i think it might have had something to do with this twisted book of children’s poetry (not intended for children) that he wrote a while back. One of the poems went:
“The boy with nails in his eyes tried to put up his aluminum tree
it looked kind of funny
because he couldn’t really see.”
All the poems are that sick and twisted. Unbelieveable that he would expect someone to actually find an aluminum christmas tree on christmas, though. Weird.
