Mannequin, anyone?

This “Articles Wanted” ad has been in our little local paper for weeks, and it cracks me up every time I see it:

“Mannequin. Must have a head and preferably arms and legs.”

Must have HEAD”?!? I guess they aren't in the market for an Ann Boleyn mannequin, then!

Since the ad has been running for weeks, I'm guessing that there aren't a lot of mannequins available out here in farm country. On the other hand, it's not like Helen and Bonnie are being terribly picky. I mean, limbs ARE optional! I can't begin to imagine what they are going to do if they find this mannequin. Maybe they're two elderly spinster (isn't that an awful word! Nothing wrong with being single. But I like the alliteration.) sisters who are a tad lonely and need a dummy for euchre.

And check out poor Brenda. The 70s were an INTERESTING time for fashion!


  1. Perhaps they intend to film a sequal
    to Lars and the Real Girl?

  2. I was thinking maybe he saw that old 80's show and thought that they really came alive!
