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."

can you imagine, though, the start you'd get everytime you looked out the window or opened that door? I would be scaring myself every minute of the day, and that's the truth.

Want to hear something funny? Okay, well, when I first saw this, I thought you had dressed up in some crazy costume and were posing on the St George house's porch. I was so intrigued/creeped out! Next year's Halloween costume?
