Jimmy and Marilyn

Suggested by at least three people. The cake sign on Beaufort Street Inglewood. At least you can tell who they are. Seems like the wedding was in a war zone judging by Jimmy’s arm. Let’s hope this iconic sign will always remain. An island of not worst in Inglewood.

    Perhaps Jimmy’s missing limb was the result of a really good Bombe Alaska?
    Bwa-haha-ha-ha-har! I thank you, I’m here all week.

    Maybe it’s a spiritualist’s painting.
    You know, claiming to be made from visions-in-trance after the subjects’ death.
    James just hadn’t got around to re-attaching the spiritual remains of his arm at the time.
    Been too busy with Marilyn perhaps.

    Not TWOP – Marilyn’s smile would cheer anyone up (and there’s an idea for Alannah there too). Signs like that, when not visually offensive, are handy when giving directions.

    That sign always reminds me of those street artists that draw pictures of tourists, which end up looking a bit like the subject, yet somehow, not.

    To their credit, there are numerous opportunities for incorrect apostrophe deployment, which have been admirably resisted.

    Champagne comedy, Mr. Cohen.

  5. Yes Bento, it’s the almost but not quite that attracted me and others to this one. Not bad enough to be really bad and yet satisfyingly just missing the mark.
    David, you forgot to ad “[tap, tap] Is this thing working?”

    The look on James Dean’s face suggests he’s having second thoughts about the marriage; that maybe she’ll just leave him for some loser writer.

  9. Now that the Rudd government has made it legal this is O,K, i.e getting married to a trannie made to look like Marilyn.

    Good news about the Charles. Your fans will attend. As long as it doesn’t interfere with TWOP blogging.

    Was that the exact wording of the legislation? “Getting married to a trannie made to look like Marilyn”.

    it’s another one of those artists: “I don’t do hands or feet”

    where are her hands? rummaging in the cake for something?

    if you intended painting a mural – wouldn’t you render the wall, or at least block up the airbricks? – it looks like Jimmy Dean is eating a waffle

    LA – regret I will be overseas for several weeks, and will be unable to attend the “comedy debate for world environment day or some such crap”. It sounds like a truly worthy cause.

    Most of all, I would be very upset if I missed the Hoey heckling experience…

    Hmmm. Is the Charles really the best venue for you, LA?

    As your media advisor I strongly advise doing your shtick at one of the establishments you have covered on TWOP: the Norwood, or the Red Castle.

    Perhaps even the Hyatt, if you can bear it?

    Invite Paul Murray to the VIP/corporate box area and acres of coverage is guaranteed.

  27. Funny you should say that. Was a Nobby’s nuts promotion which included a joke competition. I was MC. Two blondes in bikinis gave out free nuts while the local denizens – to a man – did poofter jokes. Long long time ago, but I remember the beginnings to all the jokes. “There were two poofters right…”

    But were there any sons of Italian market Gardeners in the audience dressed in their latin finest and wearing enough Bling to adorn a Madonna to be branded “Poofters” though ?
