Steve Nash isn't the only pale-faced former MVP to be immortalized
in the NBA's collectible bobblepop lack-tion figure series. Dirk Nowitzki has also received the glorious "bobble and lollipop" treatment. Or should I say "Dirk Nowitzki"?
know what you're thinking, and the answer is: Yes! The Dirk doll also transforms into a savory yet unmistakably phallic lollipop that emerges seductively from Herr Nowitzki's man region
. My funny bone was once again tickled by the fact that the doll's shorts have to come off
to reveal the hidden candy inside. A case of art imitating life...or life imitating art?
Much like the Nash doll, Dirk's doppleganger doesn't really look all that much like The Flying Dutchman. I mean, look
at it. The designers obviously didn't know how to handle Dirk's Teen Wolf
-like facial hair, so they just drew on a goatee and added a stripe on either side of his mouth. That combined with what I've been told is a neanderthal-like protruding brow make the doll look less like Dirk and more like a Geico caveman. Think I'm wrong? You be the judge.
