The Symbol of Australia...

In my local post office there are these, well, strange, weird-arse postcards. It looks like a kangaroo and wedge-tail eagle, but upon closer inspection the kangaroo is dead. Roadkill in fact. And the eagle -? It's feeding on the carcass.

I'm dying to send these to people, so anyone interested? 'Cause really, there's no point in sending roadkill postcards to other Australians (unless any Australians so wish to see this)

I'd also love to put incredibly weird quotes on the back - say, something from Syliva Plath or TS Eliot - or quotes from movies and televsion shows that are no way related to the picture. Just so I can imagine the looks on the poor postal workers faces ('cause they'd read 'em. That's the whole point of postcards! It's legalised voyerism at it's best!)

For those not interested in dead animals, they do have lovely postcards of native flora. I could send you one of those instead.

So if you're interested (or if you have a friend who you think would get a kick getting artful pictures of Australian road-kill) just throw up your hand. I'll grab your address off you once I've grabbed the postcards.

Well, being an animal lover extraordinaire, I'm not sure the roadkill ones would be for me...

But the native flora! That's the ticket. :-)

The roadkill is fairly tame - well, all limbs are still attached - but it's still odd.

I'll track down a nice flora one (or a live animal :g:) and write something profound on the back. Or my shopping list. Either or.

I *love* getting postcards, although I have to admit that I would prefer flora to roadkill. ;-) I'll send you one, too, but I can't promise that I can find one that is quite that weird. ;-)

You and me both! Not into roadkill. But pretty flora, definitely! Or weird flora. But no animal eating flora! ; )

::wondering if the Venus Flytrap is native to Australia::

I'll send you one, too, but I can't promise that I can find one that is quite that weird.

Yay, postcard! :-) I shall have to find something for you, though the postcard stock around here leans towards the Gettysburg, the Amish, and such like, and not towards the weird... Hmmm...

:-))) I also like touristy postcards. :-) My address is here; the entry is only visible for you and Erika, so you can safely leave yours in a comment if you want to. :-)

I'll send you a flora one :g: What sort of abstract quote on the back would you like? A few lines from an Australian song, or from a poem?

A few lines from an Australian song would be interesting, thank you :-) Here is my address. :-)
In case I can't find something weird, would you like a naked man postcard instead? (I can put it in an envelope if you don't want to shock your postman that way ;-) )

Oh, go on, send me a weird-arse roadkill one. :-D

:g: Why am I not surprised??

Roadkill postcards...am strangely intrigued. If you sent me one, I'd definitely try to dig up something bizarrely Canadian to send back :-P

I can't fathom why someone thought putting a dead kangaroo being eaten by a bird would make a great postcard to send people. It's a mystery.

I'll grab 'em on Wednesday. And I shall try to imagine postal workers all over the world pondering these pictures.
