It’s “cute, yellow, and chubby,” not “fat, unfunny, and appealing to the lowest common denominator.”

You know how sometimes you’re just rolling along, accepting the various mythologies of the society you live in, and then suddenly something iconic eats itself alive?

I didn’t need to know that CelebriDucks existed. But now that I do, because of a press release announcing this, I just can’t stop looking at them and wondering what went wrong. This one and this one are overtly racist. This one is not only preposterous, but is totally overdoing it with the crucifix. This one would be much better if it were just plain Tim Curry–that I might buy. And the text description under this one just assaulted my blood stream like so much salmonella-infested tomato.

Ernie, I am so, so sorry. This is not the legacy you deserve.
