There's a dead skunk...

in the middle of the road. A dead skunk in the middle of the road. A dead skunk in the middle of the road and it's stinking up to high heaven!- a song someone wrote

Go out to get the newspaper this morning and there's this big, dead skunk right in the middle of E street, in front of my house. I actually don't know if it was stinking as I can't smell skunks. Still, it kinda grossed me out cause some of its entrails were scattered about. YUCK!

Libertarianism be damned! Whose job is it to clean up these things? CALL STREET MAINTENANCE!

I've buried a number of dead animals found around here in my back yard. I'm almost tempted to go bury that skunk. Almost. The guts gross me out. Besides, I have to go to work now.

Would someone please come by and get rid of that dead skunk?

I'm leaving now. I expect it to be gone by the time I get home.

You are so fortunate not to be able to smell skunks, Fred. If you do bury it, be careful because there have been recent reported cases of rabies in Humboldt County.

And yes, Carol, I know about the rabies. Need to get the cats vaccinated. I months late on that.

Just let it sit. The other Skunks will no doubt enjoy not having to forage for food tonight! Or the Foxes.

Its funny Fred how when you cant or wont do something yourself, you rely on government assistance.

Fred turns to Godless socialism as soon as the going gets rough.

Fred's a Libertarian because he thinks it will help get him hot internet chicks. Just a word of advice for you Fred, brushing your teeth regularly helps as well.

Circle the skunk at midnight, sprinkling salt and chanting "Leave my presence!". That will bring help.

Jees Fred...

Skunks are good eating. Strip that skin and make a hat. Dip the little bugger in A1 Sauce...and BBQ away.

Or you could try skunk shish-ka-bobs....4 skunks (skinned) 1 onion quartered, bell peppers, cherry tomtoes and just skewer the whole carcasses, ad the veggies and spray the whole thing with right guard.

Yummy.

Or...you could just haul the damn thing off without the taxpayers have to fund the enjoyment of your property.

otherwise, I'll remove the skunk from your psyche and your premises for $200

Let me know...I'll need cash.

I invented a dance called the "Funky Skunk" but for some reason, it never caught on.
