Obviously, it's never too soon to start thinking about ideas for next year's Christmas gifts. How about your own custom-made bobblehead?

Any idea how much these cost?

Good idea. I'll send them to all my enemies. Then, if I should die this year, they'll open their present and out pops this hideous bobblehead that looks like me from the grave. They'll all be like, man, wish that thing into the cornfield NOW, son.

If you have to ask how much it costs, you can't afford it (at least not the 250 minimum order).

This is entirely standard, and should not be questioned.

A local cardiologist gave out Bobbleheads of himself this year as Christmas gifts. I am dying to know how much this bit of self promotion cost him.

The ones at www.itsyousmall.com cost $200.

Yeah, right, like you guys don't already have gold-plated bobble-head versions of yourself sitting beside your monitors.

Psshaw!

How about one that actually has a function instead?

It's me. I'M THE BOBBLEHEAD.

Giving others cartoonish likeness of yourself is open license for them to try their hand at practicing voodoo on you.

a friend of mine got one of these after she ran the NYC marathon last month. I think it ran @$80.
