John Wilkes Booth Bobblehead Sales Suspended At Gettysburg Giftshop

Is it too soon for jokes?  Apparently it is.  John Wilkes Booth assassinated President Lincoln in 1865.  They’d never heard of ‘bobbleheads’ back then.  If any were around in 2012 they wouldn’t understand it if we tried to explain it to them.

There’s a lot of stuff out there that just defies my ability to explain why people would want it.  Like the International Star Registry, anything with ‘Washington Redskins’ on it and a John Wilkes Booth bobblehead.  There’s even lists devoted to this sort of junk.

I respect anyone’s right to waste their money on whatever they want.  But selling John Wilkes Booth bobbleheads at the Gettysburg gift shop?  That does seem a little silly.

They are still available and still being made if you are looking to score one for your collection, just not at Gettysburg.  And while you’re at it order some Washington Redskins stuff too and wear it under the star you named after yourself.
