    Pretty standard at Disney too.

    Agent 66, only if they are folded in such a way as to seduce me. I must admit it would take a lot of seducing or beer to make me hump a sheet.

    T’other Half and I took a holiday in Sharm-el-Sheikh last giftmas. The hotel staff were always doing this – snakes, cats, etc. folded out of the towels. We kept tipping ‘em, and they kept getting more creative. Very cool.

    it’s cheaper just to make a mummy out of an actual indentured worker.

    I’ve had this done on the two cruises I’ve been on, and I can’t say I’m keen on the staff touching my personal stuff, like sunglasses. Some candies on the pillow is enough for me.

    The last cruise I was on, not only did they make the towel animals in our room every night, but on the last day of the cruise they had a ‘Towel Animal Making Class,’ and sold Towel Animal Making books (how could I resist?), so now I’m just -waiting- for someone to come visit me so I can fold their towels in whimsical ways … everyone needs a good towel monkey …

    You mean there has been this whole hidden towel-and-clothes-folding world all this time and I didn’t know? I feel like I’ve just discovered that woodwork exists. Or something. Now I know about it though, I agree with the ex-German hotel worker – all a bit scary.

    Someone find a link to Carnival Cruise’s towel “Seals” — Everyone I’ve met who has seen one thinks they look less like and animal and more like female anatomy.

    I’ve never been on a cruise, so this was news to me! I dig it!

    I thought the PC term was “southwest asia”?

    That’s what they taught us in “oh god please don’t sue us” public schools, anyhow.

    This entire comment was a joke.

    aww, that’s so sweet and kinda cool, but,I JUST WANTED TO GET MY BED MADE! WTF?!?

    I was in Barnes and Noble the other day and they had a book/kit on towel art – had a book, 2 towels, and googly eyes included in it.

    Here’s some links:

    I worked at a resort hotel in Germany as a maid and I had to arrange peoples pajamas like little people. Lay out the shirt and the pants together and make a little waist. I thought it was totally creepy.

  14. moneyries says:

    yea, lol, really neat but does she have to undo them everytime to make her bed?

  15. The Lizardman says:

    This is fairly standard for many cruise lines – though often they use extra towels / cloth napkins and don’t overly disrupt your actual linens. There are a number of books for designs and methods

  16. Justavoice says:

    I need to fold a fake person in my sheets every night or I can’t sleep, you know sense of security… *tear falls down cheek*

  17. Mark Frauenfelder says:

    This made my day!

  18. Agent 86 says:

    JustAVoice, I hear ya. Maybe even two fake people.

  19. RedShirt77 says:

    I want to learn how to do this so I can freak out hotel maids.

  20. Jaycatt says:

    Yes, like Lizardman says, this is fairly standard. I was recently on a cruise, and they’d even use things from the room, like sunglasses, or a plush stuffed toy I had, in the little scenes.

    They made those amazing animals on the Royal Caribbean cruise I was on with my family last fall, I bet they’re not that unusal a feat for people working for gratuities.

    Gonna take a guess here…

    King Faud’s Paddle Steamer, on the Nile.

    I had the exact same sculptures on my bed when I was on it a few months ago, and the beds look the same too.

    The person ‘sculpture’ scared the cr*p out of me when I got back to my room. I thought some one was in my bed waiting for me *wink*.
