Well it certainly is strange but if you want just outright homely-faced u-gly you
gotta see the statue of lady liberty that sits atop the Texas state capitol
building up close. I went to Austin when they had her ugliness down for
restoration. Never in your life have you seen such nostrils! And her FEET! All
I could think of was that song my sister learned in 2nd grade, "Hagdaleena
Magdaleena" -- "She ha two feet as flat a bathroom mats. I don't know how they
got like that. . . ."

Which means a 2-2,5 exxageration. Not bad :-)

You're lucky then. Here's a general view of ours: You should really see the monster's face, but I can't find a photo right now :-( You're lucky ;-) Pavel -- Pavel Iosad Is mall a mharcaicheas am fear a bheachdaicheas --Scottish proverb
