Happy Buddhas

This year, Chinese New Year starts on January 23. Here is a group of happy Buddhas ready to help usher in the new year. How is it that supposedly cute objects sometimes take on a vaguely threatening quality? This seems to be especially true when they gather in crowds, like these Buddhas. Are they laughing because they know what is ahead for us in this Year of the Dragon? The Buddhas are not talking.
