    1. Same here. I also find them very odd. What's the deal with the belts?

  2. I wonder if the belts were to "whip him into shape"...is that a tea cup on top of the belts??

  3. Can you imagine passing by and seeing Chaplin in his swimsuit, boxing? Something else!

  5. Yes, and the droopy socks because he's not wearing his garters. I wondered if the belts were supposed to represent boxing belts. I'm not sure why there is a teacup on top of them! Also, why is the pool empty?
