Agreed that tacky is relative. I like, and have always liked, a lot of things now associated with steampunk, BUT I do NOT identify as steampunk. And even though I'm not that much into clowns I DO kinda like that.
Haha. I must be really tacky because I just bought TWO! I was trying to incorporate a clown theme this year--they glow green which is cool, I wish I was mechanically inclined to get them to be plug powered.
