Fox and Skunk, heralds of the season


I was in the craft stores this weekend. And while I was hoping for some charming and cheesy Halloween tableaus, capitalism is so hungry it has already moved on, in its ceaseless desperation, to Christmas. Is no one inclined to buy Halloween things five days before the holiday? 

Has capitalism grown so mad with hunger that it can't think straight?

Capitalism has grown so mad with hunger it can't think straight!

You heard it here first, if you never read Marx!

Or anyone else who read Marx.

Which is fine. You're busy. And I respect that.

And look, I'm not going to change the world here. All I can do is put fox and skunk into it. That is my correction. Beyond that, it is all out of my hands.

And so I present a few pictures of fox and skunk, as they explore the first tableaus of super fake Christmas:


  1. A very happy birthday to you, sir. Or, as I like to say, congratulations on completing one more trip around the solar orb.


If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
