Bite the Hands That Feed

I know that we talk about inspiration coming from God, but I don't care how Christian this is. This was definitely not inspired by the Spirit. There's no way that the God who spoke the stars into being and formed Adam from the dust made this piece of crap.

Yet another example of really crappy, really creepy religious hand sculptures.

*Thanks to Miss Kitty for this absolutely wonderful piece of kitsch.

Glad to help, Greg. I saw it in Kirland's (home-decor store) and knew you had to see it. And it's ONLY $9.99!

What freaked me out most: the creepy stone-resin hands look as if they're about to spring to life (a la Cousin Itt) and CLAP! the poor little goldfinch into a greasy spot. [shakes off chill]

At first I didn't notice the sign. So that thing is an actual bird feeder? Well, it's very...uh...literal.

What happens if a bird $#!t$ in God's hands? Does lightning immediately strike it?

This is hilarious. And I'm slightly scared I may receive one from a relative this Christmas.

Ironic Catholic,
send me their emails, and I'll make sure it happens!

Oh, it's a bird-feeder! I was trying to figure out what that thing was in the hands. I thought it looked like a bird, but I couldn't figure out why God would want me to eat a live bird. But then, I couldn't figure out that thing about tying my son up on an altar either.

But it also makes a LOVELY candy dish! For that 'Grandma Holiday Ribbon Candy', the kind that is ONE hard lump by Christmas.

Miss Kitty said...

No. you. didn't. Joel.

Thank you once again for making me spit Diet Coke all over the monitor.

That is absolutely scary. A bird would be scared, and they can't read.

Miss Kitty said...

Whoops. I meant "Thing," not Cousin Itt. Better get to watching Addams Family reruns again. The more kitsch, the better! Yeaaah!

I find it funny that you go back and re-read your own comments...

...I do that too.

Miss Kitty said...

Yeah, it's that whole writing process thing. The instant nature of commenting on blogs doesn't allow us to and catch our mistakes *before* we post.
