Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Blog Guy, I need to tap your background in psychology. I can’t get my husband to enjoy the Christmas holidays. When he sees festive decorations he just breaks down and sobs.
Hmmmm. Did he by any chance grow up in Prague?
I thought as much. Have a look at these photos from Prague, where revelers dressed as Saint Nicholas and a devil approach small children on the street and demand to know if they’ve been good or bad. It’s enough to warp any child for life.
You mean a child has to figure out what a saint and a devil are doing together, and then decide whether to tell them the truth about his behavior?
That’s about it.
But that reduces a lovely tradition to a senseless, disorienting, often menacing complexity.
Blog Guy, I’m curious about the psychology of fashion models. Do they just wear anything they’re given, or do they have strong personal feelings about the creations?
That is a very astute question. Usually, a model wears any piece of rancid garbage some nutjob designer wraps around her wispy body.
Blog Guy, can you explain why Joe the Plumber is messing with an unconscious woman in these photos?
That’s not Joe the Plumber.
No. It’s some parapsychologist who communicates with spirits.
How does he know she has spirits?
If you look carefully, you’ll see she’s wearing black underpants. That’s a sure sign of evil spirits.
