Will Dead Cats Be The New Predator Drones?

"A Dutch artist has turned his dead cat Orville, named after the famous aviator Orville Wright, into a helicopter – dubbed the Orvillecopter. Bart Jansen had Orville stuffed after he was hit by a car before enlisting the help of radio control helicopter flier Arjen Beltman to build the unique pet/machine. The Orvillecopter – 'half cat, half machine' – is now on show at the Kunstrai art festival in Amsterdam, the Dutch capital."
Uh, okay.

Balk, it's Monday. I'm not even close to being ready for this.

Has Choire hurled himself to the floor in an utter rage that he didn't think to do this with Cat? Because if he hasn't, I'll take care of it for him.

Now imagine this with bears.

How many innocent civilian birds will the predator-cats take down? How long will we as a nation let Obama get away with it?

Dead cat art is the lowest. Patrons of Mona's circa 1993 will recall the gallery on B that displayed a decaying cat for what seemed like a whole year. For shame.

Half cat. Half machine. All 'copter.

I wonder how many years the dude looked at his cat and saw a link-baiting future art project.

This is the kind of story that makes me want to make a helicopter out of a dead artist.

I hope this guy is either already partnered or happily single, because if he does this to his cat…
