We bet you’re interested now. Keep reading for the deets!
The 34-year-old rock-and-roll guitarist and frontman recently had to plea with his fans to stop sending him taxidermied animals forcing him to turn into the patron saint of preserved animals.
White explained that while his fan’s hearts are in the right place, he cannot entertain what they are doing as it finds it to be insulting to the dead animal itself.
I don’t have much choice in the matter – I feel like a rescuer, a Humane Society employee. There’s a majesty to these animals that I want to preserve; I can’t see them looked at in a comedic way. Sometimes people get it wrong and it’s so insulting. They’ll buy me a squirrel playing pool or some s**t like that.
If your big plan was to send Jack White your dead dog Dutch, stuffed in a pose like he’s taking a crap forever. You might want to forget it, it turns out this might just be the “Hardest Button To Button.”
