Amish Ax Man (In Transition)

Field review by the editors.

Dallas, Georgia

Type: Halfwit (~14-18 ft. tall)

Arm position: Standard

Accessories: Double-sided Ax

Nickname: Amish Farmer

This Alfred E. Neumann lookalike -- a Happy Half-Wit model Muffler Man (in the original International Fiberglass catalog as "Mortimer Snerd") -- started at the Danbury Fair in Connecticut. He was modified in the 1980s with an Amish-style beard, black hat, and a murderous double-bladed ax -- ready for a barn razing?

He was dubbed "Amish Farmer" when he stood at Magic Forest in New York State (1987-2018), deep in the woods along a path that wound past fairy tale dioramas.

After engendering generations of childhood traumas, he was purchased by Mike Whitman in Dallas, Georgia, who plans to stand him next to his plumbing business in 2019.
