A moment of humor from the world of voodoo

The Bad Boyfriend Voodoo Doll is a cute and silly gag gift for anyone that gets this Voodoo/Voodun joke. It's just totally silly and if you can get passed that, it's just a lot of fun.
cute, silly
far from a real voodoo doll

useful review
Over the years I have learned that most people in America don't know much about Voodoo and Voodun. I could write a whole college thesis on these two very deep religions and how they are shown in American media and films. Zombies and Voodoo dolls would be at the top of the list. But films will tap into trendy ideas about anything that happens in the world. But that's just my view of Hollywood and how it has managed to really mess up people's views of many things other than Voodoo and Voodun.

So most of us see that wonderfully rich and spiritual world as something fun and playful. Bad Boyfriend Voodoo Doll would be a good example of how the idea of the voodoo doll forgot to take that left at Albuquerque when it came to the states and lost it's bite and found more humor. Bad Boyfriend Voodoo Doll is bright red and nine and a half inches tall. The fabric feels like some kind of cotton blended with something synthetic. And I would bet that it's stuffed with the usual fire retardant fluff that most stuffed animals are. It comes with ten white headed pins as well.

There is all kinds of sayings printed on the doll. The sayings are all things that a woman or a man would want a boyfriend or a husband to do, or that the makers of The Bad Boyfriend Voodoo Doll think that they would want. It says things like "Buy me jewelry", "Take me shopping", "Remember my birthday", and "Cuddle with me". There is more on there too. The idea is that you would put a pin into what ever saying that you want the "man" in your life to do for you.

Don't get me wrong, it's a cute thing to have around. But it's a total bastardization of two religions. Thankfully the Voodun friend of mine that gave it to me got the joke of it and thought that I would think it was funny. It's cute and funny and a good shocker to have siting around the house.
Follow-up commentary
All I can say is that The Bad Boyfriend Voodoo Doll is really funny. It's a priceless gag gift for someone with an open view of things and very dark humor.

    That's funny. I didn't even know Eden carried this. Thanks for the info!
  • Airen Wolf
    I agree that it is a cute premis but considering that more religions than Voodoo/Voodun actually use poppets, fithfaths and corndollies it is a bit rude at it's core. Still they have done everything to make sure it won't generate the same energy as a real poppet. White pins, synthetic fibres and fluffy fiber stuffing should render the doll inert in all but the most skilled hands.
    There are better ways to suggest these things to your simply asking for them....

    Thanks for the review.

    i make it a rule not to enter into theological discussions('cause I invariably piss someone off) but i will say this is less "potentially harmfull" than the "ex-boyfriend" variety. Energy and thought have power and repercussions regardless of if the "transmitter" is relatively inert. Intent carries weight. That aside, it's a rather cute gag gift, but i still prefer good old communication, failing that it's probably more effective to stick a pin in your boy-friend than a doll.

    i knew i would be pushing it a little bringing up the voodoo and voodun thing. but this actually was actually a gift from a friend that is a voodoo priest and he thought it was so funny that he picked a few of them up for people
  • LambChop
    Can't I just push pins into my ex-boyfriend directly?
    Oh, he may like that.
  • exploringthechimera
