Dutch Artist Turns Dead Cat Into A Helicopter

Some people bury a deceased pet in the backyard. Some people cremate them and keep the ashes in urns. Some people look at a dead cat and see a cool helicopter! Dutch artist Bart Jansen–who, if nothing else, has a pretty excellent sense of gallows humor–was sad when his cat Orville was hit by a car. Instead of burying his pet, Jansen decided to let him fly like his namesake aviator (Orville Wright).

The equally unnerving and hilarious device is called the Orvillecopter. Watch it in flight:

And one more shot (but Buzzfeed has many more):
