Dept. of Hideous Xmas Decorations, Take 3

The Ice Man Cometh. He cometh and he dumpeth his stool and he dropeth his feces upon us. One presumes that what the "designer" is aiming for here is some sort of Christmassy icicle effect or glowy North Pole stalactite (tiny coloured lights illiuminate the thing at night). It is the semi-solid appearance of the structure, though, that tends to evoke the biologically hard-wired emotional response of pure repulsion, experienced when we encounter anything slightly evocative of animal excretions.

It is unfortunate that someone acutally put time and effort into creating this festive turd. I'm not really sure what the impetus between one, singularly oversized icicle might be...although an overdose of fibre springs to mind in this instance. Let's just call a spade and spade (and somebody, please, fetch a spade!) and name this for what it truly is: crap.

Now, if you would all care to join in a rousing chorus of "Dingle Bells"...

Awesome. I was just about to post about this. I think the iceman dump is way better than the deformed popcorn analogy I was working with. I do recommend that hideous decoration lovers check it out at its most glorious: 5pm, just as the winter daylight disappears.

Aie, sorry to hae preempted a post. Your photos are fantastic! Thanks for those. I hope you will expand on the deformed popcorn analogy. It truly does resemble some rejected spawn resulting from the coupling of a popcorn maker and a cotton candy machine. Perhaps from the Island of Misfit Toys...

(P.S. I realize that I should have written "impetus behind" not "between". My proofreader took Sunday off, the lazy whore.)

Just went through your pages. Are you tuned in to my tame doubt Wanna joke?) Why is someone who never gambles just as bad as a regular gambler? Because he is no better!
