NOT for the faint of heart…


Just what DOES happen when some teenagers decide to create

some goodies for a holiday party and steal your camera to document said creations?


Ok…I get it


the little scruffians…


Seem innocent enough…


they apparently formed their own little

penguin fight club!


It was a bloody creamy massacre

poor little olive never had a chance.

And then the mice

had to come charging into the picture…


… apparently red dye number 2

has been known to create deformities


Massive deformities...In chocolate mice!


What has our world come to?

what happened to peace on earth?


goodwill to men?

and even broken mice and overly-aggressive penguins

alison giese Interiors said...

OMG! LOVE it! The Christmas Day penguin massacre!
Oh, and your mantelscape is to die for!

Linda@ Lime in the Coconut said...

...and funny thing about those one wanted to eat the fight club loser. Strange.

The tropical stuff is OUR form of Christmas. Grab clippers or machete. Go outside. Hack away at poor unsuspecting palms (hmmm.I see where they get it from now)Bring them inside. Throw them on the piano.

Easy peasy puddin' and pie!
