It's so folksy, so primitive. I picture the Walton's doing this by oil lamp, huddled around their kitchen table. I mean, seriously-- seeds??? And yet tons of people are apparently drawn to this art form. The ones I like best are the ones where you can just tell the person totally gets how dorky it is, and maybe even that is the aspect about it they enjoy most. You tell me.
Someone's cat apparently. I dig the simplicity.
The funny part though, is this guy. I have a feeling he designed this whole display, and this is his *big show* every summer. He has these two little singed dolls-- one I'm pretty sure is He-Man, and the other looks suspiciously like a made-over GI Joe. He has them bumble around his little diorama carrying ladders into the live wires etc, at one point even making them (for some reason) ~walk~ on top of the wires carrying on some unheard conversation.
No one can hear a word he says, because he's hard of hearing, and, although miked, seems afraid to speak-up, fearing being overly loud. When an audience member gestured he couldn't hear, the guy just nodded sympathetically and said, "Yeah, I have that same problem."
I don't know why I get such a kick out of this. He's kind of a strange combination of macabre, dorky, and adorable I guess.
