My nickname is Mr. Brightside, but I get that it takes all kinds to make the world go 'round. So cynics unite! And relish skateboard artist Todd Francis' "'Tis the Season for Suicide" ornament series. Yep, for every merry maker who thinks this is the most wonderful time of the year, there is an equally disgruntled grinch who thinks it's more suited for tossing back the pills and the booze and passing out forever under the mistletoe.

Well. As long as none of them drop their Watson 349s into my eggnog, I guess all I can say is A Very Merry Self-Destruction to ya!

Francis' set of 4 ornaments paint suicide favorites Pills and Booze, High Explosives, Self Inflicted Gunshot, and A Noose and a Chair onto shatterproof (ironic they cannot be destroyed) white acrylic globes measuring 3-1/4" in diameter. The backs of one ornament also includes the "'Tis the Season for Suicide" catchphrase and graphic.

Todd Francis has been creating iconic skateboard graphics for companies such as Antihero, Element, Spitfire, New Deal, and Stereo since 1993. He is known for juxtaposing bleak humor with environmental and political concerns. Oh, so this suicide thing is all part of his message? Maybe how we should cherish life and appreciate what we have instead of going all gloom and doom when the holidays hit? Phew. I thought he was just being weird.
