“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Good grief. This is in the Halloween store round the corner. It pees. Would anyone have dared to do the same thing to JC? Here in Texas?

it kind of looks like a baby, especially with the bib.

besides, if it isn't a baby, you may be referring to budai. in that case, it is somewhat buddhaphobia because in china he is usually associated with chán. however, in countries like viet nam, bố đại is typically a symbol of auspiciousness or granting a wish/prayer, that's if you put money in his hand(s). he holds a similar status in vietnam as phúc lộc thọ (fu lu shou).
