In his previous life as a dentist, Bob Bleier would preach to any and everybody about the dire, nay, apocalyptic consequences of NOT flossing. He would petrify school-children with tales of a dystopian society filled with zombie-like non-flossers if those children missed flossing FOR A SINGLE DAY. Today, Bob's backyard plays host to sculptures that prove him all too right.
This is the Floss family. That's Bob Floss, the dad, at the right, trailed by his lovely wife Merium Floss, with darling daughter Alicia Floss at the left, and their faithful dog Yogafloss drinking the muddy water. The Floss family flossed regularly, nay, obsessively! But it paid off; look how healthy and happy this family is!!!
Who are these derelict and decaying individuals? Why, they're the Nonfloss family. That's Madge Nonfloss glaring down at poor, hapless son Josh, with the gnarled torso of dad Jerry Nonfloss
looking down disapprovingly.
A close-up of Madge and Josh Nonfloss. Do YOU wish to be part of this dysfunctional, toothless, decayed familial entity? No?! Well then, you better FLOSS DAILY, nay, HOURLY, or your fate will MATCH THEIRS!!
The Backyard Sculpture of Merium Bleier
Bob Bleier created an amazing sculpture of the love of his life, Merium Bleier. This sculpture stood vigil in the backyard of the family home for many years, until nature and the elements took their toll.
Bob Bleier's amazing backyard sculpture. Standing to the left is Bobby's Muse, Merium.
The Larger-Than-Life sculpture of Merium with both the Muse and the Sculptor by its sides.
The backyard sculpture with the Sculptor, Bobby, at the right, in the sweats & "Fitness Center" T-Shirt.
These surreal sculptures of Warped Humans, Dragons, Horses and Beasts of unkown or long-forgotten origin, are the work of neighborhood-renowned Dentist-Turned-Sculptor Robert Bleier. Click on any image for a larger view.
Just Out of the Kiln - August 2013!
This statue, "Bronze Man and Centaur", was created around 700 BC and stands approximately 6 inches tall. It resides in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and it served as Bobby's Inspiration for...
...The wonderful, brand-spanking new Diane Centaurus! But it wasn't always this pristine...
Initially, this piece of its tushy came out first! Detached from the rest of the Diane Centaurus, this right cheek thought it was destined to go it alone.
But luckily, Diane Centaurus felt certain something
was missing. The more she thought back on it, the more convinced she was that she left something in the kiln behind her.
After filling out all required forms in triplicate, she got Sculptor Bob to give her cheek back.
Once Diance notices the Sculptor's signature, she knows she is whole again.
Diane Centaurus, convinced she is whole, radiates with pleasure and satisfaction.
Diane, from the right, hands clasped in prayer that no other body part falls off.
See, Diane! No problems with this backside view! You are quite whole!
Diane's smile lights up the room.
Three Quarters view of Diane and her Sculptor's signature.
Diane Centaurus, pleased and resplendent, thinks back on early worries.
She thinks back to the first minutes out of the kiln, when she couldn't find her tushy with two hands and a flashlight. But Sculptor Bob came to the rescue, and all is now wonderful.
November 2012 - Blue Baby Arrives!!
The Blue Baby arrives! Parents Blue Girl and Blew Boy couldn't be prouder! With a thick, healthy mane and a strange-eyed steed, the Blue Baby is set to take the world by storm!
The Blue Baby was born without a musical instrument. That will change soon.
The Blue Baby and his wild-eyed ride are already plotting their first expeditions.
The aero-dynamic lines of bird and baby make them ideal for flying fast and loose.
Notice the strange eyes of the Blue Baby's bird/horse? The better to see you with.
An R-rated view of Blue Baby's tushy. But try to keep your eyes on the wings of the wild-eyed steed, who can speed Blue Baby from school room to nap room and back in an instant!
Another tushy view of the Blue Baby.
A close-up of Blue Baby and wild-eyed steed. How does he see through those things?
Note the tail, which doubles as a leg of the tripod. Great for quick take-offs and landings.
Blue Baby & Steed with landing gear lowered.
They make a great team, Blue Baby and steed, but what about Mom and Dad?
At last! The Blue Baby joins his father Blew Boy, and mother Blue Girl, on the dining room table. With mom on guitar and dad on the horn, the Blue Baby is a lock on vocals!
May 2012 - !!! Blue Girl !!!
