Well, if you're doing a child catcher, how about a Pied Piper  :)

Good call.
You'd have to include the last slow moving child on crutches.

Seconded on the child catcher though... but an earlier version sans top hat and tails.

You really need to visit Rothenburg o-d-t.

The museum is eyewatering (although the website doesn't have many pictures):
http://www.kriminalmuseum.rothenburg.de/Englisch/page1.html

The rosary in those pictures has beads about the size of a cricket ball. Probably similar weight too.

And the museum has the most impressive display of scolds bridles you are ever likely to find.

This thread has inspired me to go back and rewatch 'Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead'.  Thanks!
