Clutter Exclusive PINK Gipper/Reagan Bust By Frank Kozik
My god did I not expect that at 2AM. Fantastic.
Creepiest thing I’ve seen this Halloween season.
NEEDS UNICORN CHASER!!!
*frantically charges off in search of one*
the “destroy” nameplate can be placed over the eyes.
maybe that will help.
Big Pink Ronnie when I load the site… Cool, but NOT COOL.
I noticed an “A” on his button, that must stand for AWESOME.
For those who might find the life-sized bust intimidating, similar ones are available from the same artist in four-inch size from KidRobot. Also available are Lenin, Khomeini, Kim Jong-un, and Castro in similar states of caricature for just $10: http://www.kidrobot.com/FrankKozik.html
A few of these sans shoulders on pikes, and I’ll have the scariest yard in the county for Halloween.
Wow, pink landfill!
That is some garbage.
X marks the spot. What does the X on the forehead signify?
Where the bullet should have gone? [/revengefantasy]
To me it signifies a zombie Reagan lovingly resurrected from the dead by FOX “News” watchers and other idiots that get their monolithic info-diet via conservative radio shows. But, it goes terribly wrong for them because Reagan is brought back from Hell (where he belonged) and now undead Reagan is desperately trying to right the wrongs of his past life so Gawd will let him out of Hell (where he belonged).
Zombie Reagan goes from right wing radio station to right wing radio station trying to find brains to eat, but finds none.
its a reference to Charles Manson
Indeed. I had the creepy experience of meeting Charlie’s protégé Squeaky Fromme in the mid-70s, and she also sported a stylish X on her forehead. A few days later, she tried to assassinate President Gerald Ford… a nice tie-in to this bust of Ronnie
Can I get that as a cookie jar?
I’m thinking “Peppermint Pig”. Does it come with a hammer?
Awww, I thought it was a bar of soap, I was gonna get clean with it while being dirty.
It captures his Inner Ghoul quite effectively.
