Funny as hell, though

/do they come with broken legs?

There you go regulatin' again subby. One mans bad taste is another mans stifled giggle,or don't you get that yet? Why do hate America?

This thing will go gangbusters on the collectibles market.

So where's the equally-offensive Abe Lincoln bobblehead?

I need to complete my collection.

I got a Santa Anna bobble head at the Alamo.

They're having trouble in production on that one

/the hole keeps throwing off the bobble action
 
2012-03-13 09:06:47 PM  
Too soon?

Geez. I need one of those like I need a hole in my head.

ROFLMAO! One second!

They tried those for a bit, but they didn't sell very well. The Abe Lincoln PEZ dispenser where the candy comes out the hole in the head sold much better.

I wonder if there's a whole presidential assassin series of bobble-heads.
 
2012-03-13 09:11:37 PM  
Too soon?
 
2012-03-13 09:12:02 PM  
It will go well with my Taxi Driver poster signed by John Hinkley Jr. and my Franklin Mint commemorative Lee Harvey Oswald plates (set of 4: library, book storage facility, theater, grassy knoll).

/why yes, they have increased in value - thanks for asking
 
2012-03-13 09:12:11 PM  
Mind is forever.

Abe ;)'s.
 
2012-03-13 09:12:53 PM  
Was it over when Lee Harvey Oswald shot Lincoln at the Battle of Gettysburg?

Nobody wants the Leon Czolgosz bobblehead.
 
2012-03-13 09:13:48 PM  
It should be a bobble-leg doll, anyway.
 
2012-03-13 09:13:54 PM  
Or maybe compulsive victimhood has crossed another minor threshold.

Nothing is over ever.

meh.....I bought a presedential limo at the Dealy Plaza museum in dallas.

I also got a blow-up....I mean inflatable space shuttle at Johnson Space Center
 
2012-03-13 09:17:57 PM  
I'll bet their a hit with the southern states visitors.
 
2012-03-13 09:18:29 PM  
I think a Squeaky Fromme chew toy would be splendid.

GoldSpider: Or maybe compulsive victimhood has crossed another minor threshold.


I know - Lincoln played the victim card by dying and all - pussy
 
2012-03-13 09:22:33 PM  
I'll concede, though, that it may not be quite as culturally redeeming as the Nicole Brown Simpson PEZ dispenser...
 
2012-03-13 09:23:32 PM  

Gulper Eel: I think a Squeaky Fromme chew toy would be splendid.


Yeah?

Well, I think decimation is duodenal.

Think about that.

Gut-check.

Is that the one with a pencil sharpener in the hole in Lincoln's head?

Well... there are even more tacky things you can buy.

Still king of the tasteless bobbleheads:

Well other than that Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?
 
2012-03-13 09:33:08 PM  
That makes me want to pack up my JFK bobble heads and move to Dallas.

This nobody would probably buy one. That's the only presidential assassination location I've been to.

I scrolled by too quickly and thought that was Pyramid Head at first glance (which would've been awesome).
 
2012-03-13 10:05:47 PM  
Man. It's been 171 years. The grandchildren of the people who were alive at that time are all mostly dead. Can we just get over it already?

I don't know, but Jackie O had the first JFK nibble head, if ya know what I mean.

/bobble, and to the left

It would be far more tacky if the A. Lincoln bobblehead's head was on the ground.

How about a bomblehead?

I want one with the Kung Fu Action Grip™
 
2012-03-13 10:18:50 PM  
dolls, featuring big heads attached to the bodies by springs so they bobble,

So THATS how they work. Thank you article.
 
2012-03-13 10:22:57 PM  
The only thing in bad taste is failure to make a profit.
 
2012-03-13 10:23:16 PM  
I'll bet most of the people buying that bobblehead were still butthurt about how the war ended.

boobsrgood: The only thing in bad taste is failure to make a profit.


Wrong.
 
2012-03-13 10:32:41 PM  
At least I still have my Bobby Kennedy PEZ dispenser...
