Terrorism finger puppets! Uncanny crocheted likenesses of Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, Kim Jong Il, Ahmadinejad and George W. Bush.

What would one do with them?

You'd make them talk and fight each other and have adventures, of course.

You could place the GW one on your wang as a reverse-cure for impotence.

Stuffed germs... adorable - Toy terrorists... not so much.

You could have a little peace summit with them. They could all ride in on unicorns and sit down for a nice Dodo bird dinner, just like if it actually happenend in First Life.

I just noticed that OBL is the only one not holding a flag .... he has a machine gun.

So GW is a terrorist is no longer even a shocking commentary?

Hahaha, I think my boss is going to buy like 12 of these, she's currently screaming her head off about how awesome they are.

Nope. You look at those puppets and say, "Yeah, those are the influential world leaders who are scaring people and making my life difficult."

Fifty-five bucks?? I'm in the wrong business. Also, I think these are a bit canny.

I like how the George Bush one looks so much not like him that the maker had to put a big American flag on him.

Does Saddam come with a hangman's noose, or is that sold as a separate accessory?

The noose goes with the GW puppet. Oh, wait, Saddam was GW's puppet! (headspin...)

refining the joke: the saddam one should be a tiny hand puppet for the GW hand puppet

And the GW puppet should be a tiny hand puppet for the Dick Cheney hand puppet. Conspicuiously missing from the collection and I smell a RAT....

What a coincidence! A friend of mine is doing a psychology experiment and needs to find a puppet of Oscar the Grouch or Spongebob or some other character that children would identify as mischievous. She spent the whole morning driving around looking for one but no luck.

Who's more mischievous than lil' Kim Jong Il? Problem solved!

Awesome.

I want to show these to one of my friends who crochets all the time, perhaps she could devise a pattern...

Not that I can follow patterns, but I'd love to make myself a dictator finger puppet.
