For Your Collection of Chiroptera, May We Suggest…

I was just Googling for a display case, and I found an eBay store that specialises in them. Terrific! I called their listing up, and one of the first things I read as the text appears is Bat Display Case: Holds 6 Bats.

Maybe it’s the witch in me, but I immediately envisioned a display case with six bats hanging upside down inside it, blinking through the glass.

Then, of course, the image finally loaded, and with vague disappointment I saw six baseball bats lying horizontally on a rack.

It just seems so… prosaic. I liked my idea of a bat display case better.
