|Another hideous Spitting Image group shot|
Your nightmares begin here. Yesterday, I posted a group of photos of puppets from England's gone-but-not-forgotten satirical TV series, Spitting Image. Guess what, folks? Those were the cute ones. Today, I'm bringing you the rest of the pics, and it's here where we venture into some very dark territory indeed. Sadly, many of these photos are too big to be reproduced at a decent size on this blog, so I've had to shrink them. Consider yourself lucky. These are some very unpleasant puppets. Keep in mind, my original scans of these images are absolutely huge, so I've viewed them in excruciating detail. I will warn you: the image of Whoopi Goldberg's face floating in what appears to be a bowl of milk is not something to approach lightly. By the way, did you know that the Spitting Image puppets actually scored a #1 hit on the UK charts. Well, they did, and it was called "The Chicken Song." I invite you to listen to it as you peruse these images, and I wish you the best of luck.

|Dustin Hoffman, Robert De Niro, and Meryl Streep|

You know what? I'm not quite done with you yet. That "Chicken Song" you presumably just heard? Well, here's what it's parodying:
Yeah. That was a thing. Push pineapple, shake the tree, the whole bit. I'm pretty sure all the people in that Black Lace video killed themselves immediately afterward.
