You have to wonder what took them so long. I guess our friends in the Chinese figurine industry strategized that the Obama Kill (sic) Osama commemorative piece would have more of an impact at the 10th anniversary of 9/11. You have to hand it to them on the level of detail, too. Well, mostly…
This highly detailed, hand-painted work of art features fine poits such as the Blackberry on Obama’s belt and his almost-empty cash box sporting the country’s newly-downgraded credit rating. The windswept tie. The flag lapel pin. That determined look of accomplishment.
But while Bin Laden, lying dead under Barack’s triumphant polished oxford, shows a realistic center-of–forehead bullet hole as inflicted by SEAL Team Six, he’s missing the center-of-mass shot they also reportedly meted out.
And then there’s the gun. The figurine sculptors armed the President with a highly detailed and just as highly improbable AN-94 assault rifle. You read that correctly. A Russki rifle instead of the HK416 that many reported the SEALs used to terminate the reclusive Al Qaida mastermind. And I’m pretty sure Obama’s a lefty. Left-handed, that is. But you have to admire that trigger discipline, right?
But we can overlook that, can’t we? Or can we. Anyway, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to commemorate the takedown of the most hated American enemy since Schicklgruber himself. And if you can believe the web site, they’ve limited this to a run of only 500, so order now. Operators are standing by!
All this quality and detail doesn’t come cheap, though. No siree. This impressive, mantel-worthy piece of memorabilia will run you $129. Plus shipping. But think about it for a minute. Can you really put a price on this much molded plastic awesomeness? Don’t you need a way to commemorate the gutsy call that finally took down Bin Laden? Of course you do. So raid the new gun fund and bring one of these babies home. Your grandchildren will thank you.
