Happy Thanksgiving (Actual)

While searching the RLP stock art library for the illo I used with yesterday’s post, I came across this one, which I share with you now. I’m not sure exactly why this bit of CGI creeps me out—maybe it’s the lit-from-the-underside face, maybe it’s the dead doll eyes—but when I look at it I hear an eerie female voice, superficially soft and sweet but with a demonic grating edge, whispering, “Join us. Partake of the dead turkey’s carcass. Become one with us. There is no escape…”

Or maybe I’m just projecting memories from family dinners past. Pass me the cranberry sauce, wouldja?
