“Catastrophe: when a taxidermist mounts the wrong end of the lion”

"Catastrophe” shouldn’t be confused with “cat ass trophy,” but there are jokes.

“I thought a catastrophe was when the taxidermist stuffed the wrong end ofthat cougar you shot...” was posted on the newsgroup rec.gardens on March 9, 1997. “Catastrophe: Taxidermist mounted the wrong end of the lion” was posted on the newsgroup alt.support.arthritis on December 1, 1999. “Someone took their deceased cat to a taxidermist but they stuffed the wrong end… It was a cat-ass-trophy” was posted on Reddit—Dadjokes on March 2, 2018.

“Why do big-game hunters mount lions’ heads?"/"To mount the other end would be a catastrophe” is the joke without use of “taxidermist.”

“I sent that lion I shot to the taxidermist, but he mounted the wrong end!” said Tom catastrophically.

That horrible moment when your taxidermist stuffs and displays the wrong end of your cherished pet. A genuine cat ass trophy.

My friend took his dead cat to the taxidermist and they completely screwed it up and stuffed the wrong end.
It’s a cat-ass-trophy.

The taxidermist mounted the wrong end of my prize lion on the wall.
It’s a catastrophe!
