The Symbol of Australia...
Streetwalker From Cycnus

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.
