The Worst Bobble Head in History Concerns Roy Halladay



Hey, do you want to own a Roy Halladay bobble head where his body is positioned such that he's throwing like a right-handed pitcher only his arms are switched around so that his glove is on his right hand and the ball is in his left (kind of like he was about to toss it like a frisbee, to second base)? Also, do you want the bobble head's face to resemble Billy Bob Thornton with a terrible line beard and even terribler gigantic, fake teeth more than it does the actual Roy Halladay?

If so, then MAN do I have the perfect link for you! Shady, licensing-ignoring Chinese toy manufacturer? Nope. This one's available directly from MLB, baby.

Thanks to Marc for bringing this complete and utter debacle to my attention.

Some people call it a cutter I call it a sling blade mmmm hmmm



/buys a dozen anyway




UPDATE
So somehow this has already turned into the biggest post in bolg history (and I'm pretty important as it is, so, you know). Thanks everyone!

 Wait-- a Peter King link? PETER KING LINK:

love his work on Uproxx

And my best friend Tyler Kepner from the NEW YORK TIMES:


Also a half-hearted hat/tip from HARDBALL TIMES

And-- YES! -- even Bleacher Report:

U JELLY,?

"But ZWR, aren't you just patting yourself on the back now?????!!"

Oh, dude you know it. Next question.

"Are there Photoshops?!! What about Photoshops/????@!!"


OKAY, FINE.


This one, from everyone's favorite NC-17 ZWR ripoff, I Want to Go to the Strip Club with Mike Stanton:



And this one from Cork Gaines, who is also apparently a pretty important blogger and journalist, as well as photoshop provocateur:


Feel free to submit your own and email them to me with the CONTACT link in the menu above. And Thanks again!



UPDATE TO THE UPDATE


**BEHOLD THE POWER OF THE PENGUIN! TELL 'EM, CBS SPORTS and Big League Stew**


bwahahahahahahahahahahahaha




And now, the exciting conclusion of "Bobblegate":



OMG so much better!


SCRAMBLE THE PR PEOPLE! SOUND THE ALARMS!!


BUT WAIT, WHAT:

So was it a fraud, or the wrong photo?! Hmmmm.

  9. maybe doc has two personalities - when pitching right-handed he is intense, focused, etc, and when pitching left-handed, he's... well... that.

  10. Well done, my friend. Any time someone puts the Phillies to shame, I will stand and applaud.

  11. Bobble Hallady has to smile, otherwise you'd spend your day, eyes locked upon Doc's rock-like gaze.

    Its like Viggo the Carpathian and Ray Stantz...

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'm not really sure the "correct" version is much better...in either case. Don't they have a picture of Halladay to base this thing on? Are bobbleheads like Ken dolls where any bobble will do?

    ReplyDelete
  13. No wonder he's losing so much this year.

  14. Cheers to the Continued Success of ZWR

  15. Not as bad as Lou Williams'... http://www.sbnation.com/nba/2012/2/3/2769867/lou-williams-bobblehead-photo

  16. The face looks like a Phillies pitcher from way back, Dick Ruthven....

    ReplyDelete
  17. The Phillies struggles when Roy is pitching will now go away...

    ReplyDelete
  18. I saw that - thing - with that wretched smile ages ago. I never thought to report it here and I should have. I was most appalled by the smile. Why? EVERYONE knows that Doc NEVER SMILES ON THE MOUND! EVER! Unless he just broken 27 faces in a row. Then he does.

  19. Let's be fair to the MLB, this was the picture they were going off of http://i891.photobucket.com/albums/ac113/Phanthom32/backwardsroy.png

  20. The power of globalization. Also, that last bobble is equally miserably ridiculous. What is he pitching, a teacup?

    ReplyDelete
  21. I found the limited edition version they were planning on releasing:

  22. The Roy Oswalt one in the Phillies Outlet looks like he can't figure out which way he's pitching either....
