Who Nose


This photo was taken on May 12, 2019 at 12:27 PM.

The location was in my new (to me) dwelling in Beltsville, Maryland.

The "Take It!" came with the visit to an upscale hardware store near where I used to live. While there I saw this item on display which completely took me by surprise and for me - made resistance to purchase impossible.  It was sold in a number of different colors which I suppose was done to make it even more irresistible by giving every chance for it to be color compatible with some location in everyone's house or wherever they had in mind locating it.

The taking the Stone Head from Easter Island and fashioning a tissue dispenser from it using the nose as the outake orifice was in my mind an ultimate in tasteless humor.  

To those I have shown the photo to - each say they wanted to buy one for themselves. All got a big laugh out of looking at it and envisioning how it would be placed in their homes.

I plan on placing mine in the only bathroom in my small house and not say anything to those who visit me. The object being to let everyone discover it on their own and react as they will with a high probability of a loud laughter hoot* for openers.

Here is hoping each of you were able to grab a laugh as this run at a tribute to the statues on Easter Island.

Best regards,

    That’s a conversation piece right there. Guests will see it and won’t be able to resist asking about it.

    I had a lot of fun with this one. Our lunch group spent the better part of an hour just giggling our asses off over this picture.
