Tumblin’ Dice

“To this day I can’t get aroused until I see a pair of rubber dice hanging from the mirror”
Johnny Carson American TV Host, 1925-2005

I didn’t realise that there were still furry dice, particularly not loaded ones like these. Come to think of it, why were there ever furry dice? What did they do? What were they for? Why has this one got two sides of twos? The only non mystery is why someone would throw them out with the garbage in Bayswater.

Update. So perhaps they were supposed to be stylised testicles, in which case, perhaps they have been supplanted by car nurries, as snapped by Forkboy below. I don’t want to know if worsters are photographing while driving. Though blue, they do seem a little small, however, the only time I’ve ever seen under the bonnet of one of these 60s falcons, the tiny donk was cowering in the corner like a little girl, so perhaps they are to scale. At the time I had a 1970 Valiant which had the small 5 litre V8.

  5. To increase the length of your penis I’ve always found it useful to soak the furry dice in bottled french water and then tie them to a flaccid todger for at least 1 hour a day. That’s the true purpose of these delightful creations.

    The creative wellspring of Bassendean, you say, TLA ? Birthplace of Dave Faulkner, Rolf Harris and Harry Butler, I think. Flick’s work with the Victims and Gurus is possibly less familiar than Alice Cooper’s version of Sun Arise,

    which Harry and Rolf co-wrote, and which the latter recorded with musicians from Arnhem Land back in 1960.

    Although this is clearly the version he recorded with George Martin, and released in 1962 to coincide with the Commonwealth Games in Perth, they just don’t make clips like this anymore.

    @ 18 Thanks for that, Vic. It’s taken a while, but I may finally understand Meatloaf’s “Paradise by the dashboard light”, which I will mercifully not link to. Alice Cooper’s “Sun Arise” was bad enough.

    Understanding the Loaf himself, may still take some time. Even more impenetrable is the mystery of “Bat out of Hell” coming in at number 9 in Aunty’s inaugural My Favourite Album. Onya Oz.

    Curiously, although Ellen Foley is recorded on “Paradise by the dashboard light”, another woman, Karla DeVito, was used for the video and for performances. This would also happen for Meatloaf’s “I’d Do Anything for Love (but I Won’t Do That)”, where Dana Patrick mimed to Lorraine Crosby’s vocals. Obviously Ellen and Dana were a tad chubby and less photogenic.
