Bring me the head (and skin) of Matthew Newton

Lots of great submissions this week. Enough to squander two good ones on one post. Meccano encountered a trailer full of animal skins in Orrong Rd. Where else? (In fact the car was full of skins too.) We have bears? And one from The Cookster who saw a head. In a car.  Looks like the guy in Underbelly who plays Terry Clark. With the same range of emotions. (Comparison shot included).

We have bears?

We have bears?

Bring me the head...

    the hair is more realistic on the mannequin
    (is Matthew borrowing one of his father’s wigs?)

    don’t upset him, he might thump you

    I have one question for each: why?

    I found a much better picture of Mr Newton Jnr here:

    Hmmm. Wasn’t it Cookster who has also brought us other weird mannequin monstrosities??

    If so, I suspect he has slaked his unnatural desires on them at home, tossed them on the verge, and then waited until they’re elsewhere to photograph them.

      Do you think we’ll see Jungle Jane after his next mate’s birthday, DFOC ?


    • Cookster says:

      Outrage, I am stalked by manequins, as I am also stalked by those damnable daylight saving zombies.

      The weird thing about this head was that the rest of the car was quite normal. I can imagine the Newton head looking quite at home in some jam packed hippy wagon festooned with rainbow flags, but this was a neat and tidy people mover in suburban Wembley.

      What interested me the most was why in a car with so much room he had the head jammed in against the window?

      Crazy fucking western suburbanites.


      • David Cohen says:

        I’m disappointed you chose to let that notorious clown The Lazy Aussie break the pic, Cookster, instead of the Post.

        But I am a forgiving union identity – I am, after all, concerned with your mental well-being this week: how are you coping from having to adjust your clocks?

        Matt Birney almost has me convinced it will be a close vote, with the righteous emerging victorious.

    ‘Twould not surprise me, Snuff. He lives in Wembley, after all.

    I’ve seen that head before (the one in the car, not Moonface Jr). Two gents inexplicably brought heads on sticks to a Gerling/Machine Gun Fellatio gig in Freo about 5/6 years ago, and that, I’m sure, was one of them.

    It appears the gag still has legs.


  6. Bento says:

    Hello? Is this thing on?

    Legs, people! It’s a disembodied head!

    I’m wasting gold on you pigs.


    • shazza says:

      Thats the problem with this medium, you dont hear the laughs and so dont get the non verbal feedback (must kill LA some days). So here goes-
      Hee hee hee, haa ha ha ooohh, hee hee ha ha ha. Legs! He said legs, and it doesnt have any legs coz its a head…without legs. Hahhhh hee hee hee ho ho ho. Love your work Bento.


    • Handler says:

      Umm, pearls? Or are pearls only for swine, not pigs?

      I wondered long and hard about that one. Even checked the mannequin photo again to make sure it didn’t have a billiard ball in its mouth.


  7. Bento says:

    Thank you, I’ll be here all week. Try the veal.
