“Why do big-game hunters mount lions’ heads?"/"To mount the other end would be a catastrophe.”

The word “catastrophe” sounds like “cat ass trophy,” and there are jokes. “This sounds like a guaranteed cat-ass-trophy!” was posted on the newsgroup rec.motorcycles on October 13, 1992.

“Only the front of my cat is my familiar, her ass is just cat? Can I, then, cut it off and mount it, making it a cat ass trophy?” was posted on the newsgroup alt.witchcraft on July 17, 1998. “Why do big-game hunters mount their lions’ heads? To mount the other end would be a catastrophe” was posted on Reddit—Dadjokes on November 2, 2020.

The joke often specifically uses “taxidermist,” as in “Catastrophe: when a taxidermist mounts the wrong end of the lion” and “I took my dead cat to a taxidermist, but they stuffed the wrong end. It was a cat-ass-trophy.”

This sounds like a guaranteed cat-ass-trophy! When you get it mounted on your trophy shelf, let us know. I cat-e-gorically believe you can’t cat-a-log the non-cat-a-leptic cat-a-clysmic results! And I don’t say this cat-a-chrestically!

I had a framed feline posterior mounted on the wall, but I lost it…

Instead of mounting a lion’s head on the wall as a regular trophy, we could mount the lions ass instead. Then it would be a Cat-Ass-Trophy

@GeorgeTakei Always wanted to mount the hind end to a plaque with a brass tag that says catastrophe (cat-ass-trophy).

@antijenic @Therajill Just put the cat’s rear end on a wall-mount. Then it will be a cat-ass-trophy.
