Cupid meets the Zombie Apocalypse
I posted this on fb yesterday--a home-made, larger-than-life Cupid on somebody's front porch. When I first saw it, I thought briefly that it was a real person in a red jogging suit, going all Katniss on me. SCARY. On closer examination, however, I realized it was a Valentine's Day decoration--a paper mache thing-y with a long blond Thor-ish wig and a heart headband. Also, there are inset eyes (marbles maybe?) involved. And striped socks. And oh yeah. A bow and arrow. It looks like what Cupid would look like if he were doing a guest turn on THE WALKING DEAD.
It is remarkably disturbing. And GREAT.
MORAL OF THIS STORY: Sometimes I get all discouraged and down on my fellow human beings for being so damn predictable. And then I see something like this on an elderly person's porch, and I just go, "Rock on, my fellow human beings. Rock on."
