Saying Merry Christmas, the John Waters Way

Guest Blog: Independent filmmaker John Waters offered season's greeting in his inimitable style

I was X-ed off John Waters’ Christmas card mailing list for being too naughty by publishing my book, “Low Budget Hell,” but I still treasure his old cards.

This is not exactly a card, but an actual, full-size blown-glass working Christmas tree ornament, with a rubber roach inside. It’s the only non-paper card greeting he ever sent.

Now that his mailing list tops 2,000 names, of course it would be too expensive to send such a wonderful trinket.

I haven’t seen photos of it published, but it should be admired by the world, so here is a Christmas gift to all the fans.
