Pewter model of the Texas School Book Depository

 -Ihmgcp41O3S Tjb2Rwbukxi Aaaaaaaaa4M 6U-Wvak3Dpk S1600 Texas-School-Book-Depository-Dallas-Replica-Landmark You can now have your very own detailed replica of the Texas School Book Depository Building as it looked on November 22, 1963, the day Lee Harvey Oswald (allegedly) shot John F. Kennedy from the sixth floor. This fine pewter reproduction is 3-1/4" tall. What's next, a scale model of the grassy knoll? Loren Coleman has more over at Twilight Language. "Own The Texas School Book Depository Building"


  1. Somewhere recently I saw a poll question, “if you die and go to Heaven, what do you want God to say to you?”  I think He can save himself a lot of one-on-one time by posting a sign at the pearly gates:

    “Lee Harvey Oswald shot Kennedy, and he did it all by himself.  -G”

  2. From the link:

    For assassination researchers, it is well worth owning. … I highly recommend it be acquired by serious investigators.

    Really?  Someone’s going to get this, put it on their desk, look at it, and suddenly discover … what exactly?

    1. They’re going to discover that Lee Harvey Oswald couldn’t possibly have shot JFK, because there’s NO WAY he could have fit into such a TINY BUILDING! I mean, what was he, an ant?

    2. Someone’s going to get this, put it on their desk, look at it, and suddenly discover … what exactly?

      The laws of physics. Possibly for the first time.

  3. I literally just drove past this building.  Every time I do so, I get creeped out by the fact that there are X’s painted in the lane marking the precise locations where the bullets hit JFK.  Its just weird.  They look so mundanely municipal.  Its like, “Oh what are those marks?  Is that where the water main is?”  “Nope.  That is where the leader of free world was murdered in broad daylight.”

    1. Me too!  I just drove by it twice this weekend.  It’s so weird to suddenly realize, “hey, I’m driving on the same spot where I’ve watched that guy get killed over and over” …

  4. This will go so well with my pewter Ford’s Theatre and pewter Baltimore and Potomac Railroad Station, I must collect the whole set…

  5. You’d think they could have done something to prevent this horrible tragedy, what with the date printed right there on the side of the building like that.

        1. I suppose I’ll just come out with a collectable spoon set made from disaster scenes.  What a Venn diagram that clientele is…

  6. Come on, everybody, it’s well documented that aliens ordered LBJ to have JFK shot because he’d discovered they were making crop-circles. Wake up, gullible sheeple! Sheesh!

    1. Same aliens that told the egyptians, mayans, and all the secrets of the universe. They simply came back, were disgusted with what they were seeing, ordered the hit job, and left again.

      1. “sheeple” is still a viable word.  i’m taking it back.

        Hehe…one of my favorite neologisms too. Luckily, there’s enough sheeple to go around :)

        Though, thanks to Randall Munroe I can’t think “sheeple” without seeing this:

  7. When your cube-mate places this with dramatic flourish on his desk, it could be your cue to call in sick the next day.
