ï»¿For those of you that got an early start on Friday night, we at Thrifthorror want you to wake up to this. We think it will add to the experience of being hung over.
Oh, hi, how are you?
Imagine if you will, a colorblind madman sculpting a pigeon in the style of Edward Gorey. But because he is, after all, a madman, his artistic media are limited to beeswax, melted chocolate, and red gumdrops. And because he is a madman, his interpretation of a pigeon has a gaping, hungry maw where its stomach might, in a normal bird, be.
Thankfully, because of the miracle of 21st century technology, you no longer have to merely IMAGINE chocolate-and-beeswax Gorey pigeons with gaping chest-maws. You can SEE them. If you’re in Austin, and wanted to really go crazy with $.97, you could even BUY one, but we do not recommend this, nor do we condone lumpy wax bird things.
Well crap, now I made it sad.
Maybe it’s a kiwi? Or a coconut? There is the smallest chance we’ve misunderstood the artist’s intent, but we hope this is not a damning offense.
I didn’t really have the heart to light it, though in a technical sense it is a candle of some sort. I was about to, but I had this horrible vision of the thing dragging itself around in a sad circle, dribbling brown wax and making a horrible, low squawking sound. I put the ligher away and cried inwardly.
Fly free, noble birdlike wax product. Fly free, to whatever horizon your heart carries you.
Lumpy waxish bird-type thing from the Savers on South Lamar, Austin

It looks like a demented kiwi. I think lighting it on fire would be the humane thing to do…
I think somebody already tried to burn it to death, but it survived. The overall look is “Dear god, why? End the pain!”
