Place of Origin: Hobby Lobby
Rib Count: 4
Celebrity Look-alike: Ron Howard's brother Clint
Description: 10 problems I have with this skeleton..
1. Its meaningless markings on the forehead
2. Its overly cartoonish appearance
3. Its beady yellow eyes
4. Its "turtleneck" rib cage
5. That shade of violet paint
6. The fact that it looks like a child
7. The 'm' on its pelvis
8. Its pelvis
9. Its chubby cheeks
10. It almost caused me to be late with my October 10th posting.
Additional Info: He's another "bendy," big whoop.
Cause of Death: Who cares
Rating: 3.1

I'm sensing you don't like this one too much.

Pigmy skeletons are weird.

I love this little guy. His blue highlights (veins!) all give him the look of the Michelin Tire guy's little undead relative.

Cool.

You could have continued that list for several more points.

• Lips
• 8 fingers
• Oreo residue on teeth
• bloody nose
• Double wrist-swells

rozum- that's for sure. The only good thing I have to say about him is that he was a gift from my darling wife. (this was before she grew familiar with my subtle taste in skeletons)

smurfwreck- oh, good call. I should have picked up on that.

michael- I guess we must agree to disagree. Careful not to be lured in by his "friendly" grin and wave. All his plans are bad ones. I do like the Michelin connection. (and I just glanced at your blog.. great work. I must explore s'more.)

Travis- ain't it the truth. I heartily agree with your list. It could go on and on.
