Without googling or cheating, the first thing that comes to mind is the guy removes his glass eye or his dentures, showing his gnarly gums and the fake teeth, or the empty, red, wrinkled eye socket and eyeball rolling around in his palm. Either of those two things would gross me out entirely.
Perhaps McGonagall could have done a double bill with Florence Foster Jenkins. Try your ears out on this:
I’ll just leave my favourite classical orchestra here:
Now a major motion picture starring Simon Pegg
An artificial limb could do the same. The removal of a bandage from a nasty wound could have the same effect.
The section is in 21:00 for folks who don’t feel like listening to the whole thing
Just a thought…
Possibly someone dressed up as a character related to children’s entertainment removed part of his costume (e.g. the head of Minnie Mouse at Disneyland) ruining the fantasy of several children, and so on.
“Think about the time of year” is a clue? I’m confused. June 9th should make us think of Santa Claus?
I don’t see this guy getting hired to play Santa.
I dunno. Beats me. I’m stumped.
I listened and I’m still stumped, but I guess Christmas is a BIG FREAKIN DEAL.
I’m hoping that he tipped his hat in a polite manner, exposing his naked brain to the onlookers - or that he had a Kuato.
Where’s @SavedYouAClick when you need it?
Here you go:
He was a professional Santa Claus and he removed his fake beard in public.
I figured it out quicker than podcast dude, but it still took me a few hints.
I based my groom’s speech at my wedding last year on the incredible works of William Topaz McG. Opinion seems divided on whether he was a faux naif or just somewhere on the autism spectrum. My favourite story is that he wrote ‘The Bridge over the River Tay’ praising the bridge; which was then collapsed by storms less than a year later; so he wrote ‘The Tay Bridge Disaster’ immediately; and then when the bridge was rebuilt, he wrote ‘The New Bridge over the River Tay’, praising the engineering changes (mainly the inclusion of buttresses) that made it superior to the original bridge. What was lost in meter, inventiveness and craft was made up for through factual accuracy.
More of a poet engineer than a poet laureate, then.
William McGonagall has nothing on Colin Millaney! Well, Colin is fictional and somewhat inspired by Willie Mac. Read the humorous exploits of Colin Millaney in the novel The Greatest Living Englishman.
The PS is more conceptual than classical, but great link!
Oh the Vogonity!
