Not enough Purell in the world for this one (potentially NSFW)

If there was a Thrifts of Terror competition, I think that I might have won.

"Hey, that's an interesting retro Moses figurine.  Let's get a closer look."



"Oh God, what have I done?!"


Please excuse me while I burn my hands off.

  1. Not Suitable for Women or Not Suitable for the Weak-of-Stomach? Man, you've set the bar so incredibly low for Thrifts of Terror that I don't think anyone could...or would ever choose to...go that low again. I think you just won the undisputed title as King in perpetuity. Future generations of wee Armadillos are going to have to try to live this one down...LOL I'll be laughing about this all day as I replay in my head what I think your face looked like at the moment of realization.

    1. Not Suitable For Work, but any of those would work too. If anybody finds anything worse than this, they'd probably get a ban from blogger.

  2. I've got to tell you that when I looked at the first photo, my immediate reaction was that Moses had on disproportionately large shoes...hahaha

    1. For obvious reasons I didn't handle it long enough to check out the tag. From the looks of it, it'd take a few D-cells.

    As a local I am terrified/compelled to ask, where did this... happen?

  8. I just laughed out loud and woke up my son! That is hilarious! And also disgusting....and why in God's name is this in a thrift store? Shouldnt there be some sort of at least MINIMAL inspection process? I hope it wasnt in a mission based thrift shop!

    1. The part that has me chuckling is thinking about some old lady taking it home and using it in her nativity set or as a holiday decoration (Is it Moses, a wise man, Santa? Hard to tell.)

  10. Well, uh, er, uhm. Forget it. I think everyone's on the same page, no further commentary needed and def burn hands off and replace with ultra cool pirate hooks.

  11. I hate to admit this but I have one of those. It belonged to my grandfather. He had a rather mischivous sense of humor and bought(?) one to 'surprise' my grandmother's church friends. I wish I knew more about it and where it originates.
