We don't know about you, but we get so sick of throwing the same ornaments on the tree every year: gold stars, glittery Santas, blah, blah, blah. What we really need is a silver fetus on our tree. Thankfully, The Flaming Lips are to the holiday decor rescue.
Pitchfork, the indie music Web site popular with hipsters (and their hipster mullets) everywhere has reported The Lips are offering a pewter Christmas tree ornament in the shape of a 3-inch, "trembling" bambino. You can check the ornament out on The Lips' Web site and even get an introduction to the little guy by front man Wayne Coyne. Wearing a festive sweater with skulls, Coyne explains that the Silver Trembling Fetus ornament "is rumored to give off vibrations that help all humans progress toward an intelligence explosion."
Whatever. We just like that it's shiny. For big Lips fans, it's even stamped with the year and the band name. But Coyne had the Pitchfork guys at "vibrations."
"As if we needed another reason to buy a Silver Trembling Fetus ornament from The Flaming Lips," reported Pitchfork. "Baby Jesus would be so proud."
