Manson Marionettes

Hellzbelz sends us this photo from a 1960's art exhibit in Germany. In this case are marionettes,
many of whom are the Manson Family. I recognize at least 6 of them. Timothy Leary, too.

Something has been created that is even creepier than the wax figures? Jeeeeez....Those things are freakier than a clown doll any day of the week. Uh...

As if my mental library doesn’t have enough choices to torture me in my sleep, I can take comfort in adding this creation from Germany. That’s a perfect match from those fun loving, folks who gave us Nihilism, concentration camps and Nena. Now I’ll dread napping or opening cabinets and drawers out of fear that some mini-Manson, in old man pants, will order an even more diminutive Squeaky to lash out with a cocktail sword. Thanks Germany, luv ya, oh I just Luuuuv ya! Kissy, kissy, muah, muah.

Yes, if I was a nihilist in a concentration camp, I would be insulted.

Hey DOC SIERRA wherever you are, sorry about "you know what." Patty jumped the gun just now, but will repost later this week.

Is Squeaky wearing a pair of Doc Martens 1460s?

Not that it matters, or that I would know anything about Doc Martens, but there appears to be some sort of pseudo-sexual ambiguous undertones here.

I can’t imagine something from Germany being that warped or perverse. I’m probably just over reacting.

The Family as the Thunderbirds. Pretty horrifying.

Hey Farf, I have owned a few Volkswagens and eaten a lot of sauerkraut in my day. You haven't lived until you have eaten a soft pretzel while drinking a giant stein (or 3) of Hofbrau! Oops, gotta go, the dachshund wants in!
Just kidding. I don't have a dachshund. :)
