What’s With All These Fucking Bobbleheads?

posted by MP Johnson

Last week I mentioned the Jello Biafra bobblehead. I didn’t point out the obvious: It’s a bobblehead of a guy who rarely includes his picture on his albums. He’s a normal looking dude. Why would you want him in toy form?

But if you think a Jello Biafra bobblehead is boring, wait until you see the Guitar Gods series: Wayne Kramer from the MC5 and James Williamson from the Stooges. Look at JW. He doesn’t even seem happy to have been immortalized in bobblehead form. What the fuck kind of toys did the guys who made these play with when they were younger? Were they deprived of He-Man and G.I. Joe or something? Were they only allowed legos and that’s why they think this shit is okay?

My dad would make a more dynamic bobblehead than these two guys. He was a gravedigger. It could be him posing with a shovel and a can of beer. That would be way better than these two awesome guitar players. Someone start a not-famous dads series of bobbleheads. Either that, or how about pop star bobbleheads? Where’s the Lady Gaga bobblehead?
