This weird moose decoration came from Michael Frank, Curator in Chief for the Museum of Bad Art.

Here is his story:

This is a daddy moose and 2 baby meese. They stand just over 2 feet tall. Dad is wearing green corduroy overalls, a nice fleece sweater,and red boots. The kid clinging to his leg has red corduroy pants and a knitted sweater. The baby on top is wearing only a knitted scarf around his neck.

There is an attached card that says, "Christmas is a magical time of year. A time when everybody sets aside their differences to share their feelings and emotions...for people to give a little more and to care a little more. Christmas is a time for people to embrace their memories and remember their childhood dreams. Celebrate these precious thoughts everyday..."

There is also a warning: "FOR DECORATION. NOT A TOY"

Thanks, Mike"

I originally accepted this offer because, someone who shall remain nameless, kept emailing me with the following text:

"Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead!"

My original idea was to decapitate Mike's cute holiday decoration and mount them on a board for my Moosehead stalker. I bounced the idea off of Mike. He was less enthusiastic. Then I got lazy. The moose kept just looking at me. So, one day, in the heat of passion (and desperate to make some additional storage space in our 2 square foot apartment) I cut off their heads and threw the body away.

Maybe someday I'll really mount it.

Maybe they'll just sit in the closet for a long time (taking up way less space than before).
