It is the only possible explanation for their bizarre greeting cards. (Just one more post about this, I promise.)
The card below is from the Victorian era. It features an apparently affluent … turnip man. Who wishes the reader “a Merry Christmas” with handheld stone tablet shaped like a heart. (Is it a tombstone? Why is their a flowering plant growing out of it?)
Now … if I had been this card’s creator, I would have at least added, “I hope all sorts of good things turnip for you in the New Year.” Because that’s how I roll.
The trees in Melania Trump’s new White House Christmas display are BLOOD-red. They’re like something out of the film adaptations of Clive Barker’s “Hellraiser” books. They look like they’re metal frames layered with webs of human capillaries.
It’s a Pinhead Christmas.
(I’m so sorry you have to put up with such weirdness when you visit this blog. You people put up with a lot, seriously. But I watch a lot of horror movies, okay?)
[Update: an alumna of mine just piped in — “It is a pinhead Christmas in more ways than one.” Well played, Madam.]
