This statue is part of the modern Church Room Institute, on Camden Place in the Widcombe section of Bath. It guards the area for garbage collection near the back door and is part of a canopy support. Creative.

The count has an eye on his ankle
and lives in a horrible place.
He wants all your money.
He’s never at all funny.
He wants to remove your face!
And you might be thinking, What a romp this is!
But wait till you meet his accomplices…

 

When you see Count Olaf you’re suddenly full of
disgust and despair and dismay.
In the whole of the soul of Count Olaf there’s no love
When you see Count Olaf, count to zero;
Then, scream and run away
Scream, scream, scream, and run away
Run, run, run, run, run, run, run,
Or die, die, die, die, die, die, die, die,
Run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run,
Or die, die, die, die, die, die, die, die, die, die

 

Two women with powdered white faces,
and one long-nosed bald man with warts,
things worsen and worsen
there’s a hook-handed person
and others with nastier parts.
This evil and unpleasant group
completes Count Olaf’s acting troupe!

 

The goal of Count Olaf is getting control of
the fortunes of urchins and orphans, hooray!
I mean, horrors! Count Olaf is no laughing matter.
When you see Count Olaf, count to zero;
Then scream and run away….
Scream, scream, scream, and run away
Run, run, run, run, run, run, run,
Or die, die, die, die, die, die, die, die,
Run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run,
Or die, die, die, die, die, die, die, die, die, die

–“Scream and Run Away” by the Gothic Archies.

I apologize to everyone that I won’t be checking this very often for a week or two.

  1. FLOWERPOT HEAD!

    I love it. This is WAY better than a bridge.

  2. je ne comprends pas tout (mon anglais est limite limite) mais j’aime beaucoup cette statue et ta prise de vue.

    I do not understand all (my English is limiting limiting) but I like much this statue and your catch of sight.

  3. I love the angle on this, wonderful! I like your bridge photos a lot. If I had a bridge like that where I lived – and I wouldn’t, no bridges like that in the US – I’d be taking a gazillion photos.
