Humpty Dumpty Reanimated

We all know how the first half of this story goes: H D was sitting on a wall / had a
great fall / and no one could put him back together again.
Well not until 1801, when a German stone mason named Wilhelm Trowels Point,
came across these strange looking white shell like pieces in the soil at the base
of a wall he was repairing on the grounds of the young Victor Frankenstein.
Victor recognized the pieces immediately as being from the legendary egg like
creature and thus began his first and far less well known foray into reanimation
many years before the Doctors infamous second attempt. In many ways this was
the more successful of his experiments and HD-2 became a most capable lab
assistant to the good Doctor until his death some 52 years later.
HD-2 ran out of power a few weeks later and was sold with contents of the
castle that following spring. Nothing is known of his whereabouts until May of
2005 when I purchased him from an old curio shop in London.
HD-2 has been a valued assistant in the Plaseebo shop these past seven years.
This is a new 11″ one-off custom vinyl mash-up with a vacuum tube, lights and slime.
