Florid: Elaborately or excessively ornamented
Every day without fail, each person of the town places one thing from their home onto the doll. The doll was large, large enough to be able to hold everything that the town didn’t want. The town had built the doll such that they wouldn’t have to throw their garbage away in uncouth manner. All sorts of garbage was placed on the doll, and no matter what kind of garbage was on it, the doll would accept. The doll soon lost its form, and it was no longer able to be called a doll. It was indistinguishable from a corpse of a beast. But the town’s people continued to put their garbage on the doll, unable to break from tradition. Eventually, one day the doll was overfilled, and it’s parts began tearing. Little cracks began forming, and the garbage seeped into the material of the doll. The doll was soon filled with garbage and its form was not biologically indistinguishable from a corpse of a beast. The doll then toppled from the weight of all the garbage, and crashed in the middle of the town. The filth that the doll bore seeped into the ground and formed a large crater in the town. The town’s people, unable to stop tradition, decided to continue putting their garbage on the doll, but as more weight was added, the hole got deeper. The town’s people became ebullient over this revelation. They now had more room to put their garbage.
