Rudolph, the Red Shirt Roadkill
This morning while I was driving home and about a 3/4 of a mile from my house, on State Street, I saw one of the strangest things I have ever seen; a dead deer on the side of the road...wearing a red t-shirt. Not like draped over it but like you see when someone puts a sweater on a dog in the winter. It literally had its front legs in the sleeves, head through the hole. I drove past a good 200 yards and stopped. I threw it in reverse and backed up to get a better look. I was pretty tired and didn't know if I was hallucinating. Indeed, a dead deer wearing a red t-shirt. I wonder if it is still there. If it is, I'll take a picture and maybe post it if 'The People' (that's you) desire it.
