Madame Tussaud’s where the wax comes to life in Los Angeles


I moved my hands through her soft silky hair down the length of her back until I came to her curvaceous ass where my hands rested. I moved my hips, dancing to Bootylicious for you baby. A short African American man with a wry smile, looks at me before blurting out “what are you doing man”  “Come on, it’s Beyonce” I reply before giving him a high five.

My eyes scan the rest of the floor I notice Elton John standing all by his lonesome I run across and slap a big wet kiss on his cheek while my wife and son play on his piano. This gives Elton some joy and he lights up, face beaming, I think he wants more before I quickly excuse my self when I notice a familiar looking face sitting on the couch. I slowly go over trying to build enough courage, before I stutter four clumsy words ” Are you Jack Nicholas?” The man turns his head, chuckling to himself when he offers his hand.   I give it a firm shake take a quick photo, not to many times you meet such legends.

I hear such horrendous singing coming from the next room, I put my ear to the door, I can make out a British accent but I’m not sure who it is but his words are not very complimentary, in fact they are quite rude, the singer runs away visibly upset .

I open the door when I hear “next”. I walk on stage when I notice it ‘s Simon Cowell” So what are you going to sing for us today” me, sing I can’t sing I notice the two seats next to him were vacant where Randy and Paula usually sit. I’m about to preach, I don’t want to sing, I can’t sing when the seats next to Simon were filled, it wasn’t the usual judges, but a six year old boy and his mother peering down at me. I knew it was time to get the hell out of here I reached for the camera, click and ran for the door.

I heard the rolling of wheels and a clunk on the ramp as Tony Hawk was skating, my son thought he could match the pro and padded up to after landing a kickflip,a hand plant and a Mctwist, to the roars of the crowd that had surrounded the ramp to watch, we noticed Tiger Woods still practicing his golf. My son stormed over there and gave him a few words on how to treat women. Tiger thanked my son and said he will try his best only time will tell.

It was my turn to play one on one with Kobe Bryant, I picked up the ball, blew right by him with a crossover before laying the ball in the hoop. He stood there like he was a waxed figure but that was exactly what he was, just like everybody else in these rooms as we were in the waxed land of Madame Tussauds.
