Twisted neighbourhood

I passed this creatively arranged shopwindow of a nearby bakery store in my new neighbourhood in Bochum the other day. And I was so impressed, so deeply moved by the aesthetic coupled with a subliminal eroticism the decoration radiated, that I had to take this picture.
It's a chocolate Fiege beer bottle next to a potato with boobies!! 
This is madness! Madness? THIS! IS! BOCHUM!

Before ALF and The Hoffmeister (as Michael Knight) became my childhood heroes, there was this big, friendly and talking elephant Benjamin Blümchen and his smart friend Otto, whose cassette adventures made me fall asleep every single evening. All the happier I was to draw a Benjamin Blümchen puzzle (I had already drawn him when I was four, so I was practiced ;)

But believe me, it was harder than it looks to hit the pretty strictly defined style.

So get Benjamin Blümchen out with the refuse collection (...bei der Müllabfuhr)
