PILLOW TALK, SOMEWHERE U.S.A., 1962

Pillow Talk

This drop-jawed dummy gives “talking in your sleep” a whole new meaning!

Speaking of ventriloquism…as if paying respects at Colonel Sanders’ grave, winning at the “bluegrass” state’s namesake derby or spending the night at the Wig Wam Village Motel #2 wasn’t already reason enough to visit the great state of Kentucky, we now all have yet another – The Vent Haven Museum.

The dummy domicile is the world’s only museum dedicated to the art of ventriloquism. Hard to imagine, but 700 dummies are displayed there and have been since 1974.

The Vent Haven even has an annual convention in Kentucky every year promoted as the “World’s oldest and largest ventriloquism gathering!”

Wouldn’t you love to be a fly in the wall for that?!

Here’s to Kentucky, dummies, the Vent Haven Museum and YOU!
