The Jesus Christ Superstore
March 1, 2001 8:21 PM   Subscribe

The Jesus Christ Superstore (supposedly) sells action figures, modeled after Jesus, the Pope, Buddha, Krishna, and more. "Putting the fun back into fundamentalism and the laughter into sectarian slaughter." (Yeah, it's a novelty link. But it's a good one.)

I couldn't help but notice that Buddha is pretty buff for a big guy, and Allah's, um, invisible.

Cute idea. But when they actually start carrying stock, then maybe this'll ascend to a higher concept/plane.

“look closely at thumbnails to view larger images”

LOL ... that’s hilarious.

yikes. watch the toes.

I am not offended by these personally, but I could definately see some individuals and groups getting real pissy about these action figures.

worth a good laugh though in my book.

A bit off-topic...I'm always intrigued by who got stuck with .net domains, and who got the .com

In this case, strangely, Ecrush, a pseudo-matchmaker service for teenage girls, owns jesuschristsuperstore.com. Just plain weird.
