The Christmas Ornament from the Black Lagoon

In the spirit of Jerry Darlak, God rest his soul, Buzz is doing our Christmas shopping at the liquor store this year. With which, we walked into a Kaisertown wine shop.

And what to our wondering eyes should appear but a representative from Bacardi Rum, offering tastes. We sipped a bit of coconut rum. We left with a warm feeling and a Bacardi ornament that the rep handed us. So nice! Merry Christmas to you, too!

Then we opened up the box and looked at the ornament.

We can't hang this on our tree!

Bacardi

It looks satanic! Like a demon!

Apparently those folks at Bacardi have guzzled a bit too much of their wares. Otherwise they might have thought of a little silver rum bottle, or ... wouldn't a parrot be tropical? Even a "yo ho ho and a bottle of rum" pirate would have been OK, if he wore a red and green bandanna.

But a bat? Or a gargoyle, whatever this is?

Oh well. 

It's the thought that counts.
