My young son likes Sponge Bob and I find that cartoon very disturbing.
The only redeeming quality is the Hawaiiana and Tiki influence.

That's amazing. I gotta get me some of those! Cocktail party at my house, then we all stand on the roof with our tiki paratroopers, and OOPS - someone slips and lands in the pool. Or garbage dumpster. Whatever will look funniest on YouTube! ha...

Nice!!!! Purchase complete. Keep your eyes open for these at an event near you. You just might get invaded.

I have a set of those Easter Island heads on the top of my cubicle wall at work. People seem to really dig them.

as an artist I find this to be an intriguing subject... I always tell people that "art made for the purpose of PROFIT by NORMAL, WELL ADJUSTED PEOPLE usually sucks"...

when I see this stuff, it all looks like crap to me, but my view on this subject is somewhat skewed.... lol...

I don't think it's art made by "normal well-adjusted people" that's so much the issue. It's "art" made by people into it for the profit and/or for the mass appeal, or many other crazy reasons.

I took pictures at a retirement party last week of cheesy "tiki" and "luau" decorations from a local party store. It left me shaking my head, and that's why I took a couple photos. I'll post here later.

I think I would love to have some Moai on my cubicle wall at work. If you're near a "Furniture Row" store, they have been selling some very nice Moai figures in their sofa store for years. Somewhere I have pictures taken in my local Daytona Beach store. They're actually very respectable looking, but not super cheap, I think the small ones were $20 and the larger ones (10" or 11") were $30. I think. I'll have to look at the photos. But they would make any cubicle look pretty damn good!

Someone at my work retired today, and the theme was vacation/Hawaii/Luau. Of course that meant a trip to Party City or Dollar Tree to get decorations. See the photo below. It's sad that many folks are exposed to tiki with a crap-fest like the stuff below.
