What, no mint jelly?
I agree. That’s baa-aa-aad.
I’m lamb-enting the fact that I ever saw this offal thing.
I think it should be sheeper.
Or at least offer free sheeping.
I disagree. If you pay $65 you are getting fleeced.
I know, getting part of the womb is quite the placentive!
Can’t help but think that the description is kind of cotyledon me on though – it’s really only a small portion of it. Still, after mulling it over, I’ve formalin-ed my opinion and it’s still a pretty good deal.
Why do Etsy sellers ram dead stuff down our throats?
The fetus is $65, the placenta throw in for free.
Well, part of the placenta. Though maybe he didn’t have rumen for the whole thing.
Sheerly, just for the fun of it. Mutton but wool gathering going on in their brains.
I lamb-ent that they named it
so you’re offering up a sheep fetus and placenta and the reassurance is that you did kill it? I don’t think that is the worry here.
Someone must have killed him…you know, when they killed his mom. But whose first thought upon finding a surprise in their dissection specimen is, “Etsy!”
Maybe he just found her dead as well. What else cud he do?
The seller didn’t kill it! He just died for some reason when they cut open the placenta.
Yeah, if you think you can embalm a ewe and find a live fetus, then uterine for a surprise.
And now I’m having a flashback to my college biology class, where we had to dissect a rat. It wasn’t till i cut her open that I realized she was pregnant, and the chloriform hadn’t killed the fetuses (feti?)
The instructor drown them while I was busy throwing up my last three days meals in the restroom.
That would look lovely on my mantle.
Well now, “super cool sheep fetus” is not something you hear every day.
I don’t even have anything clever to say about this. It just makes me clench.
We used to just call them “pickles.”
“We met while I was dissecting a pregnant sheep’s placenta” doesn’t actually answer any of my questions. It just adds several new ones.
Like why the fuck the seller named it?
If only it was in a mason jar.
And embellished with some mint jelly green glitter antlers!
Oh yes, an recycled, vintage jar complete with a lid that has a “charming patina” (lots of rust for newbies).
This is obviously an amateur seller. A true professional would display a dead fetus on old barn wood.
Little Bo Peep is going to be so pissed.
and little boy blew…chunks
We need to View It In A Room. [Or a pasture?]
View it in a womb.
Lately I’ve been seeing Dungeons & Dragons monsters everywhere I look.
“Don’t worry, I didn’t kill Burton – he was dead when we met!”
I think this is the first time that an excerpt from a court transcript has been used as an advertising pitch.
This sounds like exerts from a lost scene from Silence of the Lambs “Why no Clarice, I didn’t kill Burton – he was dead when we met”
“And now I’m going to eat his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti.”
From the shop announcement: “I’ve got some cool things in the works, so check back often!” Never has the phrase “in the works” sounded so terrifying.
Coming soon a new Etsy Collection from the estate of Shari Lewis
I don’t believe there will be any Ivy eating from this Little Lamb.
The perfect centerpiece for my next Veal Omelette Right to Life Breakfast
I admit it’d have been better if it wasn’t given a name, but hey, just another day which called for a NSFS post. (S is for sanity.)
Hidden due to low comment rating. Click here to see.
I’d like to submit the item which is the natural consequence of the featured one.
When you dissect a dead sheep, the natural consequence is a knitted skull shape? I must be missing some cultural reference here.
I saw vomit. Interesting rorschach test.
Is it wrong that I thoght of Tim Burton right away?
This little lamb of mine
I’m gonna soak in brine….
She’s also got a ferret penis for sale: http://www.etsy.com/listing/110804333/ferret-penis-baculum-wet-specimen
I’m going to need $20.
And a deformed fetal pig! The description is priceless.
“Noggin doesn’t have any eyes, but blind animals ‘see with their heart’. Won’t you please consider adopting this poor little headless pig and loving him forever?”
You know what, I think I’m actually starting to like this seller.
I must have watched too many episodes of the show “Oddities”. This fetal sheep is actually kind of cute. I wouldn’t buy the placenta though, that’s a whole bunch of WTF right there.. I really don’t want to buy something like this on etsy though because the transport would be a nightmare. Don’t think you can ship things in formaldehyde via post anyway.
Nope, not cute. It’s probably a zombie. I saw Black Sheep. (The sheep zombie movie.) I know how it all starts: with a preserved zombie sheep fetus.
WTF does this seller do for a living outside of the etsy gig???
She seems to be really into the “wet” thing. I’m beginning to wonder if the specimens are wet, or if she is!
And the rooty tooty fresh and fruit I just wolfed down apparently comes back up just as fruity, not as fresh when staring at a lamb fetus.
