THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH HAVING A (CHRISTMAS) TREE AS A FRIEND
If you’re a fan of numbers, you probably are already familiar with FiveThirtyEight. Back in 2014, they did a fascinating analysis of Bob Ross’s The Joy of Painting. Turns out there are a statistically significant number of happy little trees. There are “snow-covered mountains” in 26% of his on-air works, and generic snow in 19%.
The image on this stocking is a great example of a painting that qualifies for “snow-covered mountain” but not “snow” since the foreground appears to capture a summer scene. It also features Bob Ross’s smiling face ready to exhort you to “get a little crazy.” Which in this context probably means eat holiday candy for breakfast.
