I stumbled upon this gem – not sure how. For those of you with $100 to burn, you can buy this 25″ x 19″ oil painting on canvas of an Albino bowler…..yes, you heard me correctly, an Albino bowler.
I had to investigate further because this was just too weird (and I’ve posted about squirrel feet earrings and foetus shaped cookie cutters.)
I then searched the words Albino Bowler in Google and found this great site which gives a fictitious explanation (I really hope it is!) of the urban legend history behind this white haired phenomenon.
Legend has it that a mysterious Albino was seen at a bowling alley playing a near perfect game alone and in silence, and then leaving as inconspicuously as he arrived.
Consequently you can let the legend live on with a variety of merchandise such as this action figure (Click on him to learn more.)
Interestingly enough I even tried Amazon to see if they were for sale, and bingo…of course they are.
Not only that, (and here is the icing on the cake), people searching for the Albino Bowler also looked at Crazy Cat Lady, an ‘action’ figure of an eccentric looking women wearing a winter coat with pyjamas, & surrounded by felines!
In fact, it said that 54% of people viewing Albino Bowler, bought a Crazy Cat Lady ?!!! Excuse me?! Why? Why? Why?…and Why? That is some seriously hardcore online comparison shopping.
I was wondering what sort of imaginary games that people could play, who have bought these 2 unusual action figures because in real life, it doesn’t sound like a natural match made in heaven.
You have my word, that if I buy my kids these for Christmas this year, I’ll video their reaction and post it. I’ll also video what games they create with these 2 characters – could be priceless.
I’m off to Amazon to find a lost, pigeon-toed parking attendant action figure. I’ll let you know – I’m optimistic.
