    That cat you were holding by the foot, did you murder, murder that poor animal just so you could fulfill your grousom desire just to stuff it, that's some bad karma coming your way. If you kill an animal it is only justified if you need, need it for food, period. You don't kill, murder animals just to stuff its body. No wonder you turned in to such a loser, with all the lives you have taken so you could stuff them. That's some evil shit and gods gonna get you for it. There are no excuses that are going to save you, gods gonna get you.

    Saw him on American Pickers, but then they only showed the interesting junk collections. I liked seeing his house too, quite a contrast.