Godddddddd damnnnnnnnnnnn ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwweeeeeeeeeeeee
oh, I just LOVE this screenname.
*sigh* I would have totally bought this if little Burton was laying on some barn wood.
I saw the thumbnail on Facebook and thought, “There’s no way the big picture could be even more vomit-inducing because I’m already throwing up in my mouth a little.”
I was wrong.
*sets plate of macaroni quietly to the side*
You would think by now I would know better than to check regretsy while eating lunch!
Mary had a little lamb… She put it in a fcuking jar!
And everywhere that Mary went… Awww… Fcuk it…
“Just don’t place it somewhere that it can be accessed by live animals or small children because the lid is NOT childproof and may come off if it is knocked over.”
Yeah, I’m thinking I’d be keeping that away from my small children, but not because of the lid.
This listing explains (a little) why she sells weird shit.
Gotta say, it’s brave of her to admit to it…
But she never actually admits to an addiction, just tries to sound like she knows all about them.
Those are a LOT of pills.
and of course, she’s from Ohio. sheesh…. or sheep?
And is looking off away from the camera in her profile shot. So etsy-esque
Turns out a sheep placenta looks a lot like one of those steamed dumplings you get at Chinese food places.
but Dim Sum is actually yummy, sheep placenta, not so much.
Can’t have a kid but still batshit insane enough to want to make a placenta print!
I have good news for you.
That exclamation point was supposed to be a question mark. I have no idea what came over me.
“We met while I was dissecting a pregnant sheep’s placenta”
Who hasen’t ?
I met my fetal lamb on eHarmony.
Well, it is a Christian dating service Lambs are popular there.
Thought #1: The amateur scientist in me is fascinated and examining this carefully.
Thought #2: It would take quite a few shots of Strega and/or good Icelandic vodka to get that down….
I regretsy browsing here while eating.
I found myself holding my breath looking at this so I couldn’t smell it.
I don’t understand, is it legal to sell stuff like that? And what about shipping dead animals and/ or animal parts, is that even allowed? I was quite shocked to find that she’s had 116 sales, including this erhm, well yea I don’t know: http://www.etsy.com/transaction/86350378
“We met while I was dissecting a pregnant sheep’s placenta”
So they met cute then! Just like a romantic comedy.
Yay! I found this for us FJL’s!!
Ewww. Just Ewww!
At first I was grossed out. And then she started calling it Burton and I was like “Awww, how cute, I want it!” What the fuck is wrong with me?
I wonder if the EPA might be interested in this
biohazards floating around in the us postal system….condoned by etsy….how wonderful
We’ve seen some gross shit here, but this one actually made me heave.
I’m not sure I want to know anything more about someone who performs a dissection and thinks, “man, there is a MARKET for this!!”
Why is everyone referring to this seller as ‘she’ and ‘her’?
I’m pretty sure the seller is a dude. His hairy masculine tattooed hand is visible in some of his photos.
The seller identifies herself as a female on her profile http://www.etsy.com/people/KiloDog?ref=owner_profile_leftnav and refers to herself as a female in some of the listings (see Dingleberry the shark fetus…I can’t believe I just typed that)
I hope that poor dog in the avatar pic ran the fuck away before it became another “science project”!
oh good… he’s open to trades….
What puzzles the heck out of me is her assertion in more than one listing that she dissected a sheep placenta to retrieve the fetus inside. Unless sheep are markedly different from most other mammals, the fetus and the placenta are discrete structures linked by the umbilical cord. The fetus is contained in the amniotic sac and normally lies between the placenta and the cervix.
I’ve transcribed hundreds of (human) obstetric ultrasounds and it would be mortifying to discover that I have it all wrong.
Time for haggis?
Christ Almighty – the seller has tons of that stuff.
My personal favorite is for Dingleberry the shark fetus http://www.etsy.com/listing/107063580/shark-fetus-with-yolk-sac-attached-wet I would buy this item if it came with a plaque engraved with the seller’s words: “so I cut into it and…HOLY CRAP! SHARK FETUSES!!! I thought I was the luckiest girl in the world! “
Dingleberry the Shark Fetus is going on my list of Great Names for My Future Band.
Sweet Jesus this is awful. Shouldn’t that kind of crap be illegal? Or… Something to make it stop??
What does it say about me that I think this is adorable.
I DID NOT NEED TO SEE THIS TODAY
Are we really so far gone that we are naming our dead sheep fetuses?
Eh, I don’t think it’s that weird. All the lab dissections I’ve ever done, the specimens always get named.
What’s bothering me most about this shop is the “lamprey eel.” LAMPREYS ARE NOT EELS! EELS ARE FISH! LAMPREYS ARE NOT!
“Recipe for lamb stew included.”
