Hope you enjoyed my Google friendly post title!
I've always found the image of the "trophy wife," or just female conquest in general, taken literally, to have a wonderful '50's krazy kooky kitschy charm.
Or …should it be taken as a vicious demeaning denouncement of the female by pitiful, frightened, insecure men? Males unable to deal with women on a mental level so they symbolically catch and possess them with mindless brute force?
Or is it all just plain silly?

I'm on an artists budget for God's sake!
|This was a homemade anniversary gift to the then wife.|
It was the only thing she didn't want to take with her.
I still find it appealing. :-)

Why can't I be the talk of the neighborhood?!

"Look! Someone threw out a perfectly good female!
Thank you! Make sure to tip the waitstaff! You've been fantastic! Good night!"
And- to answer my question poised at the beginning ...I'm going with silly.
Truth is, I'm sure I could find just as many examples of men's heads mounted on walls (I think every other EC horror comic ended with that scene), but that's not as much fun, is it?
