Is This a Tiki? You b da Judge


Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored," where this strange bored deity has taken up residence about 200 yards from my house. I will entertain all thoughts on what this might be. I think its a Tiki, but I'm not terribly educated on South Pacific pantheons.


I do believe we can rule out "piece of unwanted postmodernist art."

It's certainly Tiki-esque.

May I have your backyard?

It looks like a tiki that would EAT you if your offering displeased it.

Perhaps someone found it, had a "Greg Brady" experience and then found it a new home...

I definately ditto Granny in that it looks like a deity who would not be happy unless left some offering.

It is definately cool though.

I believe it is a tiki from the Don Martin Tribe of Those Who Grew Up on MAD Magazine. http://www.geocities.com/donmartinweb/

I'm with Buzzard Billy. This is play on Tiki's but not actually a tiki.

Who cares if it's a "real" Tiki! It's miraculous and cool that it just appeared in your back yard. Of course you should leave offerings for it. Who knows what being has decided to take up dwelling within? What fun!

There are only totem poles around here that the natives make.

In New Jersey there are only smokestacks that the natives make.
