Do Canadians Really Have Flapping Heads?

20130322 Windscreen Washer Flappy Mouth Face 150x150 Do Canadians Really Have Flapping Heads?Ever watched South Park?  You’ll have noticed all Canadians have flapping heads and beady eyes.  When I first landed on Planet Earth I knew nothing about humans and after I watched South Park I truly believed all Canadians had flappy mouths.  But then I discovered this primitive thing you call the “Internet” and found out that it’s all lies.

This picture was sent in by Jen.  It’s a windscreen washer and it reminds me of flappy-mouthed Canadians in South Park.  It’s a good one.  In the words of Borat, “I liiiike”.

Thekla

20101031 Thekla Numerous Faces 300x225 TheklaEver been to the Thekla in Bristol? Have you ever noticed the faces with their mouths open on the top deck? The Thekla is an interesting concept and it’s a very popular venue. I have been in there a few times and it has always been absolutely rammed. The club nights are not really my scene but it’s worth going for the experience. Funnily enough, I never knew they did gigs in there until recently, when I saw The Bluetones were playing there. Sadly I had missed it by several months. I used to love The Bluetones – and still do. In fact, I love the whole era of Britpop. Ahhh… nostalgia.

Pharmacy in the sky

20100917 Bottelinos Bedminster 300x225 Pharmacy in the sky I was on my way to Asda the other day and and looked up at the sky and noticed the tower of Bottelino’s Italian restaurant looking down at me. The slightly open round window makes it look like he’s got his mouth open, exposing his tongue. In the Netherlands they have stone or wooden figures with their mouths open outside pharmacies. They are called gapers. It kind of reminded me of that. Maybe it’s the entrance to a big pharmacy in the sky.
