Ugh, this is from the NYC events list Nonsense NYC:

New York City Chinatown Garbage Tour
Did you know you could make art out of dead animals? Artist Nate Hill is going to show you how to collect dead animals from the garbage in Chinatown to make your own personal taxidermy. This is the first NYC Chinatown Garbage Taxidermy Tour. You will learn how to dig in the garbage for dead animals. You can make art out of these animals. I’ve found everything from sharks to frogs to plain old unidentifiable crap. Sometimes I find nothing interesting, but that is what makes it fun. You never know.
Special for this tour only: Co-host Carlen Altman, appetizers, and haphazard display of how to put animals together on the ground.
Southeast Corner of Canal Street and Lafayette Street, Manhattan
9p rain or shine; $free
So nasty. And it’s not lost on me that this tour, which purports to show you where you can get lots of CRAZY DEAD ANIMALS, takes place in Chinatown. Because, you know, those Asians eat all that weird shit, right? “[E]verything from sharks to frogs to plain old unidentifiable crap,” apparently.
