I love kitsch but even I have my limits...



... do you have any Easter related kitsch you like; why not share it here?

Whoever produced that deserves a slap upside the head.

Oh. Oh my. Wow. I... wow. Speechless.

Is that real or photoshopped?

I kinda don't think this is real...

GAG.

Even Passover isn't exempt from kitch. Stephen Colbert did a bit on 10 Plagues finger puppets - seriously, how do you play with those?

The candy cross is real; it has flowers on it, and isn't a crucifix. (The leaves on the flowers are what you can see over the 'shoulders' of the Peep figure.)

At least two or three Peeps were dismembered in the making of this photographic tableau.

Does this have anything to do with "The Easter Bunny must die?" I've read about?
Yegads!

Just another mad Catholic said...

a) the Easter Bunny must not die, it would deprive me of an excuse to wander around campus wearing bunny ears on the last day of term.

b) what the FRACK are these people up to?

c) do I get to put the wrench in the machine that produces this trash?

nazareth priest said...

Just another mad Catholic: You GOTTA send pictures of you wandering around campus in bunny ears...it's a batshit crazy kinda thing, yeah?

Smiley said...

Kat must you really ruin every feast by bringing up such terrible artwork :(

Suburbanbanshee said...

She doesn't ruin it. She just humorously exposes the folly that is part of human nature, which allows us to reflect upon our weakness -- and God's kindness and greatness. It makes us humble. Also, it's funny. :)

Everything she shows us probably seemed like a good idea at the time. :)

Suburbanbanshee said...

To their makers, anyway. :)

Just another mad Catholic said...

I promise to send Kat the pics of me wearing bunny ears - after Easter

nazareth priest said...

Just another mad Catholic: I'll be waaaiiiting:<)!
A blessed Triduum and Easter to you, mate!
