When Ash and I first met, one of the things she was into was building dollhouses. I'm not talking little girl stuff here, I mean the really hard kind that require a steady hand, the patience of a saint, and ridiculous attention to detail. Rather than just blow this off as lame, I immediately tried to pervert her hobby into building miniature dwellings that fell outside the norm. I suggested haunted mansions, crime scenes, abandoned houses occupied by squatters, you name it, but my suggestions went unheeded.
She did do one little project, however, that would definitely give the old ladies down at the miniatures shop a case of the vapors:
That there's Carl, named after the character of the same name from Aqua Teen Hunger Force that provided the original inspiration for this guy, right down to the hairy legs and dirty undershirt. Over his head, you'll notice a small picture on a pedestal. That's Margaret Thatcher, the former prime minister of England, a fact I mention here not so much for your edification, but just so you know that I know who Margaret Thatcher is. You'll see why soon enough. Anyhow, in case you're wondering what a guy like Carl is doing in a house like this with a picture of Margaret Thatcher sitting over his head, here's a little something that tells his story.
