And y’all know what D.O.R. stands for, roight? (Note: don’t read this if you are squeamish about dead aminals. No pics though.)

I will guess that y’all are sick and tired of hearing about Server Hell, and as much as I want to get this dern blahg moved to somewhere besides a subdirectory on Mouse Nest, I DO NOT HAVE TIME RIGHT NOW! (Purehost, areya readin’?) So I will write about something else. I read it in the Planet Ann Arbor Snooze. I can’t find the article right now and that’s typical for the mlive site, which makes me enter my zip code, birth year (it’s called “date not needed”, okay?), and gender every time I want to find something on it. And that makes me so tired, I don’t even want to begin to navigate the site and then I usually can’t find what I want. Unless it’s absolutely earth-shaking news like “Shaky Jake Dies” or something. (Jake, we loved you. Rest in peace.)

Anyway, the gist of the article was that the county (or whatever) is no longer removing deer carcasses from the sides of the local roads. They are moving them *off* the road. It’d be a hazard not to. But they are then just left to bloat and rot and do what aminal carcasses do. The explanation was complicated but it involved funding and contractors and the fact that the deer were all previously dumped into a mass grave and that raised various environmental concerns. Like I said, I don’t have the patience to can’t find the article. Google it if you want.

So, some woman was complaining about having to look at decomposing deer carcasses on her way to work or Meijer or Costco or wherever. When I first read it, I was thinking something like, “yeah, “they” should be removing those deer carcasses. What a horrible thing to look at.” Then I started thinking… (Yes, that’s always dangereuse.) Why NOT leave dead deer by the side of the road? MAYBE, just MAYBE, if somebody is flying down the road going twenty mph over the speed limit, fiddling with the radio sound system and eating an Egg McMuffin with their cell phone plastered to their ear, and they see a DEAD DEER (!!!), they MIGHT JUST SLOW DOWN? Maybe? Doya think?

I dunno. What DO you think?

Y’all are lucky I didn’t post a picture of the burn I have on my hand from last week when I dropped the lasagne as I was getting it out of the oven. Not pretty. Neither was the lasagne. But the oven got cleaned! 😉
