Best quote:

"That's the attraction of all thins tiki: Artificats from a mythical paradise -- Easter Island drink mugs, pineapple-shaped patio lights are authentically inauthentic in their exoticism."

Whe! I'm glad they told me!


They left out:
spending endless hours shopping for tiki's, taking vacations that center around tiki's, and only doing activities that involve drinking & tiki's.

I think that covers it?
