As long as we're putting up hairy guys in wedding dresses on eBay, I thought I had to share this with you all. I've already sent it to a number of TC friends, but I KNOW there are more out there who can appreciate:

* a really really really fem Porter Waggoner and Roy Acuff
* a corpse-like pasty-faced Randy Travis and Mel Tillis
* Charlie Pride with lip gloss
* a rather excellent Bocephus
* Johnny Cash that looks like both Bono and Falling James
* and hands that look, well, like they belong in a wax museum. (I dig the way most are in this Spock Live-long-and-prosper position.)

If I could scrape up the money, I could make it back in a week just by charging my friends to pose with the figures for photos.

There are TONS of pictures, but they are all pure gold. Get ready to turn down the sound; it's Dueling Banjos with an easy-listening track on top of it. Really:

That Roy Acuff really frightens me! No, I think startled would be a better word.

Carolyn Jones (aka Morticia) was a babe.

No, I didn't mean the actress who played Morticia, I just meant that the wax figure looked like there was a new "Goth-Hick" trend happening. Struck me funny.

Sheesh!

Creepy. Almost as bad as those Quizno's chupacabra monkey things.

We have a huge wax museum here in Victoria, always kinda freaked me out. Like clowns and mimes. Shudder.

You mean Falling James of Leaving Trains and Courtney Love ex-husband fame? Wow, didn't think anyone else here knew who he was.

Formika, sorry to hear we won't see you this year in Palm Springs.

VG, you'd be surprised how many people here know Falling James. I've seen Leaving Trains somewhere between 1/2 dozen & 10 times, both before & after the Prom Queen look. A quick show of hands on Leaving Trains/Falling James fans?
