Greetings, My Name is Tiki

…as in Tiki Torch

Dear human beings,

Hello. My name is Tiki.

My fellow torches and I are a bit distressed. We were unaware of the disastrous predicament we found ourselves in.

We are inanimate objects for purchase at places like Home Depot, Lowes, Pier One, Bed Bath and Beyond. We are purchased for the purpose of fun filled evenings with family and friends.

My fellow torches and I were shocked when we found ourselves at an evening function, thinking we would be part of a luau or BBQ, or possibly a family reunion, as the citronella burned into the evening sky, keeping the miscellaneous bugs at bay.

First, I want to be the first to apologize for our appearance at this gathering. In no way do we advocate white supremacists activities. What they want to do in the dark is their business.

As you can tell by this picture, we were all rounded up, and we whispered to one another that maybe we were attending a party. We soon found out we were sadly mistaken.

We believe that America is made up of many colors, many ethnicities, and many cultures. That’s what makes this country great. My fellow torches even celebrates the LGBTQIA community by this picture below.

Even our company who makes and designs us tweeted their displeasure at our appearance at the rally…

“ to help family and friends connect with each other” is a wonderful statement. Unfortunately, for this event, the people holding us were connecting in a very malicious way.

Once again, we are inanimate objects. And our company and my fellow torches are very sorry.

However, if there is a torch you seek, to get your own personal message across, then may I suggest this one…

Its a lovely torch, is it not?

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

Tiki Torch
