Today, driving toward Alabama in the darkness of early morning, we saw a yard where a giant hot air balloon was lifting some little penguins into the sky.
The BALLOON part was…Santa. It was SANTA. The penguins had murdered him and made him into a grisly tableaux ala True Detective Season 1 or the movie Seven.They hollowed out his body and over-inflated it to make the arms and legs jut out all helpless and undersized. His dead, dead eyes pointed in random directions. Look at the blank cheery faces of those penguins! They are sociopaths with shiny, black, impenetrable beads as the only windows to their soulless cores.
You can buy it on ebay. If there is something really, really wrong with you, I mean.
Now that I have made sleep impossible for you for days to come, I invite you do one of two things. Or both, as it pleases you.
1) You can come to my Facebook page and talk to me about Paula Vauss. I am desperate to talk about Paula Vauss. Top post. Pinned. EASY TO FIND.
Just PAULA, no spoilers please, as the post is part of a Facebook(club) Readalong Event, and a lot of the folks posting have not read SELS before.
2) Tell me, what’s the worst yard art you have seen perpetrated this season? BONUS POINTS if it is in your neighborhood. Triple bonus if you were so horrified you snapped a picture and can share it.
