Above the words, ‘serving suggestion’, it shows a blue demon with flipper hands standing much too close to a worried-looking six-year-old. It gives me nightmares. I want to yell for it to get away from that child.

The creature looks like a homemade doll they discover in the serial killer’s house. Its tiny legs support a grotesque leaning body whose proportions mock earthborn life. What can the manager have thought when this came back from the art department?
