Cultural Phenomenon, Baby Yoda, Is Now a Wood Carving
Ever since Disney+ launched and the first episode of The Mandalorian dropped, baby Yoda has become a massive cultural phenomenon. It’s ridiculous…..ridiculously CUTE, amirite?!?!?! I’ve seen baby Yoda pop up on college football logo t-shirts, photos of him dressed up like a Christmas elf, and of course, memes galore.
But, I fear this obsession with this mythical creature has reached an outright fever pitch. This sonofagun hasn’t been around for two months yet, and he’s already popping up at those flea market type deals as a damn wood carving.

Why stop there? Why not just make an entire totem pole of nothing but baby Yodas.
Low key, though, these wood carving stations were always my favorite when I used to go to these things as a kid. You just never knew what you were going to see – lions, tigers, bears, Abraham Lincoln. It might as well have been like Ripley’s Believe It or Not. Those wood carvers missed a huge opportunity in charging people just to look at their work. They would’ve had every dime I made as a child. Well, that’s not feasible. I didn’t attend wood carving festivals often enough as a kid. That was foolish – I don’t know what I was doing. Just trying to hammer the point home that I really fucking appreciate wood carvings.
And, for what it’s worth, I truly appreciate this infantile Yoda. We don’t know anything about him/her/it/them. This little creature just showed up and stole our hearts. This is one obsession that I, for one, am perfectly fine with.
