An alert and astute mockdocker sent me this photo of a product she found on Amazon, and it cracked me up not only because it’s a big stuffed evil-looking octopus on top of a Christmas tree, but because she included in her message the quote which now serves as the title of this post.
You guys, this horrific tree topper is ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY NINE DOLLARS. What in the holy hell?
I was just sitting here wondering, as I typed this, what sort of crazy person would even WANT such an item, and then it occurred to me that I kind of want it. Now I wouldn’t spend that kind of cash on an evil octopus tree topper, but if given to me as a gift, I believe I would gladly use it, if only to stimulate interesting conversations.
