I'd love to find a way to reproduce these in resin or ceramic (sperm whale teeth being illegal and/or incredibly expensive nowadays.




Sabu the coconut boy

I got this from Szandora when Thee Swank Bastards played at FI. I know it's just plastic but I'll treasure it just as much as you would the sperm whale teets.
Notice the black tape on the top. It was one of her pasties.

FYI, Bowers has Target-sponsored first Sunday free for the budget minded. I also noticed a free Thursday sign but didn't catch the details.

I've had this on my calendar since it opened. What better time to visit than on the way to Tiki Oasis! Can't wait to check it out on Thursday. And thanks for the note on snapping photos. I'd love to get pictures of some of these!

The teeth in that piece are from the Pygmy sperm whale. Regular sperm whale teeth are much fatter around: http://www.boneclones.com/KO-213.htm
