Oh, so that's what "Michael" looks like.

The original Cabbage Patch dolls/ Beanie Babies.

In keeping with my comment on the fat/skinny thread; look at the size of that thing's head. What is it with us and big heads?

That's not exactly color blind profiling.

Rose said...

Need some scissors, and some felt to make him a little cave-man outfit. 'Member that?

My troll was a size or two larger and had purple hair.

It was wearing a pirate outfit complete with ragged pants, eye patch and sword.

My father gave it to me when I was a little kid.

He got it from his union rep.

I was too young to get the irony.

Those were so popular when I was a kid. I hated them.

A redhead. I love redheads. Nice photo too.

In other news, take a look at the photo of Obama up on Drudge. The Pres. does not look well to me. I continue to think that he may have undisclosed health issues. Hope not. Joe Biden is obviously in the peak of health.

I know. Groundless speculation. Just a feeling.

I love them. I use one as one of my avatars.

To me the photo looks like the statue of Lincoln is pissing on the back of Obama's chair.

EDH said...

I wonder if I could get an NEA "stimulus" grant for a derivative work?

I'll call it... Piss Lincoln.

DAvid - "I know. Groundless speculation. Just a feeling."

Get your hands out of your pants and see if it goes away.

Duh.

Wow... that takes me back. We all had troll dolls back in the late 60s. But my best memory of troll dolls was in the 80s when I was shooting catalogs for a company that sold them. As I was carefully styling the hair of a troll doll, I turned to the art director and said "We're getting paid good money for this".

Word is that if you bury one of those in your yard, face up, the world economy will start to grow in the 3rd quarter of '09.

Pass it on.

This is an original troll doll from the early 1960s, with sheepskin hair. I'm sure my doll has the best hair!

Rick Lee said...

Wow... I'm impressed that you still have your 60's era troll doll! I remember one that I had with orange hair. I'm sure it's in a landfill somewhere.

fcai said...

I dated a lot of redheads, not an airplane redhead in the bunch.

No wonder you never sold your big house- you could not part with all your stuff!

Meade said...

You're right, AJ. Her entire third floor is dedicated as a troll museum. She has 100's of them. It's only a matter of time before she adds a mummified Doyle, Mary, Michael and Maxine.

Ann:

I had no idea you played bingo!

A celebrity endorsement for my parish's bingo would be a real coup--would you be a sweetie and do a blurb?

jdeeripper said...

The troll is harmless and yet the shadow of the troll is terrifying.

Fred4Pres said...

Is it a rule that every blog site must have two or three of them?

jdeeripper said...

See what I'm saying!!

It's like he's at the window with a knife.

One theory is that we are genetically programmed to be attracted to babies, whose heads are large in proportion to their bodies.
