So Ive been rubbing Mr Sheene on my head for the last few hours and nothings happening.
This is either false advertising or I'm doing something wrong.

Such a simple little thing but I like it. I agree on the movie idea.

baggelboy- Mr Sheene, is, in fact, a Rutles song (sung by Eric Idle) and can be heard athttp://www.rutlemania.org/rutles5.html

baggelboy said...

Ah ha. I understand.
Now I'm rubbing a guy called Barry on my head and it's working.

Simple, but great! And your photo always makes me laugh...in a good way.

HARDWAX said...

I love the simple beauty in this piece. The elegance of each straight line, and the little spongy thingy wiping away the dirt {or the face} to make room for the clean, but most of all, it's not a tar pit, that's my favorite part. LOL cool!

Ian T. said...

Really existentialist - must... not... think... about this... too much...

Gabrielle said...

If not for the lovely verse to amuse and delight me, I might have left your blog fitfully crying because I prefer to not dwell upon this kind of stuff.
