Your tiki ate a 1960's go-go chick, and all that remains is her pink boots! It makes sense - 60's go-go chicks cannot stand freezing weather without a warm coat and other winter accesories, and neither could your tiki!

My opinion is that good things usually occur when go-go chicks and tikis intermingle. Maybe not for the 60's go-go chick in this case (the details of the intermingling recipe are still being tweaked), but generally, the outcome is a good one. Field testing in winter conditions are still necessary.

Here is the story of what evils can occur, when pink boots exist, with neither tikis or 60's go-go chicks around to counter the evil forces.

Are you sure the boots are resin? Maybe some little girl was murdered and the murderer was a resin tiki maker and thought it would be clever to get rid of the evidence that way. You may have uncovered crime evidence. That hollow could also be the reason your tiki broke, not because of the temperature or weather. Maybe normally those tikis are solid inside, but somebody hollowed it out for ulterior motives and thereby unnaturally weakened it. I agree: none of that sounds good. It would make for a great Hardy Boys adventure though: "The Case of the Hollow Tiki."

That is really weird. Maybe not the weirdest thing ever, but pretty darn close. I like the idea that it's the result of a tiki eating something. Sort of like how owls poop out rodent bones and other undigestible bits. Whatever your tiki ate, the boots are all that's left. Maybe they were a bit too big to pass?
The hollow body is pretty strange, though. I am fascinated/abhorred by the idea that the boots could be murder evidence. I don't know if there's any way to check that.
Weird. I wonder what the guy was thinking when those went in there-- maybe something along the lines of "Ha, if this thing ever cracks in cold weather, someone's gonna be really creeped out!"

Whew!!! that's just a picture you took of a broken tiki. Christ, I thought for a second it was a screen shot of my latest colonoscopy.

Kicking it up to 50% bran fiber, first thing tomorrow a.m.,

...or maybe the murderer decomposed the little girl's body in a big vat of resin. They used to use horse parts to make glue, you know. Maybe in somebody else's tiki you'll find her rain coat, in another her gloves. And maybe, Bargoyle, HER FEET ARE STILL INSIDE THOSE BOOTS! God, this line of thought is creeping me out...

I would think all you'd have to do is smell to determine if there are any feet in there.

Unless of course, they are coated in resin.

That's it. I can't look at this post anymore if I want to sleep at night.

Can you guys cut it out already? I'm heading to the Mai Kai tomorrow and now I'm going to be holding my kids close and saying "stay away from the tikis". Fortunately, no resin tikis there. But what about the one in my backyard?!? OMG!!

Well, I was thinking about it, and this is what I came up with. It's probably not the answer, but it's my only guess. Just an idea.

It's a hollow tiki made of resin. Easy to topple. Perhaps the boots are made of a heavier material like porcelain, and they were put down in the bottom of the tiki, to weight the bottom down?
