If he or she was really bored, they'd have animated it.

I made dead fly art when I was working as a butcher in a supermarket when I was at uni. We use to play tennis with flies in the meat room using plastic meat trays as rackets. One day, we'd built up a decent pile of dead flies, so I put them in a meat tray, wrapped them up and stuck on a label that said "Flying Steak".

Unfortunately, I forgot about it, the store manager found it, and exploded with rage. The rant that ensued included a recommendation that I get sent for some sort of counselling.

Some people honestly have no sense of humour

Omigod that's so gross - and yet strangely appealing!
