Ugly Pianos

Is it possible for inanimate objects to feel shame? Horror? Dispair?  If so, I feel sorry for these ugly pianos.

Liberace is rolling over in his grave. (I do like the pig one, though.)

The pig is one is brilliant. The rest are from hell.

I actually like the yellow one---- there might be something wrong with me.

Trissta said...

The first one is AMAZING! Also belongs in some sort of eighties movie with a fuzzy creature jumping out of it, but still, AMAZING! Having grown up playing the piano, I have a special affection for this post.

Much Love,
