Georgie, come out of that nasty old coma!

December 9, 2008

My opinion of wax museums is no secret. I fail to get the entertainment value of life-size statues of famous people who look like they were recently embalmed.

Whatever, these photos here are so freakish they skid across the line into surrealism. We see live women dressed as angels, flirting with a wax George Clooney, who is dressed as a Santa.

I personally enjoy thinking that these women, who don’t get out much, thought they were posing with the REAL George Clooney. I think they were told that the actor was in a coma as a result of a traumatic Christmas goose accident, and that if they flirted with him he might emerge from it.

This is the only story line that works to explain these photos in my universe.

News Flash Bob. That is the real George Clooney. He was replaced with a wax figure years ago.

It is George Clooney! He’s been like that ever since he was told they didn’t want him back for the final chapter of ER!
