Into Ventriloquism? Pleasant Dreams…

 

I find ventriloquism alternately unfunny and creepy.  Even experts in the art of making dummies talk–Edgar Bergen, Walter Winchell, even Senor Wences–all have the creep factor turned up pretty high.  I mean, really, holding a small, creepy doll on your lap and making it seem to talk?

Anyway, saw this today.  Follow the link to see some terrific olde tyme ventriloquist pictures.

And good luck sleeping tonight…
