Gigglebit: bad taxidermy jobs on Twitter

27 May 2014

Gigglebit is Siliconrepublic’s daily dose of the funny and fantastic in science and tech, to help start your day on a lighter note.

Like any sector, technology has a serious side, and it is often issues within this serious side that make headlines or that organisations need to explore for their business. Malware! Data breaches! Cloud storage! Do I really need this software? What candidate has the best IT skills for this job, and what the heck is fog computing?

With Gigglebit, we turn the spotlight on humorous and/or amazing content about science and tech, because sometimes the lighter side should be taken seriously, too.

Today, we highlight the Twitter account Crap Taxidermy, that features outrageous captions with photos of bad taxidermy jobs. It may sound morbid, but it’s also making some 112,000 followers laugh on a regular basis.

Despite being bold, brash and imaginative, Crap Taxidermy has stipulated that it in no way advocates cruelty to animals – the Twitter account is all about the poorly executed taxidermy jobs.
