Bizarre Boob: I Don't Want to Be a Halloween Slut. I Want to Watch Skinned Muskrats.

There was a debutante in my hometown and even an annual beauty pageant where one lucky girl got to be crowned queen of the beautiful brown river than ran through my city.

But sadly, no muskrats.

Airing on PBS at 12:30 a.m. Halloween night, Muskrat Lovely is a documentary film about the National Outdoor Show in the tight-knit hunting community of Dorchester County, Maryland. Half-beauty pageant, half-skinning contest, it is the only annual city celebration where beauty queens share the stage with skinned rodents.

Here's a trailer from YouTube. WARNING: The first minute or two is violent and not suitable for the squeamish or the occasional muskrat empathizer. FF.

Look tasty? The documentarian has also taken the liberty of including muskrat dish recipes on the film's website.