The proud Sculptor and his latest creation, just before entering the Kiln.
Just a quick firing, then some glaze, and she'll be ready!!!
It doesn't look like there's any hope after this "wardrobe malfunction".
But wait! With a little patchwork, glaze and some major TLC, the Blue Girl is Resurrected!!
She looks perfect! No sign of the Kiln explosion on this beautiful instrumentalist!!
Side view of Blue Girl. Notice that she's got her hands in close for a high note. Tres cool.
If you were backing up the Blue Girl on drums, this is how you'd see her.
A tushie view of the Blue Girl. She looks good from ANY angle!
And this is how she'd look if you were accompanying her on keys.
Another side view of the Blue Girl blues player. This young lady can twiddle that fiddle.
The Blue Girl does NOT take requests.
Unless you request some Wes Montgomery.
The Blue Girl always plays with a smile on her face!
Just like the great Billy Higgins.
A close-up of the Blue Girl as she performs her rendition of the Wes Montgomery classic
Her improv solo might even get a nod from the master himself.
The Blew Boy!
This is the Blew Boy! Get it?!?! He's Blue, and he Blew? No THAT'S madcap comedy!
Blew Boy in his natural habitat.
Tushie view of the Blew Boy.
The Blew Boy, who by the way is blue, can blow your ears off with his blues horn.
Because the Blew Boy, (Who, as we mentioned earlier, plays the blues) plays so long and loud, his face often turns... wait for it... it's coming... blue.
I don't know how many more Blew/Blue gags I can come up with.
Can you do the Blew/Blue humor better? Let's hear what you've got! Email your best Blew/Blue gag in to NoReply@NonexistantBlewBlueEmailAddress.org
(We had to use .org, because NonexistantBlewBlueEmailAddress.com was already taken)
Another tushie view of the Blew Boy blues player. He sure can blow.
I'm trying to come up with a gag that involves Blew, Blue and Stool, but it's just not working.
Side view of the Blew Boy. Notice the oh so with-it pony-tail that he's wearing. Tres cool.
Cool blues players like
Blew Boy try to stay in the city when the play. Suburbs? OMG!
The Blew Boy's schedule for 2012 is wide open. Book your concert, wedding or Bar Mitzvah now, and get a 25% discount! And for a small additional fee, he'll bring along his Blew Rhythm Section and Blew Girl Vocalist! Call Now for a Quote!
September 2011 - The Bobbsey Twins From Planet A10!!! (Watch Out! They're coming with their Parents!)
The Bobbsey Twins are through with Finishing School!
See the luster of their shared hair?
You may notice an updated base for the finished Bobbseys; it has everything to do with fashion trends on Planet A10 and nothing to do with a fit of OCD by the Sculptor
Three-Quarters tushie view of the Twins.
Notice that both parents wear Baby-Blue lipstick. Once again, everything to do with A10 fashion-forwardness, and nothing to do with the color-blindedness of forementioned Sculptor.
Planet A10 men find ruddily-complected women quite attractive. Many A10 women with fair complexions will get monthly Bo-Ruddy-Tox injections to stay appealing.
We can only hope and pray that our Planet Earth teens and tweens don't go for the same eye-shading fashionista trends that are currently all the rage on Planet A10.
Another 3/4 tushie view; in case you hadn't noticed, Planet A10 is a very tushie-o-centric culture.
One would think a doctor could help separate these twins at the hair follicle, but apparently their follicles include brain cells, crucial for thinking and stuff.
A close-up of one of the parent. Since both genders wear their hair long and use the same eye-liner and lipstick, it's often difficult for a Bobbsey to tell Mom from Dad.
We're pretty sure this is Gertrude Bobbsey, not Irma. Pretty sure. Relatively sure.
OK, we have no clue. They switch eye-shading just to keep us guessing.
About To Enter The Kiln - June 2011
!!! The Bobbsey Twins From Planet A10 !!!
Another alert from Planet A10! This time, it's their version of the Bobbsey Twins. They're visiting our planets along with their parents. They had a hard landing, and their base blew up, but repairs are being made as we speak.
Why did they come here, you ask? We are uncertain at this time; it may be an innocent visit to enjoy the wonders of our planet, or it may be an insidious attempt to overthrow our government while the A10 Diplomats disengenuously feign interest in continuing negoiations. But HAH! We're onto them! And we're terribly pleased with ourselves for crowbarring insidious, disengenuous and feign into the same sentence. Pretty impressive, no?
