Holy crap! That's some nightmare fuel right there. Some of them are funny, but the leopard is just scary.

Mate, you should have put this in Fun House because I can't stop laughing.

For a change, the comments are really good too.

I knew tanuki were known for huge testicles, but I didn't realize they were that hairy! (Those are its testicles, right?) One of the most disturbing taxidermy pieces I've ever seen was a tableau of guinea pigs having a soccer match.

That would be one of the tableaux by the infamous Walter Potter, who thought slaughtering hundreds of kittens, squirrels and guinea pigs and posing them like humans would make children happy. Enter his name in Google images and you'll find more of his works, all of which are very, very creepy.

The english language really needs a word meaning 'funny in a sad way'.
