Seasons greetings from scenic Innsmouth!


The Esoteric Order of Dagon wishes nothing but the fishiest best this holiday season to you and yours! At least until Cthulhu returns, then all bets are off.


H/T to Tom Hilton.

Just because I don’t understand it doesn't mean I don’t enjoy. And, as a Pisces, I enjoy the fishy sentiment of the Carpy Christmas carol or Halibut Holiday song.

Holy crap, Randal! Where do you find these videos? Hilarious!

Randal Graves said...

LBR, you should get a job writing weird cards for Hallmark. Fish heads, fish heads, roly poly fish heads, eat them up, yum!

ME, I didn't, Tom Hilton did. And I'm glad he did, because nothing says Christmas like the slimy denizens of the deep, I mean, my wingnut family. Muahahahaha!

La Belette Rouge said...

Thanks Randal! Your kind job suggestion reminds me of a professor I had for a screenwriting course who told me I was better suited for naming screenplays than writing them--only your suggestion was well meaning and complimentary:-) And, think of all the free greeting cards I could get.

Actually, I once had a dream of creating greeting cards that really reflect how people feel about their families. Like a fathers day card for the absent father or maybe a birthday card for a mother who will hate whatever you give her for her birthday. “When you care enough to tell the truth…”

Randal Graves said...

Ouch. Precisely why I'm scared to death of showing anything I've written, people like that haughty prof.

Now that's an excellent idea! The recipient will never precisely be sure whether the card is meant to be tongue-in-cheek or deathly serious. And given how much the modern American prefers being rude to others, you'll sell millions!

Whilst at work, I decided to play your video. Although I started it on mute, the pictures of the fishy creatures convinced me to go balls to the wall and unmute. Before I knew it, there were people popping in my office to see what the hell I was doing. The gathering of watchers grew and soon the video made it's way around. So in a sense you are a bit famous OH Fish Man.

And a Happy Halibut to you too!

Randal Graves said...

Colleen, um, thanks? Well, beats being famous for being an evil Republican, so I shouldn't complain.

Tomcat, Merry Mackerel!

ME, I didn't, Tom Hilton did.

Actually, Generik found it and e-mailed it to me; all I can take credit for is knowing Randal would appreciate it.

They should film this story and play it every year at Christmastime.

Colleen said...

Mr. Hilton, I can just see the yearly office gathering around the christmas tree or perhaps the christmas fish singing the fish noel song for years to come.

Have you ever heard Shoggoth on the Roof. Brilliant! A Cthulu musical set to the music from Fiddler on the Roof. Sweet!

Randal Graves said...

No, I haven't. The HPL Historical Society did that, right? I need to track that down!

Becca said...

Go here to check out one of the songs...If I Were a Deep One. It's set to the tune of If I Were a Rich Man. Great Stuff.
