I was driving past a garden center that normally has those big, inflatable Homer Simpson Halloween lawn things out front for sale, when I saw this:
I'm not quite sure what to think.

Damn, that looks like a cross between a scary tiki and a killer clown. Yikes!

Well, I don't know if I'm proud or embarrassed to say that I bought one when I encountered it at clearance prices (half-off). It certainly looks like a child's cartoon version of a tiki (not scary enough, doesn't instill awe especially), but I'm sure that THAT was the manufacturer's point -- to entertain children at luau-themed birthday parties. Hey, that's okay. I think it can be used to gently lure people into the awesome Tiki Worship Palace awaiting them as they enter my backyard where, yes, I have built a "working" volcano and other pseudo-Polynesian art objects that should make 'em wonder if I'm not taking this just a tad too seriously... Bwa-ha-ha-haaa!!!
Oh, yeah, I figure if you put a headband and a single feather on the top head, the vague but colorful figure can double as a totem pole for your Great Western Frontier parties as well. Eh? _|:^0 >:-] #8') ||

Perfect for the kids tiki inspired birthday party, kind of has that totem thing though.
May the aloha spirit be with you in all that you do.
