For crying out loud, the kid's got fangs. What was the photographer/creative director going for here? That's not a smile, that's the face a dog makes when he growls. This is not cute, this is downright scary. Let him haunt you for weeks to come like Cage from Pet Semetary. Have a great week. Clint/Deslyn visit on Thursday and Friday. Danny's birthday-summer-anniversary-severeweatherseason celebration on Saturday.

THE CREEPY DILLARDS KID
Okay, I was about to head to bed, but I came across this picture that I just had to throw up on THE ROOT DOWN before I got my week going. I know this is really random, but, hey, random's what I'm good at. Back when my lovely wife was working at Dillards during graduate school, I was visiting her one day when I came across this "signage" (that's the retail word) which featured a small boy sporting some cool shorts and a polo shirt. I was struck by how horribly disturbing the kid was that I insisted to be able to take the picture home. People were kinda weirded out by my request. But I insisted that it was only because the kid was so creepy looking. My wishes were granted as my wife brought home the picture after the sale was completed. I scanned it into my computer and used it as my wallpaper for some time. After I changed my wallpaper, the kid disappeared deep into the hard drive of my ol' dinosaur computer. But he miraculously made it to my faster, sleeker machine. And now I now present to you: The Creepy Dillards Kid.
