Bummer . . . .


From the Dallas Morning News:

Talking Jesus Doll Sold Out

There's been much written about the scarcity of Nintendo's Wii
this holiday season, but last week Wal-Mart sold out of another popular toy: the Talking Jesus Messenger of Faith doll. The 12-inch doll is made by one2believe of Valencia, Calif., which also sells Nativity scenes and other Bible action figures such as Samson and Goliath Spirit Warriors.

The toys were sold at about 600 Wal-Mart stores and online at Target.com, and almost 20 percent of the Wal-Mart stores that sell Talking Jesus are in Texas.

"We sold out at Wal-Mart, and the toys are still available in a very limited supply at Target.com," said spokesman Joshua Livingston. The company won't restock again before Christmas.

Damn!

Now I've got to totally re-work my gift list . . . .

I'm surprised they're selling so well... I'm not very religious, but that strikes even me as faintly blasphemous.
