What’s wrong with this picture?

December 4, 2008


Hey guys….I’m a fun girl….really!  I like to be cutting edge, but this? I just don’t get it!  What is with the skull mania that seems to be sweeping the nation?  You can’t go into any store without seeing skull shirts, jewelry, shoes….the list goes on and one. Seriously…..why are skulls the “must have” accessory everywhere you look? Why would we want to see a sweet adorable baby adorned with a skull?  Does this seem weird to anybody else???

HT to Kamp Krusty for this fun picture and post….my favorite comment on his post?

“Per wikipedia: “Traditionally, the crossbones behind the skull indicates poison, while the crossbones under the skull (the “Jolly Roger”) indicates pirates or piracy.” I’m not anti-skull, but am wary of poison and pirates.

That baby does not look poisonous. But I could be wrong.”

Second favorite?

“Yes there are human skulls on everything. My wife and I had been in K-Mart this weekend and seen boys pajamas that had a big snowflake with a skull at the center of the flake. Skull snowflake…seems kinda funny. Light, fluffy and deadly.”

    That’s so sad – why do marketing people do this – they make you want to get the Pink decorative shirt, hat, hoodie, etc., but with these perceivably negative logos? Is it the pink?

    Boy, I am in total agreement with you, Tracy.
    It sure seems like a disconnect to me.
    Enjoyed reading your blog.
