Dead Mouse + Computer Mouse = Mouse Mouse

Okay... this just grosses me out.

Um... what?Um... what?


Yep.  That's a dead mouse with holes cut in it to make it into a computer mouse.  And while it freaks me out, I have to applaud the ingenuity behind creating this little bugger.

Essentially, this is a real mouse wrapped around a travel sized computer mouse.  It requires some taxidermy skills and a great deal of fortitude to make one of these.  When I encountered the phrases "...run the cable through the tail hole" and "...if you've got an albino (wetware) mouse, its skin ''might'' be clear enough for your optical mouse to work directly through the dry skin," I sort'a tuned out.

I was eating lasagna at the time.  It became somewhat unappealing...


Though taxidermy is not my thing, I do find this to be quite creative in a twisted way.  It takes skill to do something like this, and there's probably a market for it.  I don't know that I would buy it, simply due to the creepy factor, but there are those out there who would.

I just can't get past how it would feel in my palm...  Ewwww.

Here it is in action:

While the concept is fun,

While the concept is fun, the execution is not. Not with a real dead mouse. I'd rather have a cutsey fake one or somethigng that had mouse like features. Not... a... dead mouse.

Mouse Mouse

It's not gross at all. You simply eat your lunch, and wrap the computer mouse with the packaging in which your lunch recently arrived. No fuss, no muss (or mouse).

AGREED. I can't get over the "small dead cute animal" part. I admit that it's very creative, but it looks way too much like my hamster for me to not be a bit sad.
