What A Crack Up.

Wednesday, 13 January 2010

When Planetross says there are a lot of bums near the train station, he’s not kidding.  I mean, just look at this maasterpiece.  The locals fondly refer to it as:


Located at the rear end of the plaza, you pass the gas station.  It’s on the backside.  For best results, photograph this statue during a full moon while standing upwind.

The monument already had a lot of cracks in it by the time it was installed. It’s been said that the sculptor always gets behind in his work.

Not trying to be cheeky; it tookus no time at all to come up with these terrible buns. Butt I digrass… The title of this work o fart?
The Acrobutts.

The End.

P.S.  I suppose that the steel hoops protecting the sculpture represent the Rings around Uranus.  Yeah, I know.  I just had to say it.

[Planetross found it near his house, kinda;  kudos to S.Le who provided the name for the stack ‘o glutes.  Possibly related posts herehere and here.]

Paul McCartney’s Head Retrieved From Bum

Tuesday, 28 October 2008

…or “Lucky Bum Gets Head From Beatle“… or “Tramp Admires Sir Paul’s Bust“… or “Abbey Road Execs Accept Hobo’s Offer For Head.” (Your choice of headlines.  Way too many puns and obnoxious innuendi for this True Story, and I admit that I’m completely shameless for jumping on this one with both feet. I promise you it might not happen again.)

“The Magical Mystery Tour is over – the missing bust of Paul McCartney has been found by a rough sleeper in Reading who mistook it for a Halloween mask. Tramp Anthony Silva discovered the wax head while sleeping by dustbins near Reading railway station last Friday.

“After Anthony found the auction lot – using it as a pillow for four nights – he jumped the trains to the Abbey Road music studios in London… The mask’s authenticity was then confirmed.”
