back to article Nude lady recreates Star Wars tauntaun scene in dead horse

An Oregon woman who posted photos of herself reclining nude and spattered with equine bodily fluids in the carcass of a dead horse has declared she was partly inspired by Star Wars. Jasha Lottin and her friend John Frost came to the attention of authorities in Oregon after an animal lover in South Carolina took exception to a …

    ...riding it and use it as beast of burden is OK, but posing nude with it is a no no. If she was dressed, would it be more or less revolting?

    What, didn't *someone* use chunks of something very similar to a horse as a dress before? Was there any fuss back then? Thought so.

    I am shocked and disgusted by what she did, but I wouldn't interfere with her freedom of speech. Use its fur (or skin) on the raw, while you're at it. Eeeeww.

        Re: She bought & shot it just for the pics... a certain country only a few miles from the UK they do far worse to horses. They kill them and then eat them.

        btw, 32 is pretty old for a horse. They probably did it a favour.

          Nothing wrong

          Nothing wrong with eating horsemeat, any more than there is eating cow meat.

          Just because you consider horses to be what is effectivly a large pet,...

          However, this woman is just... foul.

          Yep, because it's actually quite nice. Also not so long ago we, (i.e. the UK), did the same. Tastes and general ignorance changes overtime.

We're all part of Gaia's great bonanza, all flesh and blood, all creatures born without morals or guidance, so as long as no earthly suffering was felt by any party, what does it matter?

      Indifference is the word

      I don't care if she lined up 15 dead horses and had a naked orgy on them and I don't think anyone else should either.

      We (as a planet) spend way too much time preoccupied with what other people are doing. We also waste far too many resources on animals for no apparent reason. Tree huggers will be quick to point out that it is "a precious life form" but don't mind swatting bugs, using antibacterial soaps (the ones that use soap), etc. because those life forms are a direct inconvenice to them. Personally I don't care at all what you do with animals as long as it is within the law, it doesn't inconvenience me, and you clean up your mess. The fact that we have homeless people that are actually looking for help that can't get any while PETA holds fully catered rallies shows how stupid the whole "pets are people too" crowd really are. If our ancestors had been that idiotic we as a species would have died out long ago.

      Please. Any *real* fan would know it was spelled just 'tauntaun', no CamelCase required.

      RE: Too late

      Years ago I read the Star Wars idea of using the dead mount as an igloo was inspired by a Red Indian legend of a warrior that hid from his enemies on the battlefield by gutting and crawling inside his dead pony.

    Nothing too shocking

    if you've ever been present to see a deer gutted. Nudity is a bit unusual in that circumstance, I will grant, but she's not at all hard on the eyes, and I'd be lying if I didn't admit the predator ape in the back of my brain didn't find the scene at least somewhat appealing.

    You would be too. But don't let me stop you.

    Something's Not Right Here

    Is it bad that I read this entire story and the only thing that seemed not right about it was that Han Solo didn't have a light-sabre, he used Luke's?

    Also, when I watch that scene in Empire it just seems wrong somehow. Not because he's stuffing Luke inside a meat-bag (Hey look, a HK-47 reference lol), but because I believe that is the only scene, in any of the movies, that a non-Jedi actually uses a light-sabre.

    1. Harvey Trowell
      Thumb Up

      I agree on both counts.

      First, that it was clearly Luke's lightsaber and not Han's, and getting that fact wrong is the most offensive part of the article. Also that it was out of character for Han to use the lightsaber after saying "Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid." in episode four. Needs must, I guess. After all, it would have got messy if he tried to blast his way in.

      As for other use by non-Jedi, I fear you have overlooked the Sith (particularly General Grievous who presumably buys his in bulk) and the interesting case of R2D2 using Luke's as a buttplug for the first half hour of Jedi...

      1. Jedit Silver badge
        Thumb Down

        Not out of character at all

        Han still thinks the lightsabre is a weapon, just that it's out of date. Also he wasn't using it to fight, putting your argument on the level of saying a US Marine would cut his meat with an M-60 because a knife wouldn't be any use in a firefight.

    Have to say it, but this couple are in desperate need of some help for mental instability.

    Whatever floats your boat, so long as it doesn't harm anything, but this couple decided to share it all with the world - what freaks me out most is their expressions. "Hey, this is normal and fun! Wheee!"

    I *really* hope there was some class A drug imbibing going down during that photo shoot.

    Shocked? No, just saddened to be honest - is this where civilisation has bought us? A pair of prize nutters gutting a horse, eating bits of it and rolling in it and posting the results on the web?

    Sure, I know there's *much* worse shit happening around the world, but it's the blase nature of this particular sad charade that saddens me.

    I looked at the images and wished I hadn't - and now to move swiftly on and attempt to forget I saw them and perhaps therein lies the problem.

    Being human, I was curious and had to look, however, also being actually *human* I found it sick and unappealing - so is this couple 'less than human?' - hmm, jury is out on that one, I'd say resoundingly, YES, they are less than human - completely lost their moral compass.

    They haven't even done anything illegal. Unlike the Greek authorities whom frauded to get into the Europe in the first place.

    The same happens all over the 'western world' authorties, corporations' boses and other rich ppl ripping ordinary folks. Isn't it about time we try to do something about the things that really matters instead of focussing on a couple that fools around with a dead animal?
