Subversive Baby Gift

Obviously, I have a thing for words. If I didn't, I probably wouldn't spend so much time immersed in them, writing for you people. So, when I saw these Mark McGinnis alphabet prints, I immediately saw them for what they are: completely subversive child's room decor.

The way I see it, if you're the type of person who has Disney murals all over your kid's room (or has giftees on your list who do), why the hell are you reading this blog? The Toad hates cute, Disneyesque stuff on walls. But she loves these prints. If you know someone currently ready to explode with child, a piece of room decor is a fabulous gift. When all the adorable onesies have been pooped upon, the crib bedding destroyed, the bottle warmer discarded, that art you bought will probably still grace the walls. Naturally, there are some letter choices way more subversive that the ones pictured at right (how about "D" for "drive-by" or "X" for "xenophobic"). But just think: it's never too early for a child to understand the word "lobotomy."

At $160, these prints are hardly a bargain. But they're way more memorable than chipping in for a share in an obscenely priced stroller. At The Future Perfect.

L for lobotomy? What was the artist on when he did this?
