Blood & Heads
I gave blood today, and the blood drive was held at the Burbank Elks Lodge. As I lay there bleeding, staring into the dead, glass eyes of a bodyless elk's head, I wondered "If you have a club named after a certain animal, why would you hang the severed head of said animal on the wall of your clubhouse?" I would think that you might want to show respect to, and admiration for, the namesake of your fraternity rather than take a buzzsaw to its corpse and display what you cut off on the wall!
Maybe they could change their name to "The Severed Heads Club."
