Meet my new friend, Farnsworth

Isn't he the cutest!
Two things led me to Farnsworth...
One, would be his obvious good looks, and the other is how little he cost me.
Honestly, I would have paid $15, but he was only a third of that... a measly $5.
 How I ask you could I leave him sitting on the shelf?  I gave his ankle a dab of glue and his rear end a brush of black paint, and he is good as new.
 And he has been placed in a starring role in the living room. Right next to my chair.

As for the name...
Hopefully someone out there watches either Futurama or Warehouse 13... But the actual person was fascinating in his own right.... see here

More fall finds later this month!

  1. Hey...great minds think alike. I have a Farnsworth too! Although I didn't know he was named Farnsworth...I call mine 'Owl'. Yes, I know the originality there is astounding...ha!

    I got mine a couple of years ago and I put him in a big display of other strange Halloween dolls. I'll be posting some pics soon. But I was happy to learn that 'Owl' has a twin brother who also lives in Florida...ha! :o)
