    I'm a massive dorky manchild and I love fantasy, skulls, dragons, and all that stuff. Here's the top of my Mills Custom Bayonet 50. Excuse the terrible photo - my phone has a potato for a camera.

    Sometimes. If I feel like it.

    I recently put a dragon on my amp. It upset the dog.

    I looked over at mine and it reminded me I have to dust. :(

    There is often a glass of wine on top of my bass cab. However I continually am correcting my kids to not put drinks on top of my guitar amp (vents on top). Liquid and electronics don't mix. So aside from the occasional cat, nothing adorns the top of my guitar amp.

    I had this stuck in the bottom in front of the grill. Not that exact drawing, but bright colours, and same sort of thing.

    Nothing usually on my amp (except maybe a cold adult beverage)

    But I have all sorts of stuff (junk?!?!?) scattered around my rehearsal/party room.

    Burt the Moose has been my kick drum damper for probably 20 years! Plus lots of music/band figurines, and a mini-Tele!

    I knew a guy who kept a small .38 revolver in a holster that was screwed into place in the back of his Twin Reverb.

    That was the least scary thing about that dude...
    I’m not afraid of guns.
    I’m not worried about weirdos.
    But I’m extremely wary of weirdos with guns.

    This is a trick question. After all the exhortations to tilt my amp up to point at my head everything slides off. Now as for the stuff piled on my PA head....

    Any flat surface in the house is instantly claimed by Mrs. SS as a viable storage area for laundry, blankets, general stuff she "intends" to move later. We recently had a major clean up of "stuff" from the garage. It filled a 4X8X12 foot dumpster. It is now possible to enter the garage, but still not available for vehicle storage.
