Grover, Who Died For Our Sins

I usually update on Fridays, but figured this week I’d move it up a day for a special Christmas entry.

Above is a hand-drawn, Muppet-themed fried chicken nugget advertisment I spotted at a convenience store near my school a couple weeks ago.

Elmo looks like a pervert

But of course the piece de resistance is the Christmas Tree/Grover Crucifix motif. Nothing says Christmas like a bloody, beaten muppet!

Is he wearing underwear? And what’s that thing on his side? Hm…

Merry Christmas, Everybody!

    Wow, What bizarre juxtaposition!

    I’m so sorry I haven’t visited your site in a while.

    That is absolutely classic!

    What’s more, that looks like blood dripping from Elmo’s lips, not chicken grease… Grover, too. Unless that’s a necktie. So… horrible-funny or weird-funny, depending on your take. I guess it works on several levels, as does most good art.

    I concur. This is the Venus de Milo of hand drawn fried chicken advertisements!

    Frightening. Can this be some kind of (possibly unconscious) reference to the Hideyoshi edict of 1587 where he had several Franciscans crucified at Nagasaki?
