Lovecraftian Thing a Day No.282: Mesoamerican Three-Eyed Cthulhu Idol
I recently received this unsolicited item with a covering letter - supposedly from Prof. Ferdinand C. Stanley of Miskatonic University. According to the missive, the object was uncovered at a Mesoamerican site (location undisclosed) during what appear to be an archaeological expedition of dubious legality. Apparently the professor has had some trouble sleeping since he came into possession of the idol. Well, some things are occulted because they ought not to be revealed, and in this instance it seems that the good Professor has been digging in places where he should not have digged - and in doing so has called up that which he lacks the power to put down. I believe there is a moral in there somewhere. In any case, I suspect that there is little that can be done now for the Professor - indeed, I prefer not to dwell on the awefulness of his fate. But for the sake and sanity of the rest of humanity (for what little time we have left on this little backwater planet), I will do everything in my power to ensure that this strange little three-eyed idol shall henceforth be forever hidden from human sight.
