn’t be so proud of. Or feel comfortable with. But yeah, I laughed. Showed my husband. Then shared on Facebook. :^) Thanks for sharing.

    I have kind of an ‘off’ sense of humor. It makes for fantastic social interaction.

    I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!
    We had flies laying eggs in the airducts at the school so we’d find these dying flies… the grade 4 boys had fun keeping them in their eraser covers as “pets”…
    This is genius.

    Not only is it funny, I wish I would’ve thought of it!
