in the fade


  1. We went to a wax museum today. It was right there on Las Ramblas and we said what the fuck, let’s go in.
I’d never been to a wax museum before. It was downright creepy while being cool in a freaky as hell kind of way. I kept thinking some of the wax people were living statues because they looked so real and I would stare them down then get freaked out when I would swear I saw them blink.
So all the politicians and aristocrats and writers and explorers were interesting and kind of neat to see.
Then there was this.
I stared at this display slack jawed for a full minute before I uttered the words “What in the wide, wide world of Tatooine is this shit?”
Han looks like he aged about 20 years.Luke looks like he had a sex operation and aged about 20 years.Leia looks like she’s been rode hard and put away - 20 years ago.And Chewie? He looks like someone had a 20 year old wax replica of the Cowardly Lion and nowhere to put it.
Let’s not even get into the fact that E.T. was just hanging out in the middle of this scene.
Worst wax museum sculptures ever or worst wax museum sculptures EVER? 
[on edit: I think Han might be an old Thomas Jefferson statue and Leia is Joan Crawford and Luke is a blonde Dorothy Hamill]
