It is the ultimate manifestation of horror...

Although I agree with much of the thrust of the essay, I also can say that I have had direct contact with the utter vastness and I feel more sane because of it, not less. I do not see the Lovecraftian mythos critters as being in the least bit cute. But not horrible either. More like awful, in the original sense of that word — filling one with awe. The essay gives one fair warning of the intensity of connecting with these energies/entities. Always good to disabuse folks of cuteness before they get into waters which are far deeper than they can possible imagine.

Fully agree with you on the awe factor. I read Lovecraft when I was eleven or so, and it was as best as I can describe it, a deep jolt. And I was hooked.
I love the irony of the plushy, but when I heard about Cthulhu plushies being made with Hawaiian shirts and other things, my mind was like, no, no, no... that I could not correlate. There is a limit. Chibi often goes too far.
