Blimey!  
For Christmas this year, my wonderful wife got me a wonderfully hideous pirate puppet. The pictures I'm finding online don't do him justice, truly.

Here's the best likeness I can find:



Here's the thing. That ratty, stringy dyed-wool hair? It looks a lot like actual hair on the puppet. And despite the nose out of an old Rankin-Bass animation, he really does have a sufficiently "really ugly little person" look to put him squarely in the Uncanny Valley.

He's awesome.

Does he have a name?

Not yet. Shanna favors "Mister Pirate", while I favor "the very prettiest princess in the world". When you read that second name, read it with your worst over-the-top pirate voice -- it's what I do!
