Are you like millions of Americans who have fallen in love with the Iraqi Information Minister commonly referred to as Comical Ali? Do you miss hearing his delusional denouncements of events in Iraq in the face of overwhelming evidence? Well then the folks at Herobuilders.com have a new talking action figure for you!
Connecticut custom doll-making company Herobuilders.com has produced the 12-inch action figure in tribute to what it calls his “one-man battle against the observable facts”.
The standard version of the doll is selling for $24.95 and the talking version for $35.95.
The “Iraqi Dis-Information Minister” doll recites phrases such as:
- “There are no American infidels in Baghdad. Never!”
- “Our initial assessment is that they will all die.”
- “No. I am not scared and neither should you be.”
- “We have given them a sour taste.”
- “They’re not even (within) 100 miles (of Baghdad).”
Herobuilders.com claims to have been swamped with hundreds of orders for the doll in the first 24 hours they went on sale.—Sky News.
You can also order your own Babbling Osama doll if you want something a little more villainous. Of course, what good is a villain without some heroes to battle so in addition to Comical Ali and Babbling Osama they also offer a talking G.W. Bush doll. Beats the hell out of G.I. Joe’s kung-fu grip!
