It had never occured to me that there might be a "Museum of Objects Inspired by Jim Woodring Drawings"

The label said something about Incense Burner for the Ginseng Spirit, but I'm still not clear why a ginseng root should need a foreskin.

I can only speculate that these are props for a retelling of "The Pit and the Pendulum" involving Frank. Bad idea, or worst idea EVAH?

...the unscrupulous Manhog (a creature who is literally part man and part hog, typified and described by Woodring as "a lamentable father figure"

Heh. No doubt a teabagger, to boot.

Would you prefer a retelling involving Phranc?

The Pit, the Pendulum and the planarian.

The Svankmajer version is inevitably brilliant but bleak.

There was one where Manhog is taken in as a friend by a human, actually learns things and becomes fairly cultured and civilized. So, as bad as he usually is, he's head and shoulders above most teabaggers.

Oh, and according to some folks the foreskin provides some protection against PIV.

I could never figure out where the aftskin is located.

Smut Clyde said...

Also, what does it provide protection against?

That lack of imagination is EXACTLY why your annual performance reviews are so lackluster, sir.

You need to develop a strong stomach, not to mention a quick finger on the 'BACK' button, with this crowd Dusty.

"Crowd", Sir? Crowd? We, Sir, are a certified "Unruly Mob" Sir. Unruly Mob, d'ya see. Do Torches and pitchforks mean nothing, these day???
