Ain't That America

I think I finally got myself off some of the collectibles and xtian sites that started plaguing me after I bought that Thomas Kinkade angel figurine for Mrs. Nator's grandmother. (I know. Don't get me started.) Here, however, is just a small section from one of their recent emails to me. Clicky piccy makey biggy.

I think the juxtaposition of the creepy preemie doll, the John Wayne knife and the Disney fairy just says it all about the U.S. of A., don't you? The Thomas Kinkade and Precious Moments links are just side Jell-O salads to this remarkable Spam Casserole of Middle American goodness.

I think I'm going to have to go do something very deviant right now. Don't wait up.

crimifuckinitly, don't lay that shit off on us middle americans.

okay, okay, probably a bunch of that crap sells outhere. but jiminy christmas, that shit's creepy!!!

have you seen those "reborn" dolls? now those give me the willies. maybe it's having worked in child welfare and having too many dead babies in my head.

i just think these are creepy weird.

don't know if the link will show up, but if not, take a minute and go to ebay and enter item # 150152817606 ~ "Baby Jaycie"

i swear, that 2d photo down, she looks just like the dozen or so infants i've seen dead of SIDS. the coloring is eerily similar. makes me wonder about this "artist."

here's what i used to call death in suburbia:

a recliner
a huge TV

any of those three made me feel as if i were losing my free spirited wild child independence.

i now have a huge TV but it is confined to my husband's lair in the back of the house. the huge TV ~ not enormous huge, but i don't know, 20 something inches? ~ has cable. sigh.

a recliner actually came to live in my house for a while. in its defense, it looked like a nice upholstered chair, but it definitely reclined. i would slit my throat before i'd allow one of those gigantic overstuffed leather la-z-boys in my house.

we just all have our little quirks, yes? ;-)

Dear Belle,

Thank you for scarring me for life.

I'm going to buy that tiny John Wayne knife to shank that plastic preemie baby.

I love how the 'so' contains a heart - just when you thought it couldn't get any more nauseating...

as a woman who has been trollng the very depths of internet porn for the past week in order to find images for my last post i say the following with some authority:

-that's just OBSCENE

-you should be ASHAMED of yourself

-if I'd known there were going to be pictures like this up when I came here I wouldn't have

-what's WRONG with you people??

i can't conceive of a more concise explanation of why i fled the States, screaming. thanks for the visual aids. Now when Brits ask me why I like England better I shall simply refer them to this post.

(ps. i'm pretty sure my high school math teacher owns all three of these objects. i'm from michigan.)
