Date: 2009-06-01, 5:46PM PDT
Beautiful hand carved Hawaiian Tiki Statue. Hand made from Oregon Cedar. Approximately 2ft tall by 1ft across. Weighs approximately 16 pounds. $150.00 OBO MAKE US AN OFFER!
Me: Is this a real tiki? or fake tiki?
Corrach: Its hand carved eastern oregon pine. Is that what you were asking?
Me: That is good, but has it been properly blessed in any authentic tiki rituals? (DO NOT MOCK ME)
Corrach: No, we are sorry but it has not been blessed. It was made by a family member. We are from hawaii so we understand. It has only gone from my relative to me.
Me: Oh well this is okay. Family owned and handcrafted tikis are pure and thus require no blessings. Especially good is that it is genuine hawaiian. why do you hope to get rid of this wonderful tiki? Has he not brought goodness and strength to your life? (I HOPE HE HAS)
Corrach: you speak very true words, so good in fact that you have made us question our reasons for selling it. It really isn’t something that can be sold – we are going to keep it as it has brought us luck and love. Sorry about that but thank you for the education. Aloha.
Me: ALOHA FRIENDS. MAYBE ONE DAY WE WILL SHARE A MEAL ON THE BEACHES OF HAWAII.
NAMASTE & ALOHA,
Corrach: Thank you friend – Aloha.
Now, I’m not sure if Corrach is putting me on but if not, then this a momentous occasion. It’s the first time I’ve shamed someone into no longer selling their item.
Take that capitalism!
