My original plan for this post was a silly little holiday essay, something to give us a laugh, something flip.
I love flip. I excel at flip. But these pictures elicit such a deep discomfort. LIFE never published them, and there’s no date or context for the party. The mood seems, er, cheerful and the colors are seasonally bright; I’m just not sure I’ve ever seen something so apparently mundane manifest with such implied menace.
Don’t worry. I’ll write you something flip tomorrow.
