Cul de Sac by Richard Thompson for December 02, 2009
Alice: Mom! I know what I want for Christmas! It's in this catalog! Mom: Let's see. Alice: It's this fountain thing! It's got monsters and fish and babies spitting water! It'd look so great in my room! I'm going to tell Santa about this! Mom: Honey, that's a National Geographic article on "Big Ugly Fountains: Eyesores of the Baroque."
