Avatar Not What You Think

Look at this:


What you’re looking at is a blackboard located at my local IKEA which I recently visited. Now I am mostly an open-minded person but I am quite averse to worshiping characters of any kind, whether religious, fictional, good or evil, when I am browsing home furnishings.

I can only imagine the kind of chaos that would ensue if someone got down on their knees and started to worship a fallen angel near the sofa department. That I do not want. If I am going to spend two hours of my life on a Saturday afternoon slowly walking around the various sections of IKEA I would rather try to avoid a small group of people clustered around a statue or photo, with fire in their eyes, bowing up and down.

Luckily for me, they were done by the time I passed.

Do yourself a favour; steer clear of furniture-loving Satanists.

  • There’s a bit too much Satanism in Ikea these days, if you ask me. It might appeal to the heretic market in Sweden but it’s a turn off for me.

  • I will say this, though, the satanic candle range is lovely. They burn for ages and the fragrance is delightful.

  • Yeah, the aroma of searing flesh can be lovely to unwind after a stressful day in the office.

  • Let’s see. Why not utilise your circus of mice, currently on hiatus until the summer months, to doodle pentangles and crosses on the Beans? Or the candles? They’re good at drawing.

  • They are but you can’t tell them what to draw. They go where their artistic muse takes them. Don’t stifle their creativity.
