For The Person Who Has Everything (Like, Literally Everything Else): The Taxidermied Mice Chess Set

Did somebody request extra buggy eyes for the white pieces?

This is the $450 made-to-order taxidermied mice chess set available from Etsy seller TheCurious13. Do they start killing the mice after you pay? I don't want to know. Or when and how I'll die, although I suspect the answers are "soon" and "doing something I promised my mom I wouldn't."

This delightfully deceased taxidermy chess set is sure to get peoples attention. Every mouse was a unique creature in life, making each piece of this set a one of kind creation. Hand stuffed by me, but created by the guy upstairs (or whoever you believe created mice).


The set includes 16 light colored mice and 16 dark mice, in various sizes, pawns being the smallest. Set comes complete with wooden hand painted chess board, and storage case (not pictured)

All specimens were acquired from a captive breeding facility that distributes frozen rodents for reptile feeding, so don't feel sad if these little guys were not battling it out on the chess board they would be deep in the belly of a snake.

I know some people are into stuff like this, but those people are weird. There's not a single person who needs a taxidermied mice chess set. And I'm not just saying that hoping nobody will buy this one and I'll be able to pick it up for under $100 in a year, but I'm a thrifty shopper. Guess how much I paid for these pants. "What pants?" Exactly. I am the thrift king!

Keep going for some closeups of the pieces in case you're not sure how creepy they are.

Thanks to Lucas, who agrees anybody this desperate for a conversation piece should probably invest in The Most Interesting Man In The World's web seminars instead.

    This may very well be the easiest way in the world to freak a woman out.

    This'll go nice with my taxidermied King Cobra Checkers set.

    I love it. It looks like something that Steve Carrell's character in "Dinner for Schmucks" would make. It also looks like something straight out of my nightmares.

    But really, look at the bishops in the mitres! They're almost cute.

    I would give it about a month before you woke up to find them advancing in ranks up the duvet towards you...

  • That is weird. Not sure I'd want to touch them.
    Also, what is Lucas' chess set made of?

  • This is repugnant on a level I simply cannot put into words. Absolutely fucking disgusting.
