Mail and the machines of the roadside

On today's episode of Roadside Candy Machines, may I take you to Sippersfeld, for no other reason than randomness?

You can mail a letter in the yellow box, buy a weird bead bracelet or mini soccer ball, or purchase some disgusting looking Bubble King with some sort of weird...growth on the machine containing it.

Num num.

Is it drawn on or cut off?

I'm fascinated by weird mannequins after a trip to Strasbourg.

During a vacation in Copenhagen this fall, I came across this guy:

At first I thought that his facial hair was drawn on. The more I looked at it, I thought that maybe it had been actually "hair" (okay, something synthetic) but for some reason someone had cut it off.

He also seemed a bit familiar. I wonder if he has an German Aussie cousin?
