Trading Spouses Bobblehead


By and large, I'm not much of a fan of reality television. I think that Trading Spouses is a particularly low, mean-spirited program that does a good job of making fun of soulless suburbanites and small-town folk through selective editing. Being mean-spirited myself, I'm totally hooked by the show. I joined the rest of the country in watching Marguerite Perrin, the self described "God-Warrior" have a meltdown on National television. My own mother wouldn't allow me to have a rubber snake when I was growing up because she thought it was a symbol of the devil (I had to sit out when they were making "God's Eyes" in Vacation Bible School), so she was a little bit sympathetic me. Now, a crafty real estate agent from Florida has put together a one-off Perrin bobblehead made of polymer clay. It actually has a button that you can press that plays some of her pearls of wisdom:

  • I don't want someone with tainted... anything in beliefs, doing anything with my family!
  • Darksided!
  • Their entire house is darksided too!
  • Everything's un-Godly!
  • Gargoyles!... Psychics!
  • Get the hell out of my house- in Jesus' name I pray!
  • GET OUT!
  • I give it up to God I'm a GOD WARRIOR!
  • She's not a CHRISTIAN!
  • She was tampering in darksided stuff!
  • This is tainted- I don't want it. Whatever it is, it's tainted!
  • I want nothing. I want my God and I want my family
  • I want NO Money!
According to this article in the Los Angeles Times, Perrin is taking it all with a good dose of humor, and has even sent the artist an autographed 8x10 glossy. Bidding ends today! At the time of this writing, bidding is up to $850. Watch Goldenpalace.com swoop in and pay $10,000 for it. I REBUKE YOU, EXTREME CRAFTERS!
