At first glance, I was convinced that this was an April Fool’s gag. But then my unusually keen mind realized that when this tweet was posted, it wasn’t April 1 yet. So I have to assume this is true.
And if it is, let me just say this…ewwwwwwwww!
The San Francisco Giants plan to give fans a Tim Lincecum bobblehead doll this season, on July 16 to be precise. The doll will be unique, to say the least…and pretty freaking disgusting too.
Whew! What a relief to know it’s not actually Lincecum’s hair that will grace the Tim Lincecum bobblehead doll. The obvious next question, other than “why have a giveaway item with human DNA?” is “where will the hair come from?”
Discarded barbershop clippings?
Unsuspecting homeless people?
The recently deceased?
On second thought, maybe it would be better to use Lincecum’s greasy salad–as long as you don’t have a problem with your bobblehead doll having that good old weed stank to it.
UP-FRIGGIN’-DATE: ‘Duk at Big League Stew did a little investigative work, and found out that the “real hair” story is bogus man…BOGUS! Don’t I look like a giant fucktard on this one–although, the Giants did say that this was not an April Fool’s gag, tweeting that the story was on the up and up. Only a second call to the team did it come out that the hair would be synthetic, which can be construed as real. Me, I assumed “real” hair meant human hair–disgusting, yes, but not out of the realm of possibility. As for the Giants, I hope you become the Pirates of the NL West…you dastards.
