Giant Cockatoo sends Halloween Greetings

My favorite vintage postcards are the super creepy and weird ones. I think this one qualifies. In fact, it may be my favorite postcard from this season’s crop.

The giant cockatoo is understandably shocked by the devilish, KKK sorta he-she entering the room with an enormous jack-o-lantern perched upon its head. Since the bird is chained to its stand, I can’t blame it for being alarmed.

The bird’s internal dialog, “Oh crap, I’m chained to this stand and can’t fly away from the diabolical fiend approaching me. On the other hand, maybe this demonic hermaphrodite saved some seeds from carving that pumpkin. Seeds – I like seeds. And that’s a big ass pumpkin…lots of seeds. Maybe this guy/gal ain’t so bad after all.”
