Pickled People

Damian Christie says that he's been trying to find an image of a "pickled person" - which he says are

people made out of stuffed stockings, the features sewn in. They look a lot like Brian Edwards.

Well, I don't have any pictures of those, but I do have one of an actual, pickled person: Jeremy Bentham, the father of Utilitarianism:

He's kept in a cupboard at University College, London, and let out once a year for a dinner in his honour. Apparantly he also sits on their College Council... and even votes occasionally.

But I don't think he looks anything like Brian Edwards.
