Under Plastic

The Plastic Fantastic

Lots of people like squirrelling plastic figurines under plastic on shelves.

But what they are actually squirreling away are the idea of little people under plastic on shelves.

This is a club called 'Under Plastic' where performers set themselves into transparent form-fitted plastic bas relief molds, and are well tied up with plastic straps and then are fitted into a cardboard or paper box. The boxes are then presented on a stage.

Patrons are given scissors, and as appropriate, a pack of batteries.

       When I was an evil little shit I went to Disney World and, in a ride, threw a piece of trash at one of the figurines. I didn't expect it to hit. I also didn't expect to see a human immediately (less than five seconds) grab the figure of a child and pull it backstage. It was many years later that I learned that the Small World ride uses actual human actors and actresses in places. I had thrown garbage at a human child. This is one of the things I most wish I never did.

       This is horrifying. But it's also classic half-baking. [=]

       Weren't we all? Some grow less evil, others just grow.

       Bigger is better, right?

       "...Man is a marvelous curiosity. When he is at his very very best he is a sort of low grade nickel-plated angel; at his worst he is unspeakable, unimaginable; and first and last and all the time he is a sarcasm."
—Mark Twain, circa 1909

       With Twain in mind, I don't think bigger is necessarily better. Capacity for doing evil grows in lockstep with capacity for doing good. The only thing that matters is which you express.
