I am confused. I got an email from one of those flash-sale sites about these wall decals, and I have QUESTIONS.Â
“K is for Awesome”? Am I misreading? (I suppose it could be “Is for K awesome” which is what it actually LOOKS like. Maybe it’s a tribute to the linguistic stylings of Steve Martin and Dan Aykroyd’s Festrunk Brothers.) K is not for awesome! A is for Awesome! K is for Kardashian! or Kooky! or Kome on! Is this the message we want to teach our children? The first initial in your name stands for whatever excellent word we want it to, because you are JUST THAT SPECIAL? This is going to lead to problems later in life.
And then there is this.
“Darling, we need you to sleep below an unattributed quote from one of the most unnerving children’s books of all time, thus displaying our familial commitment to plagiarism, disrespect of intellectual property no matter how creepy, Â and stalking. Also you are never moving out of this house. OK, honey?”
As Lynn Harris put it ever so memorably about Love You Forever: “The only thing missing: the smothering motherÂ ghostÂ crawls across the floor.”
Clearly I am a fuddy-duddy who does not understand fabulosity in wall stickers or flexible attitudes toward copyright.
