My Mom finds some weird things at garage sales for me. A couple of weeks ago, she found this — an Easter Island tissue dispenser. The box itself is metal, with a pseudo-stone face attached to the front of it. The back side contains an elastic strap that will keep it affixed to a box of tissues. The perfectly aligned hole allows those with allergies or the sniffles to obtain a tissue through the statue’s nose.
If you aren’t familiar with Easter Island and its 887 “moai” monuments, Leonard Nimoy would be glad to tell you all about it on this episode of “In Search Of …”. Below is a link to Part 1 of 3 of the episode on YouTube.
Watching those old episodes of “In Search Of” brings a tear to my eye. If only I had a tissue nearby. Oh, wait …
