Mincing Versace

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to own genuine Versace jeans? No? I found this collection of items for sale somewhat sinister for some reason. A meat mincer. Versace jeans. A medical camera. A signed picture of Take That. What can it all mean, and is Jack the world’s greatest actor? Almost seemed like a coded message to someone. At Inglewood IGA, suspiciously close to Dennis Lillee’s house.

    Dude, a Kerry King signature guitar? My Slayer T-shirt and I are moving to Perth!


  2. I wonder what is the most creative usage TWOP readers could come up with for a mincer, a pair of Versaces and a medical camera. Bring in the Gimp…

    I’m really sorry that I don’t have a home theatre or a bar. It’s almost worth renovating to have somewhere for those items to look great.


  4. That mincer would look hot in a home theatre.

    Judging by the “outback dentistry” appearance of the ad, there are folk out there keen to experience overpriced jeans, medical photography and pictures of synthetic celebrities.

    And is it just me or does a “Pre-printed autograph” sound rather pointless?

    I’ve tried to think of something witty to say, but it’s Friday afternoon and I’m coming up with nada. Suffice to say that anyone who frames the crazed look of Jack Nicholson in The Shining and also has a meat mincer is probably not entirely stable. Maybe most disturbing is the promotion of home theatres. Sicko!

    All I know is, I want inline skates. It’s been at least 10 years.


  8. Golden1 says:

    What intrigues me is that although the framed portrait of Jack Nicholson and the framed Terminator 2 memorabilia would look both “sensational” and “great” in a home theatre or bar apparently the block mounted, signed Take That poster wouldn’t. Where, pray, are we to put that?
    And just for the record, judging by the string of embarrassingly awful movies Jack Nicholson has made over the last 10 or 15 years I think we can safely answer a heart felt “NO” to the above question.


  9. The Intellectual Bogan says:

    Jack is no stranger to bad films. After all, he was in Hells Angels on Wheels very early in his career.

    I liked some of the bikes and the riding shots but the film as a whole was a turkey of Zombie Brigade proportions, without the endearing low budget Australianness.

    Wait – those are T2 laser discs!! Surely, given that laser discs were superseded about 15 minutes after they were invented, those babies have got to be worth more than $80. Those may well be the only 2 ever made.

    They would indeed look great in a bar, underneath the plates of beer batter fish & chips, to prevent marking the table.


  11. Birkette says:

    What I want to know is why have you been lurking around Inglewood, and is Bedford next?


  12. Safeway Autos, mentioned today in Vanished Worst is in Bedford, as is I think a concrete bus stop.

    Dennis Lillee doesn’t even live near Inglewood!
