Your Monday Afternoon Ugly

Today, I offer you something of an antidote to yesterday's Sunday Morning Cute:

A preserved alligator head, Think Tank Boss's souvenir from New Orleans (I did ask for something bizarre, grotesque, and/or reflective of the local culture), which now sits atop my office printer:

Unlike Hobart, I don't think this creature has anything much to say, since the (ahem) preservationists had to cut out her tongue to keep her looking so fresh-as-a-daisy mean and spiteful.

If she could, she'd probably say something along the lines of: "You'd better be damned glad I'm dead."
