Rasputin and Putin.

Roger von Oech is in St. Petersburg posing his Rasputin action figure at Rasputin's murder site:



And Vladimir Putin picked scenic Siberia as the place to pose his magnificent torso and move the world to awe and envy:

Rasputin action figures!

Now that's touristy salesmanship! One can only imagine what you could get in say, Berlin!

Does the Trotsky come with a pickaxe?
Can I get Lenin's Rolls Royce with the tank treads?

I wonder if an Ann Althouse bobble-head doll would sell?

Ann Althouse said...

I need to sell some blog merchandise. This blog is not making enough money. Any suggestions? And don't say egg salad sandwiches. They don't do well in the mail.

AllenS said...

Perhaps a Maxine voodoo doll. That way, when she gets wierd, we could all grab our pins, and get busy.

Ron said...

I would think T-shirts with "The go-to blogger for breasts" would be popular....

coffee mugs with bon mots from the blog on them? Maybe a squirrel in a vortex...

Ron said...

Maybe a calendar? Action photos of Madison(with you in them), wine drinking, vlogging...something like that?

special legal/historical days could be marked...

How about postcards of New York?

(I'm obsessed.)

Now if Obama were to become U.S. prez, we could have a Warm War of the Torsos. A sort of quien es mas ripped.

Actually, you're a good photographer. You could do a flower series, a street series . . . and they would have that added Althouse cachet. Bloggers and commenters would buy them out of sheer loyalty ... we''d start having our own self-contained blogger economy! Like Second Life!

Amba: All the photos are currently on Flickr with a creative commons license. Anyone can download them and print them (just not sell them). I could put only smaller files up for display and sell the larger files.

Get a wine making kit and start your own line of bourdeuxs or merlots.

I've been brewing beer for years and it's a blast.

If it's going to be alcohol, it's going to be Nun's Oath Ale.

One of these, with an Althouse head.

Hey, we had Bill & Hill in bathing suits allegedly dancing in the sand!

What a poseur that Putin is. I am sorry but his tits are sagging-I was expecting more seeing him in suits-I thought he would be more ripped.

Why don't you sell a t shirt with your theme, "tough on terror and tough on tits". I really think it has an incredible ring to it.

Or you could go the Pam Atlas Shrugs route and have a calendar of you. You would need to have pictures of yourself with John Bolten, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumfield and Paul Wolfowitz-do you have any of those laying around the house?

How about a calendar of Hilary's cleavage saying, "do you want to look at 4 years of this"?

Or how about a mousepad of you biting into an egg salad sandwich?

How about a podcast of your favorite songs?

Or at last resort you could just park yourself on the corner of some sleazy street to see how much your worth? I did that once and realized I am quite valuable.

Something about Putin looking so hunky grosses me out.

This blog isn't making enough money.

Enough money?! What an incoherent idea.

Isn't your blog making exactly as much money as it should? That's how the market works! Anyway, you don't pay for having a blog, so what can you possibly mean that the blog isn't maknig "enough" money?

Now if Angela Merkel would take HER top off...

Ruth Anne Adams said...

Wow! What a pair o'stroikas!

I woudn't mind seeing a picture of Babs Bush shirtless fishing-that would be hot.

titus13 said...

W Shirtless would be the most hot though-with tit clamps on-his poll numbers would shoot up with the unveiling of his manly bosoms.

The republican men would all get big hard ons if they could see W shirtless.

blake said...

That picture reminds me of something.

I love the smell of borscht in the morning. Smells like...smells like victory.

titus13 said...

Seeing W Shirtless Assrocket would explain in detail the curvature of W's tits, the appropriate number of hairs and how most liberals can't appreciate the beauty of the bush.

titus13 said...

hugh hewitt would spring a big one seeing w's shirtless, we would get a homoerotic editiorial in the Washington Post by Kristol and Rush would pop a few viagra and be in ecstasy seeing the w shirtless.

There would be a huge necon orgy at the American Enterprise with the shirtless picture being passed from necon to neocon-kind of like coke was passed around at studio 54 by capote and halston and liza with a z.

Putin looks like a photoshop job.
