I apologize for taking such a long vacation from blogging. I won't go into any of the reasons since they are all lame. But I'm back to blogging and starting with a post in a new category, which I'm calling "Wrong on So Many Levels."

It's something you see, or hear, or read -- it can be an object, a behavior, a thought, an opinion, etc. -- that is just so wrong on so many levels that you can't even begin to articulate it and would, actually, rather not.

Here is my first entry. I saw one of these on the dashboard of a car this morning and I'm ashamed to say that it was on the dashbooard of a car driving into an NIH employee parking lot. It's called a "Bobble Buddha."

Please feel free to make your own contributions via comments or e-mail.

You're ashamed?!? Hey, if I had one of those it would be proudly displayed on my car dashboard. But then I once grew chia pet seeds on a little terra cotta Buddha so I'm totally heathen.

Buddhism, like all great things, is both cursed and honored by popularization. You can say that imitation is a form of flattery, what about kitsch? PS-haven't told you about my "Obama as Boxer" t-shirts I bought at 19th and K. Wrong on so many levels but . . . seductive, too. The lure of kitsch.
