Notes

Presenting (in crypt keeper fashion) odd little vignettes quirky and dark and yet strangely compelling. Sordid revelations of 1950's "Ike Years" planted like a seed that bloomed monstrous. Vacuum cleaner hijinks, eery wedding bells, bug spray, whale hunting, worm digging, the evil eye bestowed by a three-headed crone and a wealthy powerful toad launching a torpedo for the sake of his chauffeur.

Followed by a bittersweet over the shoulder glance at youth from the perspective of a pigeon feeding proselytizing psychotic, an old
man oblivious, impervious, a victim of society's cruel experiments, and a golden moment wherein a parasite pays tribute to the richness of his short insignificant life.

Chew that fat twice!
