News, but not the serious kind
Get our Baracktion action figure!
Here’s a glimpse at a Barack Obama “action figure” now on sale.
Now, one problem is, there isn’t much action. You can see the accessories, like a microphone and watch and necktie. Not exactly GI Joe.
Wouldn’t you think there’d at least be a little plastic Nuclear Football, or maybe he’d be ducking some itty-bitty plastic shoes, like the George Bush action figure?
The other problem is, it only looks like the new President if he went on a three-day tequila bender and then stumbled to the White House gate shouting, “You kids get out of my yard!”
My point here, without being critical, is that for $59.99 this toy should look more like Obama, and less like Lurch from The Addams Family. I’m just saying…
