What the…??

Design Toscano catalog, I’m with you. “Bigfoot, the Garden Yeti” sculpture? Absolutely, but he’s not going in the garden, how cool would he look lurking in my kitchen? “The Grand Ruler Life Size Anubis” statue? Why not, $1,250 is a bargain to be tricking out your apartment Stargate style.

But the Barack Obama Collectible Dragon Sculpture for $13.95? That’s just…weird. If you order this I bet you get put on some kind of secret government list, right next to everyone who buys Behold a Pale Horse from Amazon. Is the design team at Toscano not so subtly sending a message that they’re down with all the nuts who misquote The Book of Revelation to back up their Obama is the Antichrist theory? After all, “And they worshiped the dragon which gave power unto the beast…and there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things..” Harmless creepy tchotchke, or subversive conspiracy solidarity statement? I think I’ll order the T-Rex Trophy Wall Sculpture instead and play it safe.

    Now if they make an Obama head roaring out of the wall…I’d buy it!

    Actually, I was wondering what to get for a friend’s 2/11 birthday.  I think she’d love that Obama statue.

    That Obama statue looks like The Joker.  I’ve always been biased towards T-Rexes and Raptors protruding out of the walls at me though.
