Taxidermy Crossing

Just a visual non sequitur, or is there a specific joke I’m missing?


  1. I figured it was a roadkill reference.

  2. I think the idea is supposed to be that this guy’s silhouette looks roughly somehow something like the one used on your standard Deer Xing sign (as long as he’s carrying that deer’s head). Why the cartoonist didn’t put such a silhouette on the sign is a mystery to me – apart from the fact that it wouldn’t leave much room to write “taxidermy x-ing”.

  3. I think this one is mostly just the visual joke. Nothing further than funny expecting one thing, but seeing something slightly different and the sign giving a fairly reasonable explanation for it. Maybe you should start a “Is that all there is?” section or something.
