Would you pay $75 for bobblehead of Harrisburg mayor?

From the "News of the Weird" (that is the Patriot News local section) is the report that bobblehead's of Harrisburg mayor Stephen Reed are being sold for $75 apiece to raise money to build a national sports museum.

I'm not sure which idea is zanier - a sports museum in Harrisburg (which seems reminiscent of the absurd Wild West Museum idea) or an exorbitantly expensive bobblehead of the mayor. Trust me, if you want a bobblehead of a true Pennsylvania icon, save 75% and buy one of Scranton's Dwight Schrute.

Are there bobbleheads available for certain liberal members of the House? Congress? Seems somehow strangely appropriate. Maybe I've found a new business...hmmm....

Actually, bobbleheads are also known as wobblers. So many we restrict production to RINOS (Republicans in Name Only).
