All around the mulberry bush: Barack-in-the-box

by

Pop goes ObamaAh the Jack-in-the-box.  No not the fast-food chain with a history salmonella outbreaks.  The children’s toy.  Is there anything more inappropriate?

Seriously, what kind of toy is that for a kid?  Pull a crank until a strange man pops out of nowhere scaring the living buhjeezus out of you.  It reminds me a little of this.

Heeeeeeeeeeeere’s Obama!  Introducing the Barack-in-the-box.  At only $29.95, it’s a steal.

I can’t think of any better way to teach your child about the historical importance of this moment than by giving them a toy that will give them nightmares.

Also available is the limited edition Hillary-in-the-box.

I wonder, if Hillary had won, would there be the same amount of inappropriate Clinton merchandise?  Hillary Clinton boxer-briefs?  Now that’s what I call an aphrodisiac.

Thanks to Jackie D for the link.

    Well that’s actually kind of adorable. I think I like it because he (it?) looks like a Mr. Rogers land of make-believe puppet, with those weird little arms.
