What to do?


I have a serious dilemma. Nathan and I are moving in to "new" offices this week so I am spending most of the day transferring my stuff. I am carefully choosing where to put my various mounts and have come up against a challenge. My favorite mount is a deer butt. Yes, that's right, a deer butt. You can see me with my deer butt in the above picture (sorry about the light quality). It's a beauty for sure.

Some have ridiculed my deer butt. My wife doesn't like the butt. She thinks it makes me look like a redneck. My response is- I sort of am a redneck...in a Yankee kind of way. So what? We have Nathan and Brian on staff to offset...well...we have Nathan on staff to offset my lack of polish and decorum, so I should just be myself, don't you think?

The deer butt must stay. Now, where to put it?

A true redneck would try to install and use it as a doorbell. Then again, you might have Brian coming down to your office more than you'd like.

Don’t let those sissy, girly-girls put the diss on you! Don’t turn your back to your butt…. Face your rights! Let’s face it, (get it? Face it? HA HA that's some raw, rear humor) you are holding a darn fine butt!

You might be a redneck if you have a deer butt that you acquired as a white elephant gift and it is displayed more prominently than your 10-pointer!

Nuthin' wrong with bein' a redneck anyhow! In answer to your dilemma, I think a spot directly behind you on the wall would be perfect, or on the wall that you share with Nathan, then he can have one of his mounts on the other side! See, problem solved!

I was thinking of a bottle opener in just the right spot.

Better in your office than in our home...though I pity the people who will have to endure looking at it!

Shari,
It's a man-law violation to publicly allow one's wife to diss him concerning matters of deer mounts and such. But since it's almost our 15th anniversary (tomorrow), I'll go ahead and post your decent here.
Your Loving Husband,
Tony

Shari, if you think about it, the lovely new wall color will certainly distract from the body parts, don't you think ?

Are you freaking kidding me. You having a deer butt is more outlandish than me having my "Jack Black" (AKA jack rabbit with Blackbuck antelope horns)mount. If it doesn't go right behind your desk where everyone who meets with you gets to look at it the entire time, I think it should go in the office bathroom above the throne!

Put the deer butt on the back of you car and the deer head on the front of your car. Then install pistols where the door handles are so that you pull the trigger to open the door. Then put a gun rack in the back window. Don't forget to put an American flag (or a Rebel flag) some where on the car, maybe attach a giant one to your antennae.

Perhaps if Redeemer had an Arminian Wall of Shame would be a good place. Pelagius, Jacobus Arminius, Hugo Grotius, The Remonstrants, John Wesley, Deer Butt, after all their theology is Bass Ackwards.

I just returned from a men's retreat (Colonial Presby) to Colorado to go mountain hiking. This year we did Uncompahgre ( a fourteener). I met their new pastor and he is as crazy an outdoorsman as you are. He must hunt everything from bear to deer to turkey. With bow and rifle. And tops it off with fishing. He says he is at heart an redneck. Yeah I know he is from the mainstream denomination but you two got to meet each other. Ya got to be brothers. Your deer but would undoubtably just make him laugh.
