Curse of the Tiki

The Brady Bunch taught me long ago that tikis are cursed. A giant tarantula on Peter's chest... Greg can't surf perfectly... obviously a tiki is to blame. Spiders and surfing wipe outs don't just happen on their own. And so I have to side with the Bradys on this one... tikis are cursed.

The greatest curse of the tiki is its inability to move its arms for swatting or wiping, combined with the frequent company it shares with tropical birds. And even more of a curse to the tikis - the birds sing the exact same songs all day long on a 21-minute loop.


Birds are a curse to tikis. Tikis are a curse to humans. Humans eat birds, flip birds, and carve tikis. It's a complicated cycle, but a cycle indeed.

Hey... this is my 100th post! Thanks to all of you who have kept me going with your visits and comments. I'm having a good time with the blog... a hundred more posts are on the way shortly. Well, not too shortly.

"In the tiki tiki tiki tiki tiki room..." I think you've forgotten that wonderful treat associated with tiki's - frozen pineapple on a stick! Tiki's cant be that bad :)

I remember that Brady episode! What a gem of television history. I like your tiki man. He looks quite pissed off, it's awesome.

Congrats on the 100th post...looking forward to many more.

Horray! Congratulations on your 100th post and my 100th joy. I LOVE your blog Shane! Thanks for keeping it going and keeping me laughing. (p.s. The Tiki room has now become one of the only rides that Kenzie will go on lately. She's becoming more and more chicken. You need to get down here straighten her up.)

One time a cursed tiki made my tolied overflow. or was it just lack of fiber?

I love the string of logic here, Shane. Great comedic strategy... or maybe it wasn't so calculated? Maybe you were just being funny. You do that sometimes.

What would be cool is if your bird was listening to an iPod. I give you permission to use that in your next sketch.
