Roy Orbinson, in Cling Wrap

I am never quite sure when my leg is being pulled. (NSFW)

I most sincerely hope that this is indeed one of the leg pulling times.

And people find clowns creepy?

No, I’ve known about the “Roy Orbison in cling film” fellow for years now.

I seem to have poked into some odd corners of the web.

Y’know, normally I don’t agree with the government sterilizing certain people to make sure they don’t reproduce, but . . . .

Does the clingfilm come before or after he died?

That’s awesome. I sent an email with that link to my friends. I sure hope the subject line “Roy Orbison in Clingfilm” does not set off any spam filters! :smiley:

Your leg is totally not being pulled. I mean, everyone knows at least a dozen people whose last name means “hairbrush” (Haarbürste).

I want to believe that this is a leg pull – I so desperately do – but … rule 34, man.

This site is several years old. I think I first heard of it back in 2001 or so. I forget about it, until someone says Roy Orbison and Cling Wrap or Cling film in close succession, then it all comes flooding back. The horror, the horror!

I hope you all dived in deep enough to read about his neighbor – who write stories about Michael Bolton being a vampire. He is considering a collaboration.

I strongly suspect that that’s not going to be an issue here…

I didn’t read much, but this cracked me up:

"‘Hello Roy,’ I say. ‘What are you doing in Dusseldorf?’

‘Attending to certain matters,’ he replies.

‘Ah,’ I say.

He apprises Jetta’s lines with a keen eye. ‘That is a well-groomed terrapin,’ he says.

‘Her name is Jetta.’ I say. ‘Perhaps you would like to come inside?’

‘Very well.’ He says."

Pure fried awesome, is what that is.

Some of the Haikus are beautiful.
Ok, not necessarily beautiful, but interesting.

You can buy the book on Amazon…

I’ll wait for the Cliff Notes.

Awww… It turns out that the real author of all this is a British comedian named Michael Kelly. That’s somewhat disappointing. Don’t get me wrong, kudos to Mr. Kelly for his cleverness and originality, but still… I kinda liked the idea of living in a world with Ulrich Haarbuste walking around with his turtle. Sigh.
