Horror Celebrity Season’s Greetings

I’m so old I remember when O.J. Simpson was nothing more than the best broken-field runner the NFL ever knew who made occasional appearances in TV shows and movies as That Delightfully Clean and Articulate Negro Most White People Wouldn’t Mind Playing Golf With. He was the original Oreo, not a speck of the ghetto about him.

In 2014 he’s 20 years into a career as a real-life horror icon. We behold this mid- to late-1970s-era Christmas card, cringe and giggle.

O.J. looks a smidge uncomfortable holding this plate but we know in due time he’ll carve him some turkeys.
