Mom's Kitsch

Twice in recent days I've had the uncanny experience of seeing my Mom's kitsch objects playing significant roles in television programs.

Watching the episode "Remedial Chaos Theory" of Community, a Norwegian troll doll is Pierce's vengeance "gift" to Troy. I am pretty certain this is exactly the same wooden troll figure we used to have on our fireplace mantel.

Then, a trailer for the new program Grimm comes on, and a woman stoops to pick up the "Keeping Time" Hummel figurine from a path in the woods, and suddenly she's whisked away by a beast of some sort.
