What is creepier than clowns? Wax people.
Wax fruit is weird too.
Wax Museums traditionally depict famous people and they apparently all wish to present a Chamber of Horrors.
Vincent Price creeps around in the 1953 movie, House of Wax creating his own special artwork. Between fires that melt the exhibits and newly created exhibits that depict horror scenes, this movie is filled with enough unpleasant scenes to have your date melting into your arms in an effort to stop watching it.
Not to be outdone, 2005 brought us the normal group of unwitting teenagers who are trying hard to not become an exhibit in another creepy wax museum.
I am not certain how any teenagers have ever reached adulthood since most are dumb enough to answer the phone in the middle of the night, step into televisions, fall asleep and dream, rent a cabin in the woods, become stranded in cars, motels, wax museums and other isolated places. Not to mention they are always being chased by hockey players, chainsaw wielding woodsmen, leprechauns and Chucky dolls.
On a trip to San Francisco, I got the chance to see the Wax Museum at Fisherman’s Wharf. I am not a fan of wax museums, and I am amazingly cheap at times, so when I saw the museum, I knew I was not going to pay money to see wax fruit. Grandma had some of that in a bowl.
However, that did not stop me from taking a lot of photos of the front entrance, and I will admit, those figures were a bit too lifelike for my tastes.
See, wax is creepy.

While it is probably not a Madam Tussauds’ in New York, I will venture a guess that the inside statues are very well done and displayed. Just watch out for crazy people with matches, do not take a long a bus full of teenagers and stay away from becoming an exhibit yourself and you will probably have a great time.
Madam Tussaud has displayed this handsome rascal. For some reason, a stinky pirate with spiders in his hair is somehow attractive. The same cannot be said for Keith Richards.
The Hollywood Wax Museum is also a place to see a lot of celebrities coated in wax other than the kind that removes hair.
If you cannot stalk a celebrity at a place to eat, stand by one in this museum and get your photo taken. http://www.hollywoodwaxmuseum.com/hollywood/