(Click any picture below to open a larger image)
These young tweens share their hair with each other. And their parents are all wound up in it.
The young lady from "Tangled" is a short-haired Shirley Temple compared to Robert's Bobbseys!
We're seeing a bit too much tushie from this view; parents, instruct your children to leave the room when viewing this image.
A close up of one of the Bobbsey Twins. You can tell this is Irma Bobbsey, and not Gertrude Bobbsey, by the pair of sissors that are always dangling just behind her.
January 2011- Diplomats From Planet A10
An important event took place back in January: Diplomats from Planet A10 had arrived via TSRC (Time-Space Roller Coaster: The Sculptor Bobby is pictured riding just such a device)!!!
They were dressed for this high level meeting wearing their finest jacket, shirt and a most fashionable Tie (When you take a closer look at the tie, notice the various shapes and colors; given Bobby’s eating habits, most – if not all – are likely soup stains).
With the Diplomats came three Trolls from the lava beds that are deep in the far reaches of their planet. These trolls act as guards; if anything goes haywire on the trip, these fearsome creatures, existing on the backs of the heads of the Diplomats, will step in and create calm where panic and chaos once reigned.
The two Diplomats on the right side have the same nose and may be related. The Diplomat on the left side was sent by their T Party, and looks to have a problem concentrating. They are here to discuss the possibility of having a trade agreement arranged so that they can ship their excess population to our planet!

The "Before" Version - Diplomats From Planet A10 (Because Sculptures from Planet A9 weren't testing well with the crucial 25-39 year-old Demographic)
These Planet A10 Diplomats are ready to get their colors baked in. Let's contact the media.
And where better to bake this astonishing creation than in YOUR NEW KILN!!! That's right, from now on, you'll be kilning in style with the Olympic FL-12E Front-Loading Electric Kiln.
Surreal Sculptures Recently Extracted
April 2010 Bringing Up Babies on Planet A9 (Planet A9 Procreators are SO much cooler than those jerks on Planet A10!)
Those A10 weenies birth kids via some weird bug. How stupid is that?
On A9, we unscrew our kids out of the ground!!!
Just the way All-Seer Ooogle-Boogle intended!! Hah!
This side view provides a clear example of the posture problems Planet A9 residents face.
And notice how the kids get unscrewed as the come out?
On A10 they get all screwed up!
<Can you tell that the Planet A9
residents have a HUGE inferiority complex?>
One FINAL A9/A10 comparison;
we screw our kids out CLOCKWISE.
THEY do COUNTER-clockwise.
One good aspect of the birthing process; very little schmutz on the ground afterwards.
You have to respect a race that is so
Faces are on BOTH sides of the child's head, but only on ONE side of the parent's.
The kid's hair comes out this way. Planet A9 parents NEVER pay for haircuts.
See the look of surprise on this parent's face? She was expecting a girl...
They'd already named her and picked out nice formaldehyde-colored outfits
(Formaldehyde = Pink on Planet A9).
This guy is NOT going to happy with the name "Gertrude". Not happy at all.
And th-th-that's the way it is on Planet A9. Happy Birthing to You, Too!!!

Procreation on Planet A10 (You don't even want to KNOW how it happens on Planet A9!)
Click on any image below for a larger view
Yeah, that's right. Mommy's got a creature for a womb; you gotta problem with that?
Where does the baby gestate, you ask? How embarassing for you! Kids on Planet A10 learn about THAT in 2nd Grade!!!
And yes, as a matter of fact, the baby IS extracted via the belly button. But only when an emergency planetA10-section is required.
Think of it less as a pregnancy and more as a competition pitting mom against baby against creature.
Interestingly, the creature isn't just part of the womb, but also a sort of Planet A10 mid-wife. Actually, think of it as a cross between a mid-wife and a pre-natal life coach.
This particular creature was trained at Planet A10's prestigious University of WombMaster Technology,
aka "Bug Tech".
And look how CUTE Baby looks in his genuine
Louis Vitton knicker neck-tie!
Mother wears a matching neck-tie during baby extraction. Birthing is a very formal affair on Planet A10.

the effects of the recession on Planet A10!!!)
What, no worry wrinkles? No frown-lines? It's unfortunate that Mom felt the need to
inject botox into herself this soon after giving birth...
