    Would you honestly get your daughter an Ed Gein doll to add to her Barbie playset? I guess if I didn't realize that there are some sick entrepreneurs out there, reading this article cemented the fact.

    Just when you think you've seen it all. It's too bad that the media has made these monsters out to be heros, otherwise crap like that wouldn't sell. I can't believe someone would waste $40.00 on one of those. [​IMG]

    But its not like their in poor taste; covered in blood, murderous accesories. If it didn't say Ed Gein on the package I'd have no idea who it was. I think the blame for this product rests with the media, who makes the killers famous as well as promoting the web site. The sculpter says he does no advertising, just lets the media write their stories.

    I agree. Who would buy that sick doll? Especially when the John Wayne Gacy doll is so much cooler and a great role model for the kids![​IMG]
