I was hoping Bargoyle was going to tell us there was a note inside the boots that read: "Ha ha! Made ya look!" Kind of like those microscopic messages on computer chips that the chip designers expect no one to ever read, but are intended to blow people's minds if they ever do.

I wonder if the boots-in-a-tiki thing is like some kind of weird fortune cookie? The metaphorical significance of boots escapes me, however. And breaking open tikis is a rather expensive and wasteful way to read one's fortune.

You should buy a plastic skeleton that's proportionate to the boots and place it in there...then tell people your tiki gets loose sometimes and feeds on its own...

Great..thanks a lot.now I am sitting looking at my Tiki idol wondering if there's something inside?? I'm really tempted to now to drill a long hole to see whats on the dril bit...decayed...foot flesh..lolol. You know..I showed this to my wife..now's she's sort of freaked out about our idol now. Only because we have a baby boy about the foot size of those boots...?? I'm not an expert on Tiki God idol folklore..but does anyone know what Tiki GOd that is...LOve God..Harvest God..you know..which God is it ?? LIve life well..

Spooked out..BOYAKA

HEY...if you decide to possibly sell that on EBAY..let us all know...I will certaianly take a crack at it. Sell it as is with the link to TIKI Cental. This could be one of those EBAY freaky bidding items..Like that $28,000 grilled cheese sandwich with the likeness of the Mother Mary that sold on EBAY about 5 month's ago....Live life well..

Still spooked out..BOYAKA

I love this thread. I read the new entries every night to the kids before lights out.
My youngest got busted at Big Lots for taking a whiffle bat to a shelf of resin tikis. She was heard gasping, pink boots...radiation...gnomes...Hoffa...poison gas. Why won't someone believe me?!!
The Barbie's have all been decapitated and their pink boots confiscated.
If you check at the south gate of San Onofre, you will find a coffee can buried in a shallow hole. It contains...pink boots and partially digested poi.

Was there ever a chain around it's neck? Instructions to not remove the chain? Does Karen Black live in your neighborhood?!?

Some day someone will find that can...and a mystery shall be born. Was it a mutant that lost it's home when the Royal Hawaiian closed? Stayed tuned to this evening's In Search Of... with Leonard Nimoy!

Perhaps it was an angry Tiki God from the Royal H. Bad mana that they may close in June!!
Maybe it's a clue that the new place will be a British tea house? The gnomes have been warned!!
You don't take lava from the island and get away with it...
You don't replace tiki gods with gnomes?...

Is there any way you can restore the original photos for this Bargoyle? It's one of my faves.

So many cameras and computers (and cocktails) ago...

I'll see if I can find those pics and re-link em.

Its certainly the creepiest tiki-related "find" I've ever had. lol

No dice.

I'll keep looking, but after sifting through 1000s of backed-up pics, I still haven't found the "Tikis eat boots, and you gotta believe me" pics.

Even weirder... I dont know where that tiki is to take new pics. I swore I put it in the garage as a "someday I'll fix that tiki" project that I never got around to...and I KNOW I didnt throw it out... and now its nowhere to be found...

cue errie music...

The phone call is coming from inside the house!!!!
