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

02/02/2009

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.

Minor League Baseball: Barack is Brooklyn

01/28/2009

Baracklyn ObamaclonesThe Brooklyn Cyclones, the short-season minor league affiliate of my beloved New York Mets, have announced that the team will be temporarily renamed the “Baracklyn Cyclones” for their June, 23rd game against the Hudson Valley Renegades.

The team will sport fashionable “Baracklyn Cyclones” jerseys, and the first 2,500 in attendance will receive Obama bobbleheads.  Individual tickets to this game have already sold out, though group tickets are still available.

Well, you can’t argue with results.

The Brooklyn Cyclones?  Never heard of them.  I’ve certainly never worked at KeySpan park as a professional juggler.  It’s not like this was my boss’ idea…

I’d just like to take this opportunity to say what an amazing idea this is!  Wow.  For the first time ever I have no sarcastic remarks in the slightest.  Brilliant.
