PROJECT: Flood the Office…The Mystery of Pierre Pettigrew

The Harry Potter nerd in me giggled at this return address:

And since I like spoiling surprises for myself, I checked out the customs declaration:


  And yet somehow I wasn’t able to put two and two together to piece out what would actually be inside the box. Do your best Sherlock Holmes impression–what do YOU think was inside?  

00138tca 00139y1y Even though I KNOW it’s dead, part of me wanted to shriek when I saw what was inside. And then I was torn between just taking a picture of it in the box, or actually touching it to clean off the styrofoam bits and pieces in order to get a good picture. For the record, touching a dead stuffed mouse is actually pretty (for lack of a better word) icky. I’m actually a little surprised that I’m as squicked by this as I am–I suppose eventually I will come to terms with it. For now, I really can’t deal with it staring at me with its beady, dead eyes. The IMPORTANT thing, however, is that the apartment manager is growing increasingly suspicious!

      Just when I thought a dead stuffed mouse couldn’t get creepier…

      Promise not to tease me with him and I’ll still come over for Owl Science! night.

    sadly, i am only a pierre. he seemed a bit TEFL when i tried to communicate shipping, though.

      Yeah, that return address is a little weird. I don’t think they can deliver anything to ‘Swirly swirly swirly swirly swirly”

          I thought it was just that wacky Canadian mail service again. or maybe MUGGLES.

      I wondered if that was you, but it confused me as I thought you were in the UK! Is it just from a taxidermy place in canada?
      Thanks, Pete!

        i couldn’t find anything particularly good on UK ebay, really, and figured that with the cash saved from not shipping to the UK and back i could go large on the whiskers. 🙂

          I can’t believe you did that 🙂

          Thanks, Pete! I’m certain he will feature in many hilarious future practical jokes. 😀

          Did you get your Halloween card?

    Actually, those beady eyes probably really are beads! Yok yok!

    So did you glue his tail back on or what?

      No, I haven’t yet. I’m not quite sure what sort of glue would be best so I’ve opted to leave it for now. 😐
