News, but not the serious kind
The worst wax job in the world?
Blog Guy, I need to make use of your legendary travel advice. I really enjoy visiting bad wax museums, but I fear I’ve exhausted the list.
Bad? I think that pretty much describes all wax museums.
Nonsense, some are much worse than others. Have you been to Lonnie’s House of Wax, in Beech Grove, Indiana? Their latest figure is either Mamie Eisenhower or Justin Bieber, you take your pick.
Okay, I guess you have a point. Have you been to the one in Tehran?
No! They have a bad wax museum?
Awful. How’s this for what appears to be a World War II tableau? Adolf Hitler, Winston Churchill, Franklin Roosevelt and, from Russia…
Nope. Vladimir Putin.
Wow! Now that’s bizarre! What about the quality of the figures themselves?
Roosevelt resembles Captain Von Trapp in “The Sound of Music.” Hitler looks kind of like Basil Fawlty, if Basil wore a swastika on his sleeve.
And is the Putin figure in a World War II uniform?
Of course not. He’s wearing a judo outfit.
I am SO there, Blog Guy! Thanks for saving my summer vacation!
