Bobble-head Enthusiasts, Rejoice!

Merry gentlemen (and ladies), December is upon us and, with it, crass commercialization. And Christmas. Or Chrishannakanzaa or Festivus or whatever the hell you celebrate. The bottom line is, you’re probably going to be buying crap for people. Chances are that one-in-five of you know a bobble-head enthusiast. There’s also a one-in-ten chance that I pulled that statistic out of my shadowy regions.

Should you or someone you know be a fan of those dashboard-dwelling trinkets, be of good cheer. The folks at Rifftrax recently added a Michael J. Nelson bobblehead to their gift store. Sadly, this bobble-head appears to look more like the bastard child of Fred Armisen and Ed Helms than Mike. (A couple of forum-dwellers report that it actually looks a lot more like him, in person.) It’s $14.99, and one-in-ten comes autographed by Mike himself. And those are statistics you can trust.

Additionally, if you have any musical MSTies in your midst, you might try the Morrissey bobble-head. You might also be batshit insane, because this thing will cost you around $50-60. Still, you can snag it here, or just gawk at the other Morrissey paraphernalia. Or just listen to Radiohead covering The Smiths’ “The Headmaster Ritual” and call it a day. Whatever.
