Give the gift of heads

Two worst worthy items in curio shop William Street (Turnstyles) . A carving celebrating decapitation, and a whole roll of Boans wrapping paper. I was going to ask the price, but the shop person was absorbed in playing solitaire on the counter. The Boans paper would see you through a decade of worst Christmases and Birthdays. Old buffers will love it, especially those that called it Bo-ans.

    I am, actually, curious as to the price of the Boans wrapping paper.
    This is the place near the Horseshoe Bridge?

    (Those heads remind me of the Bob Hawke drink dispenser that I almost purchased off eBay a few years back, which looks a bit like this: http://i.ebayimg.com/19/!B5R1Lc!CGk~$%28KGrHqUOKisEyZpfQLuSBMt!kdTq+!~~_35.JPG)

  2. With “Cortez the killer” playing gently in the background, and that Boans paper is a guaranteed sale for a old duffer.

    “Old Duffer” not “Buffer”.

    1. The fact that the warrior is wearing an actual cloth loincloth would suggest that the statue has been finished in the altogether.

    2. The severed heads look not too traumatized by the experience–downright serene, in fact.

    3. The wrapping paper, to my eyes, is not a worst. Does the department store still exist? What is the gothic towered building depicted in the lower left hand side?

    I remember that paper. I think my Mum still has some, she never throws anything away!

    ah, I love being so young that I have no idea whatsoever what the relevance of that wrapping paper is.
