What's up with puppets? They're sort of fun but also creepy.

i have at least 10-12 marionettes. a few are probably worth something as they are 50+ old. my mom collected and would buy me random ones growing up.

they creep the absolute fork out of me.

Of course you do zeetes.


And damn, I didn't have "In present possession of 12 marionettes" on my zeetes bingo card. 😂

Okay so this has to be explored.

Can you describe the collection? Are they characters we would know? I remember marionettes often being like these mariachi/Mexican dolls. Did you get any of them in Australia?

This is actually quite interesting. All of it not just the quote
Puppets are mentioned in writing as early as 422 B.C.E. In ancient Greece, Aristotle and Plato both made reference to puppetry.

Is that puppeteer street performer still around Royal St in the quarters? He does like the Beatles and stuff like that. He's good.
