Thanks to Josh of Through a Glass, Darkly blog for the link to the plush toy versions of Cthulhu. Bizarre stuff. But the Santa Cthulhu actually made me giggle:
The jingly bells added to the end of the tentacles is a touch of GEEEEEEnius.
(Did they base Davy Jones on Cthulhu? Look at them squiggly face things! Maybe he's "dread" Cthulhu cause he's got his own face version of "locks")
The wikipedia article on Cthulhu has this as the chant used by followers of the Dread One: "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn"
I think Lovecraft had a huge laugh writing out that chant, which, clearly, no one with only one tongue can pronounce.
