Jesus Dolls--They Can't Even GIVE Them Away!
The Marine Reserves' Toys for Tots program has turned down a donation of 4,000 "Bible-Quoting" Jesus dolls.
Toys for Tots vice president Bill Grein said, "We can't take a chance on sending a talking jesus doll to a Jewish family or a Muslim family. Kids want a gift for the holiday season that is fun."
On the one hand, I guess that means that "Christ" has now officially been taken out of "Christmas!"
On the other hand, in spite of the irony, I actually agree with this decision!
Don Asmussen's Bad Reporter comic (from today's SF Chronicle) offers an alternative, off-the-wall spin to the "Jesus Doll" phenomenon.
Who would'a guessed! Karl Rove outfoxed by Jesus!
