Stuff on My Desk–Plush Mini Cthulhu

I have stuff, and some of it is on my desk.

Plush Mini Cthulhu
What rough beast slouches toward the Walmart toy department to be born.

Cthulhu and many other denizens of H.P. Lovecraft’s fictional universe are often described as being so horrifying that to gaze upon them is to go pants-shittingly mad. The loss of one’s sanity and undergarments in one fell swoop is impossible to come back from.

But what if Lovecraft had it all wrong? What if the Elder Gods drove people over the brink by just being too stinking cute for this world? Take, for example, this adorable mini plush Cthulhu that hangs out on my work desk. Equally at home with exterminating humanity or playing with puppies, this kaiju-sized monstrosity is the Old One we need in this post-LOLcat world.

Stuff on My Desk: Bungee Zombie From The Walking Dead

Bungee Zombie, Walking Dead
I don’t mean to spill my guts, but…

I have stuff, and some of it is on my desk.

Action figures have sure changed from when I was a kid. I used to have the Mego super hero and Planet of the Apes action figures back in the day. They certainly lacked the intricate sculpting you get from the figures produced by McFarlane Toys, and the fact that Mego was working with a limited number of molds meant there was a sameness to many of the figures. And they lacked… what’s the phrase I’m looking for? Oh yeah, exposed entrails. Man, this guy is a showstopper, isn’t he? I’ve got half a mind to make an animated gif of him jumping rope with those intestines. This is the Bungee Walker from McFarlane’s Walking Dead line, and he came into my possession by way of a recent Secret Santa exchange (thanks again, Erik!).
