What features would you have in and around a totally un-PC house?
If you were going to design a house to be the least PC house evah, what features would it have, both inside and around the grounds?

I'll start: A wolf pelt hanging on the wall.

1. I wouldn't do that.
I wouldn't have such a house. How would you prefer that wolf be killed? I'm so disappointed.

2. The point is to decorate the most tacky and appalling house
you can think of.

It's an exercise inspired by a design magazine I saw today.

No actual wolves were killed in the making of this thread.

9. Oh . . .
I guess I'd build the structure of the house with the bloodied broken skulls of baby Seals, and bind it together with the by-product goo that is the final result of the rendering plants that dispose of all of the dogs and cats killed through euthanasia in America's many thousands of Pounds.

18. that's arguable
maybe we could reach some sort of consensus, and have a wing of the house made out of old growth?

37. The best way to kill this wolf would be...
a) pointless vivisection
b) alergy testing for cosmetics
c) lung cancer from smoking Marlboros
d) choking on a whooping crane

unPC enough for ya?

12. Pretty good, glad it's friday
I found a juvenile cestode in my Wildlife parasitology course, so that's means we've found most of the major parasites already. And spring break's only a week off. :woohoo:

I've gotta give a presentation to the Zoology department on the research next month, so the more creepy-crawlies, the better.

I suck at little creepy crawlies. I like them megafauna, even if they're just inch-long lepidopterans.

40. i have one.
i got it several years ago when i bought my first home. of course to mock all the other people that would have a lawn jockey. oddly, i've NEVER had anybody say anything about how it may be offensive(he's a black jockey), even when i lived in a predominantly minority neighborhood. this year i stuck him in storage, the joke has gotten old since nobody gets it's a joke, or takes it seriously for that matter! he'll get a surrealist paintjob soon to revive him. my girlfriend said the other day i should paint him up to look like GWB...hmmmm.

39. I'm way beyond PC
I can't describe my home or I'd offend virtually evryone.

I did get a note from a petsitter - "We love you. We love your cat. But your house is the scariest fucking place my wife and I have ever seen!" I guess the human skulls might upset people, but scary? Me?


Khash.

44. Of course, the house would have to be huge and suburban...
- At least a 40 minute SUV commute for someone who works downtown
- At least a 1/2 Acre yard to soak with fertilizers
- As many rooms to heat and cool as possible

46. Ivory furniture covered with baby seal skin
and a freezer stocked with the meat of the most endangered animals on earth. mmmm.... ;)

The house will be made of pure rainforest wood and will look over a town to give them the impression that I'm looking down on them all. Of course everyone will be able to see my house at all times. My fireplace will be burning $100 bills and fine artwork only.

My all-women service staff will be made up of the hottest women wearing only......OK let's not get too carried away :evilgrin:
