Are you fans of the BBC’s Ground Force show? Have you often wished that you could take Charlie and the gang home with you? Now you can! A company in the UK is making Sculptoons, brilliant little sculptures fashioned after British celebs. You can also get some crazy-looking gnomes and other garden animals. What’s next? Just imagine having a little Tony Blair to order around, or a Hugh Grant to fetch you drinks. I’m loving it.
These little creatures are not without their own controversy. Apparently Charlie is known and loved for not wearing a bra in the UK version of the show (she says she just doesn’t like them an doesn’t know what the fuss is all about), but she does wear one for her US appearances–and it appears that the Sculptoon is, shall we say, fully covered. The subject of Charlie’s bra, or lack thereof, gets discussed on gardening blogs more than you might think–we particularly like this post advocating for proper support in the garden:
Charlie may be able to cope with all that swinging and swaying and general pendulousness, but I take one look at her and I ache on her behalf
Hey, whatever works. Personally, I think a black lace bra is right for any occasion. And recent posts on Jude Law notwithstanding, we maintain an equal-opportunity approach here at GardenRant and would like to take this opportunity to say: Charlie, you’re a total babe.Posted by Amy Stewart on November 15, 2006 at 6:29 am, in the category Taking Your Gardening Dollar.
