Only $99. A bargain, considering the depraved YouTube videos that could be crafted using this doll as the leading character.

Now, the big question is... did Jimbo authorize and approve of this use of his personality rights?

Am I the only one surprised that Mr. Kohs didn't make a joke about the Jimbo doll hitting on Barbi?

The swami Vigilant will make a prediction:

Someone will buy one of these and make stop action porn ala Team America:World police...

The next sound will be million of youtube subscribers throwing up a little in their mouths.

Mr. Know-It-All

“The only thing that matters to him [now] is fame,” says a former associate. “I miss the old Jimmy Wales.”

As Wales’s profile grew, those close to him say he also started dressing in extravagant outfits such as a red satin Mao jacket (though he now wears all black because “everything matches”), took to referring to himself as the “benevolent dictator” of Wikipedia in internal e-mails and became prone to name-dropping. “I can’t speak to you right now; I have to go pour Nelson Mandela his orange juice,” one colleague remembers Wales saying on the phone.

That's hilarious. Now I'm waiting for someone to create a huge on-line game based on Jimbo's personality, where thousands of players vie for influence and acquire magical online powers based on forming alliances and engaging in intrigues... oops, never mind.

They may have also been liable for false advertising, based on the thick hair they had affixed to Jimbo's dome.

For posterity's sake, in case even the press release needs to be removed.
